What pressure do you have in yours when towing?

Thanks

If i am using the WDBars the bags are 35 - 40psi

If not using the Bars then 50 - 55psi

what ever works for you and the weight in the truck & draw bar.

Hi Mum,

I only recently installed mine and find that I only need 25lb pressure with the van on. (Van ball weight is around 300kg.)

Hi Motherhen

We run 60 to 70 psi but we have a canopy, loader, boat, outboard ,big generator, fridge and other gear in the truck and little bulldog and 3 jerry cans on the front of the van.

The pressure you run is all relative the amount of gear you carry and your tow ball weight if you are light you need less pressure.

remember the airbags reduce load on the springs and the bounce on the shocks thus reducing wear on those components.

Best wishes.

Hey Motherhen

On the tarmac upto 50psi with WDH bars. On dirt roads down to 20psi. If you have too much pressure in on dirt roads you'll end up causing a lot of vibration and damage/
