Interesting...prior to buying our HR, we looked at a 2008 CC Magma, and the salesman proudly pointed to the adjustable tag air pressure valve in the engine compartment, and claimed "only CC does this" stating that most other brands make you crawl under the coach to adjust the tag air pressure. I asked why the pressure isn't factory set and he replied that the factory will "roughly set" it, but it needs to be re-set after all your stuff is loaded, so as to balance out the weight spread per axle. So when we looked at the HR, I was happy to see the same type of adjusting valve just to the left side in the engine compartment. Might be worth crawling around a little to look. IIRC, mine was set at 60 psi, and I bumped it up to 70 psi, and immediately noticed less wandering. I still need to weigh each rear axle to get a better idea where it needs to be.

Running more pressure in the tires will give a slightly rougher ride. We are within a few thousand pounds of max weight, so I don't bother reducing pressure from what CC recommends.
As I stated in my previous post: Country Coach has changed that and only recommends running the sticker pressure. Still looking for the cite and will post it when I can find it again.

Sorry, I did not see that post. Also, I am sorry for Hi-jacking the OP's topic.

I think what rvnewbie was referring to was adjusting the bag pressure on the tag to get it to take more or less weight. My adjustment valve is just forward of the rear axle on pass side next to chassis battery box. Its set to 11,600 lbs. I took the road kings off after the last trip. Lonnie had suggested to break them in but im concerned I may break the coach before the shocks break in. I need to call them and tell them im sending them in for re-valving.

Thanks IASM, that is exactly what I was referring to.
