There are two things that every RVer should know: the weight of your RV and your current tire pressure. I’d say that these two things aren’t mutually exclusive either. First, the weight of your RV is of critical importance because it is very easy to overload your rig to an unsafe weight. It goes without saying that an overloaded RV is a dangerous RV.
Check out the video below for important data on your RV.
Now, tire pressure. This is an area of extreme importance that some RVers sometimes take a flippant attitude towards. You know, just looking at your tires and eyeballing your tire pressure. What’s the problem of this? Well, you very well could have created a dangerous combination of The Overweighted vs. The Under-Inflated. This imbalance can put unnecessary stress on your tires, thus increasing the potential for catastrophic failure. The video below explains both the importance of maintaining proper weight distribution and tire pressure.
So you see, just because you have space available, it doesn’t mean you should use it. Every trip should be well thought out in regards to what your are loading your RV with. If you have any questions about weight distribution, or maintaining the appropriate tire pressure in your RV you can call PPL Motorhomes and ask us any questions you may have.
