Thought I would pass this along.

Our first tow was down 35W (Fort Worth) down to Burleson...if you have traveled this road you know it is a rivet popper. with our Jayco and our 5th AB sidewinder, it was tolerable and I ran 20lbs of air in my Firestone air bags

So I pulled on Wed down to Jellystone park (Rustic Creek Park) and 35 beat the living crap out of me...

So I did an experiment today. I ran a test at 40lbs, 50lbs and 60lbs. I have NEVER run that much air in my air bags but 55 was the magic number with my set up and with the Morryde.

So the moral of the story, if you get a Morryde king pin and you have air bags...pump more air in there.

It was night and day difference.

Cheers

RR

Doesn't that much air in your air bags raise the rear of your truck to high?
If I was to pump that much in the air bags on my truck I wouldn't be setting level anymore.

It does the reaise the truck for sure but in my case to dead level. I think the key for my new set up is to stay off the overloads...they hit really hard.

Here is a pick I took while pulling back in to storage..this was with 55lbs of air in the bags.
