Tag Axle Allegro Bus

When put in reverse or when dumped, should tires lift from ground?

No, the tires do not lift off the ground. The tag axle pressure is reduced to zero, hopefully, and then most of the rear weight is shifted onto the drive axle. The tag tires must still support the weight of the tag tires and wheels and the tag axle itself. Many threads on TRVN network discuss this.

Actually, when the tag is dumped, the bag pressure is reduced from about 65 psi down to 20 psi. That is the way they come from the factory. I have played with the minimum pressure taking it down to 10 psi, but then the tag tires will slide when braking below 10 mph due to the ABS being inoperative below 10. I took them back up to 20.
