Firestone riderite Air suspension

What is the correct pressure to be set at? I have a 2013 Forest River Sun Seeker 3010DS. E-450 V-10.

What ever it takes to get the results you want. Mine has a leveling valve on the axle so it adjusts itself. I have no idea how much air it CAN put in the bags to keep the truck level,but I DO know that it is possible to seriously overload the truck and never know it with my system. When the truck is mt I would guess there isnt much in them because I can indent them with my finger if I poke at them. When the trailer is hooked up they feel rock hard to the touch.

The air bags can be adjusted between 5 and 100 psi. Typically start at about 50-60 psi and adjust as needed to find the ride you like. Depends on many factors like load, whether or not you have a toad, etc. Higher pressure will be a little stiffer ride, which can help in crosswinds or with the rush of passing trucks.

When adding air, be careful. It takes very little. I use a tire inflator rather than a compressor to make sure not to overfill. They do tend to leak a little over time, so check at the beginning of each trip.

Trial and error will find the best for you. I use 65 psi with a full load and no toad.

The Correct pressure is Self Imposed,but it is stated by Fac. that you should Always have 15 PSI in the bags,not Over 100 PSI Youroo!!
