3011 DS 2017 air bags

Does any one know the proper air pressure for the rear air bags? I haven't been able to find anything on this.
Thanks

I have the sister rv, 3010DS. Never run them with less then 10psi, or max of 100psi, they will get ruined. I run mine at 60-75psi. You just start at one point, then adjust up or down, until you get the ride you like. They do loose air pressure slowly, this is normal. I check mine every couple of days while traveling, when parked, I check every other week, then when getting ready to roll. I have the sheet showing this.
Also, be careful, they pressuize really fast, use short bursts.

I also recently used the airbags to provide some additional clearance for the rear end when backing into a camp site with a larger apron incline. Raising the PSI from the normal 60-65 to 90+ gave me just enough room to avoid scraping.

Basically, adjust psi until you get the best ride.

I installed a wireless controlled compressor which allows me to change the bag pressure while driving. Seems like 65 psi works best for me.

Added benefit is the compressor always keeps the desired setting. In the winter I sometimes hear the compressor start up when applying power to the MH, and in the summer when it gets really hot I’ll hear air being released on power up.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
