Air ride seats?
« on: October 14, 2021, 01:25:00 pm »
Has anyone ever installed air ride seats in their RV? Pro's / Con's?
My seats need to be updated and I found a nice set of air ride seats out a Peterbilt.

I like the idea of air ride seats, its all about comfort on the road. What are you going to use for your air supply? Do you already have something installed?

I did pull the trigger on buying the seats and they were just delivered this morning. From what I understand some seat have their own little compressor built in. Hopefully that is the case for these seats. If not a small compressor can be bought for around $180.
I will keep you posted.

Looks like I will need and air compressor. These do not have the one built into the base of the seat.

Have you sourced an air compressor yet? Maybe you can add some train horns now you will be getting an air compressor. I often thought about getting a set, to help get peoples attention. Very Respectfully
