You never have to apologize for camping! That is what it's all about. Thanks for the info. I'll be ordering this week.

I can not comment on any characteristics of anything yet as I have just ordered mine. I didnt get the air bags to help with the sagging of the TT but to help while towing a boat or snowmobiles. And if it helps with porpoising all the better. I plan on using 10lbs the minimum while using the WDH until I find the sweet spot for porpoising, or should I say not porpoising.

I wouldn't start at the 10lb minimum imo as to not bottom out the bags.
My units both say 20 lb minimum but that's just what I have.

Good luck on the install.

Did our first trip with the air ride, when we left I had 7lb's in the shocks, and dropped a link in the wdh, big mistake, trailer swayed and ride was way to soft, I fought the set-up all the way to the campground. For the return trip, I put 10lb's in the shocks, and went back to 4 links in the wdh hanging, MUCH BETTER, felt like truck and camper were as one. Good ride, very smooth, think I have it figured out, and am alot more comfortable now, even ran 75 mph for a bit with no problems. 14 mpg, checked when I filled up the tank.

I use to get "HUMPED"---------

I used to get humped, but amazing what a little "AIR" will do
Of course I used the Firestone Air Springs.

You people "UP NORTH" start that "WARH" again, see what happens? DUNNNC, will be on our side, the "OLD COOT" is amazing in battle!

Just my opinion, but it would probably be even better with about 30#-40#. 10# is pretty low, my Air Rides will kick the compressor on @ 10#.

I must maintain 5 lb's as a minimum, I'll try more air to see if I can fine tune even more!! Thanks

And we don't need to be fighting each other, we better come together and get this Country back in order!!!

Depending on the roads its bearable. I just started to install a Firestone Rite ride system but who ever it was that packed my shipment put in 2 right side lower brackets so I have one side on and I'm waiting now a week for the lower left bracket to arrive.

Does anyone know how to adjust the air bag set up once installed. do I attach the trailer loaded and thne add air to level the rig or is this something that is done before trailer is hitched?
