    Tyre pressures

    Can anyone tell us where/how we can check the tyre pressures on our new campervan, and top up with air? Garages around us don't seem to have sufficiently powerful equipment.

    What pressures are you trying to put in?

    Please give more detail on what Motorhome you have. I think your pressures might be way too high (for at least one of the axles).

    We have a Globecar Roadscout R. It's just possible my partner may be remembering the exact pressures incorrectly (I don't have the handbook here), but the question still stands, as to where we can get the pressures checked and the tyres topped up.

    I put 70psi about 5 bar in the rear and 50 or so in the front of mine, I have no issues with Sainsburys locally it goes a lot higher.

    I cannot see how we can help with the 'where' because we don't know where you are.

    You say that you cannot find an air pump with a high enough pressure (a common problem), so why not buy your own tyre inflator. Google using 'Ring 12 volt tyre inflater', they make a range of them.

    I top up the tyres on our Campscout at Sainsbury's, can't remember what the notice says is maximum, but we go over that with no problems, but then ours is in 60's psi, not 70's.

    Heres a link to tyre page in Fiat Ducato owners manual. You'll have to check to see if it's the right model though.

    I expect they have but are restricting the pressure to the public air line. We did this after someone burst their tyre by over inflating it and tried to blamed us. So ask in the garage to see if they will do it for you
