    2 of my tires have low pressure

    Two of my tires have alarmed to indicate low air pressure. They are at 32psig. Now since Roger Goodell says there is no correlation in temperature vs. pressure I'm making an appointment today to get this fixed. This guy is the CEO of a mega billion dollar corporation and someone like that would not lie as he even ran tests to confirm nothing like this exists. BTW it was -8°F this morning.

    LOL.

    My tires haven't alarmed, but I check air pressure every drive and add when I get to under 38 cold. Every spring, I let a bit out to get it below 42 cold. I find 41 is about perfect in my truck, despite the 39 on the sticker. Tire wear was just about perfect running 41.

    Ask roger if he's ever seen this equation.....PV=nRT? BTW, the T is for temperature, the P is for pressure.

    I wish 'ol Roger was right as it would make setting up a race car - oh so much easier!

    OP- sounds like you truck is working PERFECTLY. Add air to the two tires that say 32psi and your low air pressure indicator will magically go away.

    I rather run over Roger and let him tell me how low my tire pressure felt.

    So if the stock ATS that came with my ed say 80psi on the sidewall, why does fca say 39 on door post. What about when I am pulling my tt? Will this kill my tires early?

    That pressure on the sidewall is the max cold inflation pressure. What is on the door jam is the pressure you inflate to.
    Being 80 psi, those are most likely Load Range "E" tires. Inflated to 80, one tire can practically carry as much weight as the axle is rated for.
    To simplify it, a tire of a particular size will support a certain amount of weight at a given inflation pressure.
