Trailair Air Pressure?

New to fifth wheels and new to Trailair....Only have pulled our 2014 Silverback 33 RL one time and that was around Nov 1.......Noticed this week the airbag is flat.....how long can one expect the airbag to maintain it's pressure or is this something that one has to constantly be airing up?

It should hold for several months. Air it up,take a spray bottle with soapy water in it and start searching for the leak

I have the identical rv and pin box. You HAVE AN ISSUE, leak😒. Picked up my 2015 last April and it has traveled several trips, been in warm climates and stored in freezing weather. Picked it up today, pulled it 62 miles and it looks as fresh as a pretty girl at a prom 😁. Never put an ounce of air in it yet. And NO, ain't flat or soft!!

I have the same trailair on my Cedar Creek and the most time I get before it goes soft is 1 month. The trailair was checked by the dealer twice and no leaks were found, I add air before each trip which is no big deal but it would be nice if it stayed inflated longer.

We have to top ours off each trip (usually about a month between trips so far)... 2-5 lbs of air so not too much.

I usually check mine each time I get ready to pull, and it normally requires a little air if it's been more than a week since I last pulled it. I keep a 12 volt compressor in the basement and it only takes a few seconds to get it back where it should be.

We have the TrailAir setup on our CC 38FL as well. I check it every time we hook up, but I haven't had to put any air in it for over a year....

I check mine before every trip, and it has always needed a little air added.

Mine loses air but it doesn't go flat. I put 80 psi in it and the fiver sits where it should according to the arrows.
