with the extra fuel tanks I carry I probably have to put more air in mine than most would. With the generator, slide-in-slide and fuel tank......I put about 4200 lbs in the bed

Before installing the satellite we were only 3,100 on the pin, with the sat at the rear we might be less than that now.

I have the Airlift 5000. Usually run about 48-50 lbs loaded. If in bumpy territory like yesterday, I go to 60 or so.
My Dually has the camper option so has heavier overload springs. My airbags are for control only as rig sits totally level when hooked without them

For anyone ordering a Dually or looking at ones on the lot, get the camper package. It's only about a $300 option when ordered but adds the heavier overloads (doesn't effect the normal ride at all) and a heavier alternator and some other stuff.

I measured my rear wheel wells without the trailer attached, 5 psi in the bags (rides best empty). Then with the trailer attached I remeasured and just aired up until it was equal in height. For my particular setup that's 80 psi.

I have the Firestone bags with the Airlift onboard compressor and wireless remote.
