Nitrogen tires

Our HW192 came with nitrogen-filled tires. I have no clue how to maintain them. Do they lose air? And if so, do you just pull up to an air pump at the convenience store and fill them, or do you have to go find nitrogen somewhere?

Air is 78% nitrogen- so just add air when necessary. I recommend getting a small 12V pump as opposed to paying for air at filling stations. You might need air at a campground sometime or have another emergency use.

This has been beaten to death in many other threads.......... but you can play extra and find nitrogen or you can just forget about it and add air when needed.

You will get all kinds of opinions. I see no benefit to nitrogen in trailer or car tires.

I think the manufacturers think that they can use POS tires and fill them with nitrogen and they'll be just as good.
