When I got to the campground, I had to park under a large tree to keep the trailer from floating away.

And my gas mileage didn't really improve that much. Overall, a less than optimal experience.
Under correct circumstances, it will help mitigate shot axles, though.

Just checked my tires again (6 months later) and they are still holding the same presser. All 4 tires are still the same! I am having similar results on my motorcycles, scooters, bikes and other cars. Quite the novelty! I am still sold

I have had the same experience with my TV. I check them, just don't fill them. All I use is air.
