Hauling a load?

I recently went down south on a golf trip with 7 buddies in my 2011 Coachmen Freelander motor home. We had it loaded down pretty good but I didn't stop to check the weight that I was hauling since I hadn't ever needed to on previous trips with less people and less cargo. I noticed when I went over some bumpy interstate sections that it rode a bit rough in the rear of the rig. I feel like should had added air to the RideRite helper springs suspension system. I can't seem to find out how much air I should keep in the suspension system and how much to add with a heavy load. Any advice would be appreciated.

My air bags take from 10 to 90 psi. I run them at about 15. You need enough to even out the height of the rig front to back, and side to side, but don't put in so much that your drawers jump out of their designated locations when you hit a bump.

Yeah, I really hate when my drawers jump out of their designated location. Gets darned uncomfortable.

Depends on the ride you want. I normally run mine at 55 PSI.
