Thanks for the info!
If you have the small plastic tank, yes you can add or remove air from the tank.The small plastic tank is not designed as a reservoir or reserve capacity of water in the system. It is designed to stop the rapid cycling of the water pump and allow for some expansion of water when the hot water tank is first turned on. The factory set pressure is designed to work with the shurflo water pump in your RV to prevent short cycling of the pump. I have never had to add or remove air from the accumulator tank in my RV. I have used the same tank in my two previous rv's, over the last 20 years.
