What year/chassis do you have?
I have a 1999 P32 16,500 gross weight chassis and my front air bags work best between 70psi and 75psi.

Another thing that helps stabilize my 30ft MH is weight in the back. My water tank is at the very back of the MH and running with it 1/2 to 3/4 full of water provides a noticeable improvement in stabilization. I don't know if it is the water weight or water dampening the sway but it helps. My suspension is all stock (new air bags, replaced bushings, replaces lower ball joints, and new steering stabilizer but with OEM parts).

Someone else’s pressure may not be correct for your situation.

Ride height needs to be measured and the bags adjusted that way.

There are numerous articles on the Internet that explain the correct way to adjust your suspension.

Also if you have levelling jacks, lift up your front end before you inflate the air bags, then lower it, this will help get the air bags properly placed in the coils.

There is a standard measurement for the P32 wide track chassis. I believe it is 2 to 2&1/2 inches between the bump stop and the frame. I believe the air bags have a max pressure of around 75 lbs.
I believe this measurement is the height it has to be for proper wheel alignment.

Maybe the old ones 30-40 years ago, but the modern Airlift (red) ones are rated at 100 psi, And Firestone (blue) ones suggest pressures up to 90 psi though don't publish a max presure.
