Cosco is starting to use the stuff in National City, Ca
they fill all of their new tires sold with it
and
have a free fill up for all to use
must be at least
a little someTHING good about it
because
why would they spend extra moniey on it

I'll still stick to standard air for now

I use good old cold Canadian air in mine and so far working OK for over one year. Just keep the pressure in check.

If you don't live where you get temp extremes, maybe you don't need or understand some of the benefits. We routinely hit temps in the -30's and yes Nitrogen does as advertised. The tire pressures stay within TPMS limits on my truck, regular air you can easily set off the TPMS alarms as soon as it hits -30 or so. Now that dosen't do much for a trailer that is setting all winter, but at least I know the tire pressure has stayed in tolerance all winter. Say what you want, if you haven't used it and don't live where there are reasons to use it don't knock it because until you do you are only offering an opinion not any facts.

Since our air is colder, the latest exchange rate is 1.01 per psi.....good one

Once you put regular air into them to top up - any Nitrogen benefit (if any were there to start with) is gone.

Imo a tire with no leaks shouldn't have to be topped off.
If its low there's a leak ie valve stem,bead,nail or screw.
tires just don't wick enough air to be noticed.
I've seen hundreds of tires leaking through the bead.
aluminium rims are notorious for this!
and are very hard leaks to find!

Forest river manufacturing and the dealer sent my 2012 out the door with 40 to 41 lbs pressure in all 5 tires. In 2000 miles I now have 4 destroyed tires and the Forest river warranty office for Salem appears to be dodging calls. Not a great start to the season.

Your right not a good start.

Did your dealer not pdi your camper to not notice the tire pressure?
What is the correct tire pressure for your tires?

50 psi is what is calls for max. The axles were measured and then remeasured and they are out 1/4 inch at one or two locations but not enough to cause the tires to wear like this.
I was also told that nitrogen filled tires will not loose air pressure as fast as regular air.
I'm not hoping to hijack a thread... but does anyone recommend a Tire Pressure Sensor Monitoring system and if so what brand and location to order from - since we are talking about tire pressures being questioned.
Safety Second!
