What trouble can water in the airline ceause in the tire?
LOt of moisture coming from the fill up hose.
fundamentally, there is nothing wrong with your 65lbs pressure. However, since you have load range D tires, and plenty of reserve capacity, plus you'r ein cool weather, you could lower the pressure to about 50lbs, get a smoother ride that way, and perhaps make things a little easier on the trailer. You will still have plenty of carrying capacity at 50lbs on load range D tires.
Moist air in the tires is not necessarily a good thing...but just putting in nitrogen or CO2 won't help much either, since the moisture most likely has already condensed inside to water.
If you're worried, have the tires removed, everything dried up, cleaned, inspected, and then install the tires, and fill thme with either dried air, CO2 ,or Nitrogen. I think, personally, that dry air will do just fine.
