I keep them close to the sidewall max all the time. In the winter I want it to cut through the snow, so I don't want any sidewall squashing. I also tow a large snowmobile trailer as often as possible. In the summer, we're camping as often as possible. It's just not worth the effort to be changing it all the time, and I don't like the spongy ride caused by the lower pressure.

Nothing wrong with that. You may jump to 40 - 44 psi to stiffen up the sidewalls some and take a little of the squishy feel out. It's trial and error sometimes.

So you guys think you get better tire wear at the higher pressure on the sidewall of tire

The best way to check contact pattern is to park in a paved lot or driveway, take sidewalk chalk and draw a straight line across the tire from shoulder to shoulder. Then drive until the lines are transferred to the pavement and see what it looks like. Adjust pressure accordingly.
