It should be listed on the door sticker. With no other information inflate to the maximum on the sidewall. To really set it right you need to weight the RV fully loaded and get axle weights. Then, look up your tires on the manufacturer's load inflation table and inflate to the pressure for that weight.

Until you get it weighed, go with the pressures listed on a placard in your RV, or use the axle weights on the placard and use the tire manufacturers charts.

Towing a Ranger, not towing with. A Bounder is a motorhome.

Yep, using the sticker and blindly inflating to the max on the sidewall is a very bad idea. Also, how old are the tires? Check the DOT codes and if they are 5 years old or more plan on replacing them soon.

Good luck.

I use the pressure noted on the tire, not the pressure printed on the vechile.

Once again, I am reminding people that those load/inflation pressure charts are MINIMUMS, NOT recommendations.
