Hi all. I know this question has been asked many, many times but I have managed to get myself confused reading old posts. What tyre pressure should I be running on in my CF2 motorhome? we are thinking of taking her on a long trip in the summer and I want them correct. I get the impression it should be 35 in front and 40/45 in rear but other posts say different? Please help. Andy

Tyre pressures at maximum weight (GVW) - 2830kg for your CF280 on 205R14C tyres.

For a 280 model it's likely that increased pressures will be needed to accommodate either or both axles exceeding the design weight: check on a weighbridge (total weight plus split between front and rear axles).

Maximum weight and pressure for each tyre should be marked on the tyre sidewall.

I had two new front tyres fitted last week, the fitter had set them to 60 lb pressure!
Felt like power steering on the drive home, but lowered to a more normal pressure back at the house.
