    Trailer Tire PSI when towing W/O a boat

    I have to pick up a new Ranger trailer about 350 miles away. What pressure should I adjust the tires to in order to minimize trailer bounce while it is unloaded? Most of the driving will be at freeway speeds.
    Thanks in advance for the input.

    How many axles and what is normal tire pressure? I’d probably start about 10 pounds low.

    The trailer is a tandem axle and calls for 45 psi in the tires.
    Just to clarify, I would be towing the trailer without the boat.

    You maybe fine at 45 psi but if it seems to bounce a lot, lower it about 10 psi as stated above. Donít go too low.
