Had those on our Forest River SunSeeker. Wasn't impressed other than they help level out the coach when it is loaded to full capacity. The ride pretty much remained the same when they were inflated to 75 PSI as they did when they were inflated to 100 psi. That coach did not have leveling jacks so the next point does not apply.

Did you install a compressor and dump valve for leveling? When the bags are inflated and you go to level the coach they will change the geometry and with the rear being higher than normal the front end may be lifted off the ground by the leveling jacks. This will also impact the leveling systems zero point every time there is increase or decrease I air pressure within the bags.

On my rig, without the automatic dump valve, I manually raise the rear end until all of the air is released from the air bags. Once that happens I auto level the coach. Once the jacks are retracted and the engine is started the air compressor fills the air bags to proper ride height.

We had a pickup with a truck camper on the back. Put air bags on but only inflated to about 35 psi. Worked so much better. Drove to Alaska with it and so glad we had it! Thanks for info on leveling! We will have to see what happens. We do not have auto dump.

The air ride is on. We set it the bags 50 psi. It has dramatically improved the ride.
It really took the hard shock out when hitting bumps on a bad road!!
