I'm intrigued by the airbags but I haven't seen a need for them. If I was pulling a fiver, sure... but while airbags will make your truck level while hooked up to a TT, they do nothing to redistribute weight. That's the purpose of a WDH.

What are you folks using them for?

Well for me first of all I agree about the wdh and it's purpose. That put aside the reason I had them put on my f-150 is to; (1. Give the appearance that the TT and truck lookd level and they did. (2. And I kinda think it did shift some weight, ever how little, toward the front of the truck. (3. Most it important it does take some of the stress off suspension systems in the back and BEST of all it made me feel better. Keeper in the wind my friend..

The air bags help with the suspension. Most suspensions are progressive so they start off soft then stiffen with more compression. Air bags definitely help the ride factor.

I couldn't function without mine. I love the remote and change-on-the-fly functionality too.

I keep hearing they only level, but they don't affect the actual ride. Yes, they do affect the ride, or mine do. I have to crank mine up too high, IMHO, to make them work best while trailering, but they really help.....and it's obvious when I 'forget' to crank it up after hooking up.

A must have with a 5th wheel. The wireless compressor...priceless. IMO.

If your under the 100psi then your not way too high lol

My last couple of trips I've had to air up to around 60 - 70 psi. I used to be good at 40 - 50. I think my shocks may be shot. They are after all only 6 years old (70K miles).

And yes, with a 5th wheel, it certainly helps with the ride. Especially in the concrete jungle. Around Houston, I still have to slow down on some particularly bad stretches of concrete, but aired up to 60 or so psi, The ride is much less bouncy/jouncy.

Installed on my 2014 Ram 3500 dually. Difference in ride awsome. What helps to is the Trailair on 5th wheel pin box. Good luck
