Proper air assist spring pressure??

Hello all, thanks for all the info on this forum.

We just bought a 03 Minnie for the family with plans on traveling the country before the kids are old enough to not want anything to with us.
After I brought it home, I was checking it over and found that it has air bag assist springs on the rear. can anyone tell me what pressure I should use in them?
They are just the bags with a line set and fill valve. No automatic pump.
Thanks for the help.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Congrats on your new rig too!

Are your manuals missing? Hopefully someone with a similar rig will chime in soon, otherwise a call to Winnie will get you an answer in a heartbeat... assuming they aren't after market air bags.

Best of luck...

Hi, if they are after market "helpers" as opposed to actual airbag suspension then they are all pretty much the same.
We have Firestone brand now and have had others.
All of them run to 100 psi max. and give the best all around ride and firmness at 60 psi.
They do not work anywhere near as well as actual suspension upgrades such as new leaf or coil springs but help older units that have begun to sag.
We mainly installed them to raise our rear end by 2" in order to not drag the receiver hitch frame when backing into our driveway.

When we have the money I certainly want new leaf springs on the back, as they will give all around performance in not only ride but sway as well.
but for the money, about 225 to 275 dollars a set, the air helpers are a good
in between solution.
