On our 345 we manually fill the fronts at 55-60 psi. I can't remember the rear psi, but it is handled automatically by the compressor. Ron

Air bag (me & Bess the coach)

Had the front springs replaced a few years ago during front end work, had
the bags installed when we bought her. Spring guys said bags were only a
"helper" when coils had expired. She sure rides better with new coils!!!!

Something I just remembered about the suspension when they re-did the
front & rear springs & bags: you can find a level spot & measure the distance
from the body above the tires to the ground. It should not be out more than
3/4" of a inch side to side. Front end alignment very important on the P-30
chassis since we have such great roads here in America! I would bet most
(including me early on) had not realized how far out the suspensions get.
Going thru tires? Check that alignment. I was lucky to have my local fire
dept. as customers; they turned me on to the folks that did their rigs. Don't
go to the auto folks...these are heavy rigs & need the pros.
