Why Weigh Your RV?

Improper weight and distribution of weight can cause uneven tire wear, increasing the chances of a tire failure, as well as cause premature wear on other components. Having your RV weighed on a per-tire basis allows you to without-a-doubt know what pressure your tires should be set at. Your RV should be fully loaded at the time of weighing, this includes passengers, food, clothing, water, fuel, supplies, any towed vehicles behind a motorhome, and the tow vehicle for an RV trailer. Each tire manufacturer supplies a load and inflation table to find the exact tire pressure. These tables can be found at your local tire shop, online through the respective manufacturer’s website or by visiting: www.tireminder.com/load-tables. Below, you’ll find an example of a load and inflation table which Michelin provided for their XZE tire.
