Trailaire pressure gage

This started off as one of those things that we who tinker does just because we can. Was my father in laws idea and was on my Sunnybrook. Turned out that I used it often to find that sweet spot depending on how loaded down we were so I put it on the Voltage the other day.

That's pretty slick. I would have considered doing that if I didn't keep my Trail Air covered when not in use.

Very cool!!! Also a good place to hang the wiring harness and break-away cable but not a good idea.
The trick would be to have a remote controlled, directly connected compressor installed so you could hook up, look in the mirror and bring the arrows up.

I have the triple shocks on mine. I don't know that I noticed a big difference but then again I haven't been driving on any really terrible roads.

I may do the gauge also and mod my cover. Actually my cover is just a black Marti Gras tee-shirt for now . My wife bought some great boat cover material for our Honda EU 3000 generator and she wants to make a cover for the Trail Air.

Sundancer - trust me. My father in law and I have discussed remote air control. We already have wireless airbag controller for the rear axle and adding another solenoid would be easy - just cost-prohibitive...I have a compressor and QD in the truck toolbox, so only takes a few seconds to make any needed adjustments.
