Thanks for all your responses. I put about 300 miles on today with the fresh water tank full and most of our camping gear in the camper. It rode much smoother than when empty but was still a bit squirrely on the highway with side to side motion. My tires were about 10psi under what the label says on the doorframe so I'm going to make sure they are set to specification then I'm going to try bumping the air bags to 60 or 65psi and see how that rides. I remember when I was a kid I had a 67 Ford Fairlane with air shocks on it. Used to pump em way up to raise the rear of the car so I know what you mean about ride height!

What I would say to you is get a small 12v air compressor and play with different pressures as you are out camping. Find out what works best at the load level you have at that time, for me 65 psi works good for the weight I carry in my 3051s any higher and ride becomes very hard.Good luck .

60 seams about right for us,,, 2013 Sunseeker 2500TS,,, Ford V10,,,
You might want to start high,,, and work your way down,,, it is a lot easer to let some air out,,, than to increase it,,, unless you carry an air compressor !!!
I have found you will have to check them often,,,
they seam to loose pressure a lot !!!

Thanks again! I just bought a lightweight portable 3 gal/100psi compressor from Harbor Freight....$39 with a coupon! I tried it out around the house with a small air nailer for a couple jobs and it works great. It weighs about 20 lbs so it's easy to carry but big enough that it's got decent enough pressure to take care of the tires as well as the air bags.
