Tire pressure

I have a 02 jayco 26 ss. Why would the front tire pressure be 65 lbs, and the rears 80 lbs. I guess the manufacture knows more than I do, but thought more tire pressure gives better milage. Will it be a problem to go to 80 on the fronts? Thanks for any input. Stan

You could affect the handling and the ride will definitely be rougher, more is not always better. The best thing to do is weigh each axle and then use the pressures recommended by the tire manufacturer based on the weights.

You will not be happy with the ride or steering IMO.
