How to CALCULATE tire pressure for a motorhome • Or Bad Things Happen
Calculating proper air pressure in your motorhome tires is NOT a guessing game. It's science & math. It can prevent motorhome tire failure.
PSI is a formula that is calculated on your weight & your tire manufacturers tire charts & it's very important to know how to do the math. It's math every motorhome owner should be using to prevent motorhome tire accidents, tire failures & tire blowouts.
I’m going to share with you how you calculate the proper amount of air pressure (PSI) to put into your Motorhome Tires.
Odds are, many if not most Motorhome owners don't have the correct amount of air pressure in their Motorhome tires & that's when bad things happen. In this Howto Inflate Proper Air Pressure in Motorhome Tires • THE ULTIMATE GUIDE video, I’m going to explain this formula—in DETAIL—with a bunch of power tips. Before you know how to properly calculate the amount of air you put in your motorhome tires, you need to weigh your Motorhome.
This video should be taken seriously. It could save your life, keep you & those around you safe while on the highway, perhaps prevent thousands of dollars in damage from unnecessary tire mishaps or failures & give you a much better handling on the highway.

VIAIR AIR COMPRESSORS • VIAIR 40045 400P Air Compressor https://amzn.to/2ORvxUO • VIAIR 450PRV Silver Automatic Portable Compressor Kit https://amzn.to/2WXiB4d NOTE: I feel from a money and convenience perspective the 450PRV is—probably—the better deal. Why? Because you get (2) 30' air hoses and a carrying bag that will hold them both. Plus if you expect to use yours more than 15 minutes at a time you're covered there too. Now the 40045 400P isn't nothing to sneeze at by no means. It's the same unit I have now. It's really your choice. But either one will easily deliver the power what any RVer will need. • Both of these VIAIR Air Compressors produce 150psi. • If you want even more hose, you can buy an additional 30' VIAIR air hose here https://amzn.to/39opRLq

DISCLAIMER: We are in no way experts or professional mechanics. But being a journeyman millwright for years & being EX Military, has proven to be very helpful in my lifetime learning how to care for & maintain all sorts of machinery & equipment like: helicopters, airplanes, tanks, motorcycles & many types of other vehicles. That, along with 18 months preparing & upgrading our RV before we went full time, & now traveling for several years has gained us a lot of knowledge. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you're unsure about working on your RV. Work you perform or products you purchase based on any information we provide is at your own risk.
