The air bags on my 1988 Dolphin have finally rotted out. I need to replace them. I plan on doing the work myself and need a recommendation on air bags that some of you no doubt have used. Any help would be appreciated.

Good choice and nice job. It’s a great product, and they really stand by the warranty.

So  4 to 5 hundred dollars for a system to keep your air bags level? You know they only need to be checked every once and a while. I don't get it. For leveling the fridge I have my trusty 12 volt air pump and after all these years I know when my fridge is level just by looking at the outside of the camper. Maybe I'm just cheap

I was cheap and lazy. I routed the both airlines to the driver side rear wheels. That way I could fill/release air with out having to go on a walkabout to get both valves.

A bulls eye bubble level on the rear bumper worked to level front to back and side to side.

My 87 New Horizon had a 9 leaf rear spring pack it sat high enough in the back I had plastic ramps to drive the front up on to level it out! I have no idea what they came from but my friend's 87 New Horizon has the same leaf pack.
