We are just using the stock system. It is pre wired for a satellite antenna but I'm not interested in going that way at this time.

Just found that it has an air hose connection already installed! I tried it out but could only get about 113 psi into my tires. And that was somewhat of a struggle. Is there a trick to get more air pressure out of the system? Freightliner indicates that one should get 120 psi but not me. I was using 1/4 inch line but I'm not sure if that is the problem or not. Any suggestions?

you shoudl weigh it and run the tire pressure indicated by the tire maker for the loads they are carrying. 120 psi is going to be ROUGH and HARD
nice looking mh

I'm not trying to put 120 psi in the tires. I was using 115 psi until I got to a truck stop to weigh the rig.

We are still playing with what to carry full time (normal load) so we have not weighed our coach. We are planning a long (2 week) trip in August so we need to get this settled before we go.

What was the final air pressure that you put in your tires after you weighted your coach? We have 110 psi but I think that this is not correct because I do get some feedback up to the steering wheel when I hit some bumps.

I haven't made it to the scales yet. I plan on taking it within the next week or so. I want to make sure we are set before our trip to Nova Scotia next month.
