Slow, the airbag rear end on my 28' AS 1984 was done by ACS and they still support the system. I replaced mine last year as they where dry rotted. As long as they hold air and don't look to be deteriorated they should be good for a long, long time. I think mine where original.
I had mine done by the local truck suspension outfit in Columbia, SC who are an ACS shop.
Not sure what year your coach is but mine came with 19.5" rubber.

My airbags are original 1982 vintage, functioning as new. I do treat the outside with a rubber conditioner evry year, but I can't say that does anything for them.

Your coach should have 8Rx19.5" tires.

Air bags last a long time IF you keep air in them.
Having low air pressure in the air bag is a sure way to destory one. I know

Air Bags

My Motorhome is a AS 370LE with six air bags. They have never been replaced and look and perform well.

My 1982 airbags are original. My 1949 windbag is original as well. Both are in fine working order.
