Quick air bag question

If you go with the manual fill instead of the remote (on the dash) fill with the rear air bags, how do you do it?
Do you go with the hose and fill each bag to raise psi? and how do you lower psi. Is it like a regular valve stem on a tire?
The remote fill seems pretty expensive.
Thanks
Harry

Re: Quick air bag question

Harry, Most have a pig tail type air lead that you just reach in and fill just like a tire. I've seen some with bleeds and some plum the lines to an easy access point. There are pros and cons to all the setups. Mine are controlled from the cab. I can adjust to the trail as needed including leveling on off camber situations. But I seem to always have a slight leak and have to pump them up weekly. No big deal with an extreme air compressor on board.
Dave

Re: Quick air bag question

I recommend not installing a tee to fill both bags together. This will allow for air transfer, which will increase bodyroll (sometimes significantly)

yes that's correct, I was thinking air shocks on that one. I edited out that part of my post as it could be a safety factor. Thanks.
