I have a 88 super chief (winnebago) and i'm not sure about how much air to run in the rear bags. Can anyone help?

I've found that adjusting the rear air bag pressure so the coach sits level front to rear and side to side will give you the best handling. I used to have too much air in the rear and the MH would wonder down the road.

Find a flat level driveway to find the correct set up for your rig.
Everyone will have different amounts of air depending on their particular load, so no set numbers.

I would basically start with around 60 lbs and go from there and yes you do want the coach atleast level or slightly higher than the front for best handling I've found. One easy way I've found to put in the correct air is to turn on your compressor and shut it off when it reaches the desired amount, then air up 1 bag (unless it airs both at once) until air quits flowing. Turn compressor back on and repeat other side the same way. Air bags have such small volume that its hard to use a air gauge to set the amount without losing more air than you wanted.
