Well mine are AirLift 5000 Ultimate, so could be different, but as you can see it is 5 psig for the Ultimates.

Bags work great. Took the 5er to Talladega from North Florida. Ride was great. Now if I can figure out to pass gas stations I would be ok.

Hi Folks,
I installed a set of Airbags to mt Ford F250 7.3Litre a couple of years ago to help the ride of my Flagstaff Super Lite.

Our roads out here are very rough so road shock was a problem, i found over time and various settings that 25 psi loaded and 10 psi when 5th Wheeler was off suits my application.

I also fitted a air bag assisted hitch now it rides just great.

Cheers

Trev Williamson

Ride-rite air helpers

My new Class C came with the Ride-rite air helpers. Since it was a bouncy ride, a month ago, I inflated them (manually, no compressor built in) to 80 and the ride was much better. 6 weeks went by, on pre-check for this weekend both were down to 35. I haven't checked them and fittings with soapy water for leaks yet, however, if I find no leaks, is that air loss typical?

Also, I know they're easy to inflate. Is adding a compressor a worth-while option or just a waste of $?

Thanks.

I haven't had any trouble with my vehicle mounted airbags loosing pressure, however i did have a problem with my air bag on my Air Ride hitch on the Van, Recommended pressure for my application was 60psi which was good however after 2 days the pressure was down to 40 psi, the dealer removed the airbag to find a small pin hole in the bag, replacement airbag works great, some usual problems is airline valves need rechecking for tightness, poor fitting hoses or pin holes in Bags,
Hope this helps
Cheers
Trev
