From the Firestone manual on the air bags:
Maximum pressure - 100 psi and a minimum of 20 psi.
Other information found - as a general rule, the air bags will support approximately 40 lbs for each psi. As weight is added to the vehicle the air bags become an active part of the suspension system. As more pressure is added to the air bags, they will support more weight thereby reducing sway and handling problems.
The location of the fill port is as Bill stated, the first compartment behind
the rear axle on each side of the MH. I suggest checking with an accurate gauge. The bags don't take a lot of air so I adjust mine with a air chuck/tire gauge/air control valve all in one unit that way I can control the air going in and monitor the pressure as it fills the bags. I have a unit like this: Campbell Hausfeld MP6000 Tire Inflator with Gauge - Amazon.com
