Default tire pressure

I cant find recommended air pressures on my old 69 bird. Im running 90 lbs on the front and both duals. 9.00x20s. None of my literature has suggestions and there is no ratings anywhere on the coach. Any Ideas---Thanks ---Rob

Rob,

I'm not sure where the factory recommended tire pressures are pisted somewhere on your 'Bird, but you should read;

Wanderlodge Owners Group > Links, Files, Old Yahoo Forum Database and Downloads > Links > Tires and Wheels and Weighing Your 'Bird

I would suggest that you find a public weigh scale similar to what is described in HOW TO WEIGH YOUR BIRD.pdf and get the weights then look up the recommended tire pressures for your particular weights at each tire(s) position.

Default Tire pressure

Even if you find a tire pressure recommendation from BB somewhere on your rig, I wouldn't trust it. If I had trusted mine, my tires would be seriously overloaded for the weight I'm carrying. I had to increase my front and rear tire pressures 10-15 lbs over the BB numbers.

As someone has suggested, weigh your coach (good to do at an FMCA rally where you can weigh each wheel) and then after trying to sort of distribute the weight properly, look at the tire manufactures recommendations for the pressure needed for the weight you are carrying.
