    Would anybody be kind enough to advise the best pressure for Ride-Rite air bag assist as fitted to Nissan Navara towing Dream seeker?

    Also anybody know a way of stopping the loud squeaking from the wear plate fitted to Dream Seeker pin box.

    Many Thanks.

    Im hauling a Kountrylite at 3660KG and run at about 2.5 bar. A couple of mates with similar set ups run at 2 bar. Too high will make for a harsh ride. Too soft and you Nav will be on the stops...........and God knows Navs seem to "sit down" as it is!

    Wear plates will stop the squeeking. Calder sell them, you could ask 5th wheel co or ABP.
    Personally, I've found Holts motorbike chain grease to be fantastic. Cheap as chips and easy to spray on. IMHO, the "propper" pin box greases are way overpriced for what they are.

    Thanks Zaskar,
    I forgot to ask also if 2 to 2.5 bar loaded or not? I had about 10psi so I have now put up to 30psi.
    I will let you know if better, as away this weekend.

    I run 2.5 bar LOADED.:thumb:
    When unloaded, always, always keep at least 1/2 bar in the bags (I run at 1 bar unloaded) otherwise you can cause serious damage to the bags due to "pinching" when the bags are flat.:Wink:
