Tire pressure on TT and TV

Want to check as I'm confused.

It says max psi on trailer is 50. On truck 40.
When I got it at dealer psi on TT was 50, so I kept it like that for 1st 2 years.

Had a slow leak(nail) in one TT wheel (2 axles) n took it to just tires to switch out w spare/fix leak.
They chewed me out for having it at(or 2-3psi under) max.

Now I keep pressure at 42-ish. Also I under inflate TV 5 psi from max.
I live in So Cal so it's hot so TT is stored outside/exposed.

Some YouTube sites say I should be at 50???

What is right for optimal safety and also smooth ride

Thanks in advance

Always run your TT tires at max psi. per the manufacturers. They were designed to run at max psi.

Great info. I was told I was inflating wrong this whole time by a tire shop n it threw me for a loop.
The advice still feels wierd to overinflate over by 3psi if the tires are super hot.

Any advice on TV inflation? Should that be max? We are in hot climate and air expands, right?

Run them at max psi or maybe a 1-2 less. Under inflation can cause the tire to deteriorate quicker because they deflect more as it rolls, which builds up heat. Not to mention fuel economy. Over inflating is just as bad. Less tread contact on the ground.

For some good information google the following


tire load verses air pressure


As for pressure on the TV you should start at what the sticker recommends and increase pressure as the load on the tires increase.
The above will give you charts on what the different loads/pressure's should be However you should never exceed max air pressure in a tire.

Sorry but that statements needs a correction, TV pressure is what is indicated on the door jamb, you dont play with it. This is the pressure determined by the manufacturer for the best ride and the best performance of the truck, fully loaded or not. There is nothing to play with there.

The statement is correct your reply needs corrected But your are correct to a point that the decal is what the Vehicle manufacturer recommends But if you look at the tires they have a max PSI rating on them and the purpose for that is to adjust tire pressure to meet the load on the tire.. Suggest you read the charts
