all the ones I have done, and I'm assuming you are saying air over spring
what I do is get wheel measurement all four corners..
then add air... equal side to side so that It lifts the coach 1/2'' all the way around... when I measure on level ground,if lets say the rear left is lower I add air to make it level in that corner first.. when its level.. I use that base then up from there..I record the pressures.. so to know later the extra pressuse needed to be level... I always level the rear first as that uselly levels the front
but if not, I do the same to the front.. with all the pressures recorded... that's my base.. and with it lifted .. that's my max...so lets say the pressure is 45psi on the r rear... and 40 psi on the left... I know that to be level it need s 5 lbs more on the r.r.
also I always just put a Schrader for each bag... but my son does a manifold with 4 switches and a pump..
I cool way to do it would be to put a guage on each corner, as most the time you lose pressure just checking... I aired mine with nitrogen and uses the same filling device I used to charge gass shocks...
once you get a base line for each corner you can adjust from there... what I found was the more air made it ride better going straight.. but not so in turns and out of drives,..
again.. this is just how I do it...enjoy
