Air Ride PSI?

Just got the trailer and never had air rides before. When I checked them, there was no air in them at all. I put 60psi in one and then the other wouldn't take any air at all. Fortunately I had a Schrader valve core laying around and when I changed out the core it took air so I put 60 psi in that side as well. Hopefully, tomorrow when I check them they both will still have 60 psi in them.

The question is, what is a good pressure for these to start with? I guess everyone is a little different but I thought it would be good to hit the average to start.

Thanks!

I have tried 60 PSI helped a bit but with a full load wife kids water dog and the kitchen sink I run around the 75 to 80 range. It all depends on your unit the load and the type of ride you are looking for.

I was running 50 but found 70 to handle the hard bumps better.

I started at 50 and ended up at 70. The load dictated the change. Rides great and helps reduce body roll. The airbags are like bicycle tires in that they require airing up frequently. So frequently that I am installing an onboard compressor with dual switch and gauges up front so I can just push the button to adjust them.

Here is a link to the February discussion:

I think the airbag pressure is a minimum of 10lbs and maximum of 90 lbs.

I did a test while driving a three hour trip. All on non-interstate roads. I have the remote compressor so was able to change the pressure while driving. I varied the pressure from 25 to 95 psi. Results....I didn’t see any difference.

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.
