Based on my work at Boeing (landing gear and brakes) I'd make the following point. I looked into about 150 in-flight tire burst incidents.

Unless your RV is powerful enough to accelerate to 150 mph in about 2 miles with a dragging brake, and can then fold its wheels into an enclosed box, you don't need to waste your money on nitrogen. If you can get it for free, it has a few very minor advantages.

When parking for long stays you should park on plastic mats, helps save tiers.

I had bad gas cramps the other day and tried to add air but I couldn't find a fitting anywhere.

Dry nitrogen servicing is required on aircraft tires for the following reasons...
1. It's dry!
2. Nitrogen does NOT support combustion!
3. Required by aircraft manufacture's Approved (FAA, EASA, etc.) Technical Publications!

For auto/truck/trailer use... what a scam!

I want to meet somebody who uses hydrogen gas. I hear it's really inexpensive. Or helium which is much more expensive but might make the trailer lighter..

Of course, the downside with a hydrogen is your trailer will explode, but that's just a little quicker way to get rid of it than carrying hundred pound bottles of propane inside

Take everything too seriously, please do not put hydrogen or helium in your tires
