New from Florida

Recent purchase of a Seneca 37K on a Freightliner chassis. Third coach...
2007 Nat RV Dolphin- great coach

2016 Winnebago Cambria...
2019 Jayco Seneca 37K, first experience with a diesel, 360hp, 800 lbft, Allison 3000, impressed. Great ride compared to previous... Curious though, Jayco says tires should be @ 110 psi, which is the maximum for the Alcoa wheels. Weighed coach- 24,360 lbs. Michelin 275/80 22.5 XZE2 tire weight chart theoretically says I can go as little as low as 75 psi, which is still over the weight of the coach, sounds too low... any have any thoughts, experience, would very much appreciate...

Congrats and enjoy.

Isn't the GVW around 30,000? Since they don't know how your going to load it they always use the max or close to it. I would definitely use the numbers based on actual weight and adjust a little if needed to get the best ride and handling.

If you lower the pressure on the duals, be sure the tire sidewalls don't touch!

There are numerous "on-line" map generators. Here is a link to one of them.
