Air bags

Could some of you please tell me what weights you run your airbags on your trucks. The dealer told us around 60lb., but a couple people have said they run no more than 30????
We have a 2009 3/4 ton Chev 4x4 (gas) and are pulling a 2009 31ft Sabre REDS.

Looking to add an Air Lift 1000 to my Odyssey...according their installation instructions the minimum is 5PSI and the maximum is 35PSI for that model.

Is the link to punch in your vehicle type, model, year and it will say what products are available for the type.

If a self install, would love to hear how easy it was to complete.

All the best.

I have Firestone air bags on my F250. Per instructions I run 5 lbs unloaded. When I connect my 5th wheel it automatically goes to 20 lbs. I measured the hight of my bed before and after connecting. 20 lbs to 30 lbs is about right. I weigh that against ride and stay between 20 and 25 lbs.

I'm thinking 60 psi would be the max.

On my 1/2 ton. I run 10 psi empty or loaded. Rides great and handles well. Try starting at 30 psi and go up or down as needed.
