Folks with airbags

First real trip with airbags.
Ride seems bouncy to me.
Trailer is towing level with 45 pounds in them.
Will taking them down to say 35 pounds feel better?

Try it. About the only way you will know with your equipment.

45lbs seems like a lot of pressure. Especially if your WDH is already set up correctly. Id start low and work my way up to find the best ride/stability. Do 20, 30 etc. its very subjective, so just experiment.

I have 5K LoadLifter coming in Thursday, with my setup I figure around 25 to 30 psi towing my 5th wheel. Yeah but 45 psi seem to be too high.

I have 5K Air Lift on my F250. I pull a 33 foot 5th wheel and run about 25 pounds in my bags.

I installed air bags in my old truck as it aged the suspension got softer. I recall I tried a bunch of pressures until I found something I liked. I recommend writing down the pressures and your thoughts about the ride and handling, until you settle on a pressure you like.
