Sounds like Polyairs ... have to be maintained at min(5 psi) or above .... max pressure in 30 psi (thats mine anyway) .

Bob when you are goin to put a load or trailer on your car, pump them to 30psi , load car and deflate till car is level, thats what it recomends in the manual from the maker, assuming they are polyair's.

Baz

ps,( never assume, you make an ass out of u and me )
sorry.

Thanks, Lizard,Errol & Baz.
We are just back from a couple of days in the snowy mountains.
I put 15 psi in the rear bags and the Patrol behaved it's self quite well.

The mountains are starting to look a treat (recovering)following the fires last year
and the snowy river can be seen in many places for the first time in a long time (no trees). can't wait to get back .!

Cheers
Bob

Polyair say inflate the red bags BEFORE you start laoding the vehicle. That way you don't get pinched sides of bags at high pressure
