According to Firestone, you can operate them from no less than 5psi to no more than 100. But that is simply on paper. So take it with a grain of salt.

Thanks for the replies, I will shoot for 50-60 for out next trip.

How often do you check the pressure during a trip?

If they are new I would check them in a day or 2 to make sure there are no leaks. After I established mine didn't leak I go 2 weeks to a month without checking them and they are about 3 pounds lower then were I had them.

I run mine at 70. But there's not much air in them. So temp swings seem to cause them to lose a bit. So mine were down from 70 to 55 after about a month.

I pump mine up to 80 them let a bit of air out with the tire gauge to get them exactly at 70. Just a little bit of air release and you lose 10 lbs.

This is a good point!!!!!
They are not large bags! So when you go to fill them do not hold the air on it like your filling a tire. Little burst is all you need!

Do you travel with a small portable compressor?

Seems that would be handy.

I carry a Portal Cable roofing compressor. It has a very quick recovery and has a 130 psi output so it's very capable of doing tires quickly also. I put it in my larger rear storage compartment then basically made a extension cord out of Romex wire that I pipe over to my outlet which was in a smaller compartment up front. This way I just have to fire up the generator and turn on the compressor without having to take it out of the RV.

At first I had 60psi on the driver side and 26psi on the passenger side. I could not get the gauge on the stem so I assumed it was 60psi from the factory the first couple trips When about the third trip it seemed the MH would sway more that it should in the wind and when trucks blow by you. So I removed the stem cap and the 2 washers and pulled the stem out as far as I could and checked the psi. That's when I discovered the 26psi. I filled to 60psi and this last weeks trip was a 100% improvement in GP driving and in the winds. Since can't get the stem out any further I will have to do the stem & washer removal trick to measure the psi and to fill. I think the stem is sealed with some filler or caulk.
