Favorite Truck Camper(s): Lance, Adventurer, Host
Type and Brand of Truck(s) Owned: 2015 F350 LB 4x4 crew dually
Type of Tiedowns used: Torklift
Truck and Camper Setup: 2011 Lance 1181 on my 2015 Ford F350 dually with air bags. Torklift frame mounted with fastguns.



Having trouble finding reliable tire pressure info on my 2015 F350 dually carrying my 2011 Lance 1181.

The Lance 1181 is 4K plus on E rated tires.
Information on this should be readily available since tire pressure are critical to safety but I read differing info .

What is correct for front and rear ? The precious owner of my camper ran at 65 psi all the way around.

Any help with this will be very appreciated.

Thank you

From all of the tire industry info, that my take is to read the tire pressure rating on the tire sidewall and use this pressure setting for full weight rating. In my case my ! ton dually I run my rears @75lbs and my fronts @about 68lbs. I run with my rear air bags @ 45lbs. My Adventurer 106 DBS scales in about 4100 when ready to travel with 2-20lbs of propane and 1/4 tank of water. My 1 ton has a 56 gal. fuel tank so I run on the heavy side for the first half of my fuel load. Run what is printed on your tire sidewalls to be on the safe side.

Thanks very much. That's more info than I have been able to get from someone who has a comparable set truck/camper set up.
I had planned on 65 lbs in my air bags but will do whatever keeps me level.

This is new for me having a dually. Previously I ran at 80 lbs all around on my LB SRW F250 with my 3K Vanguard 9.5 with 65-70 in the airbags. And that worked very well.
Thanks again for your help.

The pressure I use is what the door sticker says. 60lbs front, 75lbs rear. My camper is a lot larger than yours and I also run 50lbs in the air bags.

Thank you. How did you decide on those air pressures respectively. Front/back/bags ?

Tire air pressure, like I stated is what was on the door sticker. Air bag pressure was decided by trial and error. Since I have an in cab air controller and built in pressure tank, adjusting the air pressure in the bags was easily done while driving down the road.

Thank you. Yes, I read that but my 2015 F350 dually door sticker info says 70psi front . 65 psi back .So, that's where I wasn't understanding.

The door sticker will vary depending upon what type tires your truck came with.
