Our 2012 Jayco Sterling has all the tyre information (size, pressure etc) on the VIN plate in the front boot.

Like the Jayco vans manufactured fronm july1989 must have a tyre placard and it will usually form part of the Vans VIN Plate.
Hower the information re: pressure is completely usless as it's the pressure for the van in its TARE condition.
Higher presurers will be required when the van is loaded.
You'll need to know the weight on the wheels (Tyres) when the van is loaded and then talk to your tyre retailer.
Better to have a little to much pressure than not enough.
i.e. better to wear them out than blow them out.

would the tyre preasures on the sidewall of the tyre be the same as whats recomended by the manufacturer because they should fit tyres that should suit that van?

The tyre pressure on the sidewall is the maximum rated pressure

I had a talk with a Melb chassie manufacture a couple of weeks ago and he told me to run the pressure about 5 PSI lower than the max. printed on the side of the tyre. this allows for the increase in pressure when the tyre has warmed up. He said the suspension then will do it's job properly.
My tyres are Cooper ATR LT, I was running at about 46 PSI, now running then around 72 PSI, max is 80 PSI

Mate, Do yourself a favor and contact Coopers HQ in Qld. I also run Coopers -- Patrol on Sealed road 36 psi max, Dirt, never more than 26 psi , sometimes below 20psi . KK camper, 26 and 18 psi on dirt, 6.4 m caravan 34 psi. There is no need to pump tyres to the max. Let them assist the suspension to get the best ride. I do not have any probs with Coopers for this very reason.

Keep it the same as your vehicle.

ry this. On your tyres it will have marked what the maximum load at a set pressure the tyre can take. Get the loaded weight of your van and devide it by 4 (or two depending on how many wheels your van has. Them work out what percentage that weight is compared to the max. weight the tyre is rated at (the weight on the side wall) Adjust the pressure to the same percentage. You then then should be in the ball aprk. Set the tyres at that pressure then go for a drive to get the tyres fairly hot, take the pressure again, if it has risen by more tha 4psi wait for the tyres to cool then increase your pressure by 2psi and do the test again.
See how you go.
cheers

As stated above the tyre placard is usually incorportated onto the vans VIN Plate.
The cold pressure shown on the placard is for the weight on the tyes in the vans TARE condition (Unladen, no water or gas etc).
Any ball weight shown on the Vin plate is for the TARE condition also.
