trailair air pressure

I picked up my 36ckts with the trailair installed and it really made the tow home alot smoother than before.I checked air pressure and dealer has 100lbs of pressure in it.Heading to Va in a couple of weeks i'm going to lower to 85 lbs and try that.Anyone using a Fini 1.5 hp 1.2 gallon air compressor from Lowes?They claim 135lbs of pressure.

New Traiair installed on a Spartan 5th wheel first trip air adjusted to proper pressure by dealer after about 350miles no more pressure in it, stop at garage put more air to proper pressure and went another 300 miles and was down again put more air and did another 300 miles and again no more pressure.guess the ballon need to be replace and hope the warranty is more than 12 hours ......have 1inche and a half from cap in front and 2 inches and a quarter in rear of trailair attachement is that of seem to be wrong installation ???

Glad to hear it was EZ fix! Love that pin box!! Makes towing sooooo much smoother. Hardly anything moves on and around 5er. Would consider it the number one best choice we made!
( Factory installed).

It only bolts on one way. The bolt holes won't line up if it's off. Normal for it to slope. It moves up and down on a pivot at the rear.

You mean that it is normal that the front be closer to front cap and damage the gelcoat....weird

I've played with the pressure on mine and 75# is about right for out load. Then after adding 300#s of Solar batteries to the front storage I had to adjust the pressure. So you'll need to play with the pressure and check it every few times before going out on a trip. The pressure changes with altitude, weight, outside air temp. You really don't have to use a gauge though just air it up til it just raises to the top of the arrow and stop. If to much air in it then it won't articulate up and down so it won't absorb the shock so to much is bad just like no air in it is bad. When you hit a bump it should flex and absorb the shock of the bump. You can watch it from your rear view mirror. We have the Trailaire pen box along with the Trailaire axles and it is a very smooth ride.
