Auto-sleeper Symphony

Hi. Still getting to grips with my new but OLD, 21 years motorhome?


Query over the correct tyre pressures for my Symphony.
On a Peugeot Boxer Van.
Label on door jam says 43psi for the tyres fitted. Is this for the original van or relates to the heavier converted motorhome?

But following a recent service, the garage put 61. when queried they said that was correct for the type of van and load carried?
Anyone with a similar vehicle, can advise what is correct?dh
Checked with AS specialist and tyre fitter. All think higher than 43 is best but nobody can guarantee what is correct?
Help please?

43psi sounds low for anything bigger than a car , I run around 55-60psi, I tend to go on the look of the tyre, a light but not too big bulge at the bottom indicates on flat ground if they're more or less right, not worried about mileage of the tyres as they will never get very high on a MoHo, I only check pressures if one looks lower than the other three.

Cheers Kev.
Yes the back axle tyres look low now i have lowered them from 61 to 43.
Yes 43 do sound more like a car.
BUT cannot understand why there is a label inside door jam, maybe the original but in good condition, saying 43?
Surely Auto-sleepers would have replaced and updated when they converted the van?


Expecting to pump them up to above 56 later unless get more accurate advice. Thanks again. Min

Yes, you'd think they would add their own label, but they don't on any van we've had.

Get the vehicle weighed.

Then get in touch with the tyre manufacturers, let them know your front and rear axle weights and let them advise what is safe.

If you simply go by the Maximum axle weights the chart will give you a good guide...even though it may well be different tyre manufacturers.

PS. Your 43PSI may well be correct if it's a Motorhome manufacturers plate?
PSS. Google for more charts!
