You must crawl under and look. The air bags are inside the coil springs and have schrader valves to fill the bags. The front air bags should only be filled to 55#.

Our 345 has front bags. Don't know if they came from the factory or were aftermarket. The valves come through the shroud that is around the front bumper. They are on the topside of it. We can inflate them, when necessary, with the airhose at the gas station.

Both of the above are correct. You have to crawl under to look and see if you've got a remote fill added. If not you should consider this option as it's cheap. You'll be more inclined to check presure more often and have the correct amount of air working for you.
