Brilliant work by everyone who's continued perseverence has got us this far!!!

By coincidence, just after I read the most recent posts I opened the September 2020 edit of MMM and there was a Technical Question - "What is the correct tyre pressure for my motorhome?".

There was a full page devoted to this question and a couple of choice comments caught my eye:

".... a tyre industry expert I have discussed this with is firmly of the belief that tyres should be inflated to the pressure that is appropriate for the load being carried  rather than a blanket tyre pressure...."

'I keep my tyre pressures down from the maximum as my fully loaded weigh bridge weights are so much lower than the vehicle maximum permitted axle weights."

He also talks about uneven loading of the weights on the wheel and suggests a 10% safety factor from the tyre manufacturers recommended settings to compensate for this.

What struck me about this is that this answer was pretty much is full agreement with everything that has been said in this forum.

With this I agree with Caraman that we need to involve a number of parties to get Peugeot to budge from their current stance. I would suggest, however, that if we could produce a reasoned argument in a pro forma that can be sent by letter / email, then everyone can then send them. I believe they will sit up and listen (yes I'm an optimist at heart) if large numbers express a concern.

It would be interesting to know who the 'industry expert' referred to in the MMM article is. If this person is really an expert, they might be interested in our dilemma and willing to help with facts and data?

hi I don’t know if this will help as I retired as Peugeot technical consultant a few years now and things might not be the same.
I was consultant technical engineer and dealt with all technical problems in the field the department I worked in was THE PEUGEOT PRODUCT SERVICE DEPT and my boss with the French engineers on all these sort of Problems the French dept was called the Platform . Perhaps a e mail to Peugeot Coventry requesting a meeting with the manager Product Service might be worth trying . The Labels inside the door pillars were something we dealt with while I was working there I cannot not remember the outcome I dealt with the Peugeot 205/206/306/405/605/406/Express/Boxer / 505/607 and had constant contact with the French Platform
