Been using a BD 3 for 7yrs . It is heavy but your trailer and truck rides so much better. The Airbags are top notch and usually go a couple of months or more before needing any. Just a simple compressor or a gas station compressor works . Expensive yesbut so are your truck and trailer .

I totally agree. The only time in 5 years I've changed air pressure in the bags is due to temperature changes.

Good for you. You will like it.

As for airing I installed an AirLift Wireless One air compressor under the truck and plumbed it to the hitch. I already had the compressor from a previous truck and figured this would be a good use for it and it has been. Whenever we get home I need the Excel sitting as low as possible because of my garage opening height and use the remote to deflate it. Also, there have been a few situations where an unlevel approach to a park site has caused the Excel to tilt to one side getting too close to my side rails for comfort. I just air the bags to max and gain a couple more inches of clearance. In reality the compressor is more of a convenience than a necessity but I do like it.
