My 91 is set so 65 pounds of Tag axle air gives me 10,000 lbs of load on the tag axle.

Some confusion between the shop that installed it and other shop I have had it at. Being addressed now. As a side note, I took the motorhome up to wildwood on Sunday to have the wheels polished out and noticed that the tag axle tire and rim/hub were very hot almost to much to touch while the main axle was much cooler. Driver and passenger sides) Could this be from the tag pressure being to high? (125 psi) have also had new brakes, rotors, drums installed and it was suggested that maybe something was hanging up. Also had a bearing and seal replaced, but we are looking at that being the problem.

Any advice welcome.

Hi Bragg,

In post #35, I suggested checking the actual tag air bag pressure with a known good pressure gauge rather than just going by the dash gauge. Do you know if anyone has done that and confirmed that the dash gauge is showing the actual tag pressure?

Hi John
The new valve in the rear that controls the tag was the wrong one as well as the dash gage needed replacing, so your advice was spot on. Thanks again for all the help. Hope to see you at the rally if I can make it.
