Congratulations on getting off the bandwagon.

The machine cost too much to replace? Ripping folks off, selling something we all have freely available already, should have paid for that thing many times over.

Hey Brian, we all still like you without nitrogen. Come here as often as you are able.

That is what my Tire Dealer said. A name brand required them to use nitrogen and they never did charge for it at the tire dealer. My ford dealer gives N for free too. I won't pay for it.

Will we see you at Goshen or Mayberry? Going to both this year!

Osmosis will occur with Nitrogen as well as air, just not as quickly. It's probably not even a noticeable difference to anybody.

Nitrogen in the tires seems to have been a passing fad in my area. For a couple of years every tire store in my area sold nitrogen. Today you can’t find a tire store in my area that still carries it.

Ever since I put new air-filled tires on the trailer last May I have to add a couple of pounds of pressure to the tires when it sits for two weeks or more. The first three years I owned the Silverback every time I checked the nitrogen filled tires before a trip they were at the correct pressure. Near the end of our 3rd season I finally had to start adding air every so often.

We’re going into our 13th season owning a fifth wheel and I have always run with whatever tires came with the trailer and we’ve never had a problem. This kind of flies in the face of those who are always so quick to tell you to get rid of those “China bombs” that came with the trailer.

My strategy has always been to replace the tires after 4 seasons or 25,000 miles, which ever came first.

I think it's a scam, I put air in my nitrogen truck tires and air in my nitrogen trailer tires.

If temperature doesn't affect nitrogen why do I have to touch them?
