You don't. You weigh it fully loaded as you would normally use it, set tire pressures based on that weight and use those pressures from there on in. If your running empty you will just have a rougher ride.

Your sticker says you can only add 700lbs?? should be 7,000lbs. something with yours is wrong.
19,500-7,064=12,436.....12,436-5,000(toad)=7,436, those are the numbers and they make no sense to me

Now that makes sense, and safety, I totally agree.

This is very different than the new stickers Jayco puts on the Greyhawk. My sticker lists the following: The combined Weight of Occumpants and Cargo should never exceed 1809 lbs a full load of water equals 272 lbs
The next sticker states:
The weight of this recreation vehicle motorhome as completed at the factory with full propane tank and full engine fuel is:
12691 lbs
the GCWR of this recreation vehicle motorhome is:
22000 lbs
The sticker for the OP seems to indicate a much lower (incorrect) factory dry weight or Jayco changed their stickers.

It would be interesting to see the Ford sticker from the OP's vehicle. Ford changed the GCWR from 19,500 to 22,000 at some point which increased the towing from 5,000 to 7,500 if you have the correct Ford frame rail extensions. (Note: not the bolted on Jayco versions). Ford didn't change the GVWR as far as I know it is still 14,500 LBS.
