E rated filled to 75 psi all around. Airbags at 65lbs.

I run the E tires at 75 and my airbags 35 - 40. I had tried the airbags with as much as 70# in them, anything above 50# felt like the axel was bolted to the frame, no give at all. I generally run the bags at 30# unless on some bad roads.

Same here. I always ran at 35lbs on the airbags, but with this bad stretch of road I up'd the bags to 65 and it helped, but did not resolve it by any means...

Not much would resolve I-10 in Louisiana except major reconstruction, don't know about SC, had not been through there since late 60's. My next trip that would take me thru LA I think I will try going around that state because of there roads

Yep. I have a hard time inviting rvers to LA because of the bad highways. Low bid projects I guess.

Joe,
Was out by the cat scales today and got the Tundra weighed. Had a full tank of fuel, DW, our two dogs, tools and most of what we carry in the truck when ready to camp. Also the hitch is in the bed of the truck. Here is my weight ticket. Looks like I'm running a bit heavier than what I seen on your ticket. First chance I get I'll get the RV weighed

You really can't believe anything the manufacturer says about pin weight...
