First thing.

Buy yourself a good air pressure gauge for the tires and use it regularly, at least once a day when traveling and once right before you leave. It is extremely important to maintain proper air pressure.

Next, teach your wife how to dump the black tank. That is traditionally the wife's job and people will make fun of you at the dump stations if they see you doing it yourself.

Have a good time!

Hey jeb my tires were filled with nitrogen from the factory. Now I have to find a place that will check and add to them since I was told they should not need any adjustments and NOT to add air to them?

The tire that doesn't occasionally need air has not been invented yet.

I'm curious though. Who told you that and did they also suggest that you not check the pressure on a regular basis? If they advised you to check the pressure regularly, why do you think they did that?

Nitrogen in trailer tires is a gimmick. Nothing more, nothing less.

See if she got the male gloves. If so, take them back and exchange them for female gloves.

..but don't tell her until it's time to dump the tanks. Most wives just love surprises! You will be cherished.
