Sadly a teflon lube plate does absolutely nothing for the pin itself. You must still grease the pin and hitch jaws. Otherwise you will be spending a lot of mony replacing worn out parts. The teflon disc only helps twisting motion between the pin box and hitch head.

Air pressure? Depends on pin weight. You go by the arrow. I usually start out at 80PSI on a decently warm day.

Do you happen to know the measurement from bed to pin plate with plate level?

Many of these lose air. Folks get upset with them. I learned something this year. The actual zerk where air is put in is screwed in. A) the threads on that zerk device on SOME of these units was put in at a slight crossthread, and it loses air that way. Take all air out, take it out, put on teflon tape and put it in correctly........and B) the pin inside the zerk (the one that you push to let air in and out, the tiny protrusion, I'm sure it has a name ??) is sometimes not 'set' correct. Again, let all air out and fiddle with it to ensure it's straight up and down, and reput in air.

I have NOT TRIED this, but heard it from more than one source.
