5th Airborne

Just replaced the original pin box on my 2017 Cedar Creek 36CKTL with a 5th Airborne pin box with the air bag and shock in the pin. Haven't been anywhere yet, but leaving mid Sept from Oregon and heading to Nashville, TN. Not sure how much air to put in the air bag. Pin weight is apprx 3200 pounds. Anyone have any experience with the 5th Airborne? Thanks in advance.
And if anyone needs an original 18k Lippert pin box, and you are near Oregon, it's yours for the taking!

Have had a 5th Airborne on my Silverback for almost 4 years … I really like it. I run around 80 - 90 psi in mine. (that's with fiver sitting on the truck. It's less with fiver lifted off the truck due to weight taken off hitch.) I also moved the puck back one hole.

Thanks, Dieselguy. That's just where I was going to put it. I'll set the 5'er on the truck and then pump up the air bag to 90 psi. And due to the heavier than usual pin weight, I have already moved the puck back one hole. Hopefully this will take some of the chucking and bouncing off the truck.
