What tyre pressures for my Ford Transit-based motorhome?

I have a Ford Transit-based Auto-Sleeper motorhome with Continental Vanco tyres. I have the axle loadings. Could you please help me with the correct tyre pressures? There is nothing in the handbook except "ask Ford". Ford says "ask Auto-Sleeper" who say "ask Ford". Micheldever Tyres say "ask either of the above". Continental offers no such information on their website and have not responded to my email.

Find out what laden weight the chassis is rated at and then find out how much the vehicle weighs fully laden (you can get it weighed for peanuts at any council recycling centre). Then look that up in the Transit charts and pressure your tyres accordingly.

Why is my new Honda Jazz EX CVT not remotely like the car you reviewed on your website? The ride in the back is atrocious.
I live in a country village and my nearest service station is about 15 minutes drive away. I find it almost impossible to check my tyre pressure when the tyres are cold (which is what I have been recommended)....
What's the most accurate tyre pressure gauge?
