Firestone ride rite air bags

Guys I need help. I just brought home my new 2020 Sunseeker 3050s. I decided to check the air pressure in the air bags because I was bouncing everywhere on the way home from the dealer. The passenger side showed 13.5 pounds. So I put 55 pounds in. The driver side read 13.2 pounds. When I tried to put air in it, it would not take it. I tried multiple times with no avail. So I went back to the passenger side to bleed that down to the same as the drivers side. I mistakenly bled it to 5 lbs. when I tried to add air that bag would not take it. I am mildly upset as you can imagine. I called the dealer and they said bring it back but it is three hours away. I am trying to find a local dealer to do the warranty work. Sure would be nice if someone has a magical solution!

You will be able to air it up. Keep trying. You could even try a bicycle pump. I would settle on 50 psi for starters.

Sometimes certain air chucks and certain Shrader valves don't play well together. The chuck pin may not be adequately depressing the valve pin. You might try a different air chuck or air pump to see if you can get air into the bags.
