Does anybody have any information on the normal losses from airbags each day or week? This is my first experience with airbags. Thanks.

good morning JM.

do not have the documents with me, but recall that the instructions mentioned up to 4 psi loss per week.
my personal experience is less than half of this.

we leave our camper fully packed on the truck 24/7, image the constant load and starting psi may influence the air loss.

I leave my Lance 915 on about 80 % of the time, and have not noticed any loss of air in my air bags. I run them at 40 lbs loaded and 12 lbs empty. The only time I have had to add air is when I put the camper back on. I do check the pressure before heading every time.
