Height diff btwn inflated and deflated

Anyone know about how much a Berky should rise when the airbags inflate? It looks on mine to be only about 3 inches. That sound about right??

Our 2011 Bershire 390RB-60 rises about 4". WHen deflated the body is about even with the top of the tire, when inflated my full hand gauges the clearance between the top of the tire and the body.

I would say 3-4 inches on mine. I haven't measured it. You have to much time on your hands Boo. I could ship one of these grand kids age 3 and age 7 months we are watching
to help get your mind off the MH Ha! We have had them since Tuesday night. Their Mom and Dad come home at 7 tonight.

3 1/2 to 4 inches sounds about right for ours.

Well, I thank you all for the answers. I DO have plenty of time on my hands; my biggest decision each day is when to take a nap!!

And enjoy those ruggers while they're not in school yet. Mine were FANTASTIC until that happened. Once they got around other kids, they became little monsters! Sometimes I can't wait to get rid of them; smart mouth, backtalk, etc. Hopefully, YMMV.

Can you drive the rig deflated just to fit in barn? My barn is 12 ft and need to see if I can squeeze under the door? Berkshires are 12'2" correct?

Thanks
Bill

If it doesn't have concrete floor, dig some trenches or deflate the tires

So, my dealer suggested to me to put in a 'dump valve' to release the air bag air so that I could fit into my barn. Fortunately, my tight spots were near the edges of the RV and not the centerline where the AC units are located (thank goodness they used scissor trusses!), so I never had to do that. According to what I have heard it should be possible, you just can't turn the wheel at all and if there is a threshold to 'bump' over, that might cause rubbing.
