I have a Jayco Dove with factory-fitted tyres.
What pressure should I be running them at ideally?
Thank you.

Have a look inside the van nera the seating.

It should be there somewhere.

I run our 13' star craft at 35 psi.

hi garytree
if you lower your tyre pressures because of the rough conditions then lower your speed as well it works in conjunction with each other
experience in reading the conditions with a common sense factor as you go is par for the course and will come to you
conditions can vary and can change several times in one long days driving
as they say adjust to the existing conditions and you should have an enjoyable drive

Hi Mark from Ballina, got Dove Outback, is yours road or Outback? Run psi according to roads, makes a big difference, smooth hwy @ 35..get good fuel econ, ruff tar @ 30, stops bounce, dirt with corros down to 25 stops internals shaking to bits....remember to reinflate to conditions.

We run around 33psi onroad, and then as conditions call for, example the Anne Beadell 14psi. but the speed was also way down to about 25 to 30 kph.

Blaze, nice right up in the 4x4 magazine of your trip.

Just goes to show you can take most trailers, if you slow down, drop pressures and be sensible. Hard core trailers have their own problems, especially when driven by drivers that think their trailers are invincible.

It was 4x4 Australia magazine. It arrived on Thursday in the mail. Page 100 Annie's Lane. Good pics too. A big shot of you and the jayco on page 101.

Wow Bushy, Thats so long ago I submitted this one, didn't think they would ever use it. I just went and grapped it and to a look at it, since then we have also done the Sandy Blight without camper and am also heading out into Madigans in 3 weeks, so there are articles in the works on both of these with SBT already submitted.

Cheers
