[RC] Fwd: tire pressure - M Paul latiolais

I don't remember seeing this question on ridecamp before. I just got back from my friendly neighborhood Less Schwab Tire Center ( a local icon) having bought two new back tires, the first for this vehicle, a 2007 Silverado 2500. Les Schwab is happy to check tire pressure for free, (and fix flats for free). So I rely on them to tell me what the best tire pressure to run. When I put on the camper (on a different truck), I would always run the rear pressure up to the max, 80 psi.

Now with a three horse aluminum gooseneck (small living quarters), the question comes up as to what tire pressure I should use. When they put the new tires on, they set the front at 65 and the back at 60. I told them that would not do. The attendant said that the Durimax is a heavy engine, but if I always have the trailer on (which I do) I should run the back tire pressure up. He put then put 70 psi in the back, but told me to run it up to 80 when I used the trailer. That did not make sense. He should have just set it at 80 psi or left it where it was.
