When I added a stacked washer dryer (240 lbs) in front of my Columbus my F250 sagged about 3-4 inches. It was very noticeable. 50 psi to level it now that I have added air bags.

Installed the Ride Rites on my truck today. What psi do you have in them when your not towing? Manual says 5 psi, but I was wondering if those who have had them a while do something different?

I leave mine around 10 because the compressor comes on @ 5 and if you hit a bump, it will cycle and at 10 it doesn't.

I run my Air Lifts at 11psi unloaded on my 2011 F350. When loaded I like playing with the wireless remote and adjusting the psi. I now run it around 50-60psi and like the ride. Dont even know its behind towing it. Recently installed new Rancho 9000XL adjustable shocks and now will have to recalculate as I have not towed with the new shocks. Instead of the washer/dryer in the front space I have a bachelor deep freeze there which works great.

Thanks for the input, I set them at 10psi this afternoon. I have yet to see how they do but will be hooking up Friday and camping this upcoming weekend. Looking forward to seeing how they perform.

Thanks Cajun, seeing how we have the same 5'er, I was wondering what you set them at. I'll try 40 first and see, thanks.

I run mine at 10 psi because I have a 200 lb cap on the back, I run 40 when pulling the TT.
