You know, if N is so good at not leaking and staying at same pressure, then why do we have to check our N- filled tires every trip and add air all the time? Just saying. My last 2 5ers had nitro at first and had to be topped off all the time.

I have a pancake compressor in the front basement area, which I plug into the inverter when needed - which is prior to EVERY time I hook up! Believe it or not. No, there's nothing wrong with the tires. I increase PSI in the TV tires according to the load, reduce it when we arrive. The load is pretty constant. DW can only get so much in this rig!

Your tires

I don't want to sound like a SA. But to not have checked your TP in so long, to me is ridiculous and unsafe.

Sounds like you have an air leak(s) if you need to add air each travel day.

N2 does leak out just slower than O2

Here is my post on N2. It may answer your questions.

And how do you determine whether to increase PSI according to load if the load is pretty constant? Why do you reduce it when you arrive???? Do you weight every time you move the trailer?
