|Tioga axle air-bags||Jim Manley||2-24-03|
|I discovered two-black air-bags placed between the rear-axle and the frame on my 1990 Tioga c-class, Ford Chassis. I presume they are intended to soften the ride? but am unsure. The inflation tubes are routed to near the rear wheels. Does anyone know what the recommended psi is? |

|Actually they will make the ride rougher. The basic problem is the chassis isn't really designed for the weight of the RV. The airbags stiffen the rear suspension. This reduces roll and can improve steering by shifting some weight forward and reducing the "tail wagg'n the dog" effect. Typically, airbags have a maximum inflation of 100 psi. You can also use the bags to level the RV if you buy a compressor and have separate tubes to each bag. |
Before you drive, though, make certain they are at the same pressure.

|Most manufacturers reccomend not using the air bags for more than a one inch rise, or a minumum of 45 psi or a maximum of 100 psi.|

|I put air bags on my 1980 dodge tioga and it made all the differance in the world air lift recommends no lower than 20psi and no greater than 90 psi or the bag could busrt also if you run under inflated you can pinch bag i use to put a little more pressure on the side that leaned i also built in a compressor next to water pump under couch with a under dash panel with guages and seperate fill buttons you can buy everything you need thru airlift good luck|
