sunseekers have ride rite already installed. were are the air intake ports and what kind of compressor do you use and what psi do you use. can they be filled by regular tire inflators at gas stations.

On mine they are located in the compartments on either side immediately in front of the rear tires. They are covered with a little plastic cap. I would think any compressor would work that is capable of the needed psi. I have not done anything with mine at this point, just left at factory setting.

Air pressure is recommended between 5-100 psi. I think we run them in the 65 range from the factory. If there is any balance issue, we'll crank up one side and lower the other. Once you get the unit loaded the way you want, measure the back end...if its pretty level no need to adjust. If it's a bit off, you can adjust from there. Regular tire inflaters are fine.

I carry a compressor in the rear compartment so I can adjust for a few different things. And yes a normal compressor for your tires is all you need. I adjust mine to...is the camper level, am I going to be driving all day in 50 mph winds, and ride quality. My sunseeker is on a E450 chassis and I tow a 16 foot enclosed trailer that weighs about 5000 pounds. Even with just 5 pounds of air the RV still sits high in the back and rides like a lumber wagon. The only time I air them up to 65-75 pounds is on really windy days, ( every bump in the road will jar your teeth at this psi) other then that I leave them a 20 just so the bags don't get damaged. I would load it for camping and adjust them just so you are level or a little high in the rear. Using too much when not needed will start shaking screws loose.

One other thing, if you add air, remember that it is a fairly small bag, just use short burst of air and keep checking the pressure, don't hold the air chuck on there like your airing up a flat tire!

It seems really easy to over inflate them with my air compressor, I am going to try a bicycle pump the next time I air them up.
