Maximum as per owner manual is 57psi with the rear wheel off the ground. That is what I run with my CSC Friendship III.
I lifted the rear wheel, put max pressure, settled it down and checked the pressure fully loaded. I guess I will have to do it again 'cause can't remember what the number is. But the compressor had no problem getting me back to it... Need to write those things down...! lol.

I just air mine up on the ground and run it at about 100 PSI resting. been running it that way for years and it works good when riding 2 up and pulling the camper. it's a bit rough when I'm solo but I just leave it there all the time
