Nope. It's doing just fine so I ain't gonna mess with it.

So you ride around with them filled all the time? What PSI do you keep them at?

Not filled all the time. Talked to AirLift about the pressures and they say the minimum pressure is 5 psi but they recommend 10 psi. I use 10 and don't notice any change in ride quality. Five psi won't quite stop the wheel hopping problem but 10 does. Before I hook up the TT I run them up to 35 psi.

Got surprised this winter a few times when I first turned on the ignition when the outside air temperature was about 20. Startled me a little when the compressor kicked on (it is a little on the loud side).

Oh o.k. I thought you were riding around with them @ high pressure. That can make a rough ride, at least on mine it does. I keep them @ 5psi unless I have a load on. Even 10psi is a little jarring on my f350 dually.

The dealer got most of my problems fixed Friday and Saturday. The couch slide and the safety recall being the biggest things. The service guy even fixed the fridge switch. He noticed it never shut off and it bothered him while he was working on the glass door. He said the switch was "stuck". I wondered why it would never shut off but when I asked on the forums I was told it was auto shut off. If you press the button it is supposed to shut off. If it doesn't he showed me the screws to remove to take the switch box off and "wiggle" the switch to get it unstuck. Overall the service guy did an awesome job in the time that he had to fix all the warranty requests I had.
This was also my first tow with the Andersen Ultimate Aluminum fifth wheel hitch. Not very difficult to hook at all. The ride was very smooth. I do want to look into a air king pin to help reduce rough road jumping on the highway. On I-80 there where a few spots where the highway was bouncy. It got very annoying and I believe a better king pin would help reduce that vibration. The really nice thing is that when I store the camper I just loosen 3 bolts then remove the hitch (32 lbs) and put it into the garage of the camper.

Glad to hear that you got everything fixed. I had a leak in my garage/ living room ( see another thread that I started) . I believe that it is fixed now.

LB TN I saw that. I need to look at your pictures closer (had jury duty this week) to make sure I don't have the same issue in mine.
Just curious but I noticed the exhaust on the truck is louder when I have the camper hooked up. I assume this is normal? I mainly noticed it when slowing down. When I let my foot off the gas and let the engine do the braking. It was louder, only way I can think to describe it.
Also LB TN we are planning a trip to Deals Gap. We will be coming through TN in Late July early August.

As far as your truck to me that all sounds normal. It's what they call turbo/ exhaust braking when slowing down it should sound like a big rig, hopefully that makes sense.
