    I have a Fontaine Workhorse 55 LCC. The decals for the suspension gauge, pressure chart, are missing. Does anyone have a pic of one showing psi = axle weight?

    You need to make your own list of the air pressure every time you get on a cat scale loaded or one where you are loading and write it down until you get it loaded to the max then you will know, every time you charge the ride height it will change the pounds it reads for legal weight? 20,000lbs per axle can be around less than 70lbs of air but all are different

    For many of our trailers I have that, but we have quite a few trailers of different manufacturers and types. We have two of these that I haven’t run anything heavy enough on to worry about.

    You can have two trailers spec'd the same and the air pressure can be a little different.

    I keep a Google Doc on my phone that I update for each trailer I pull in our fleet. How I loaded it, how much it weighed, how it was shimmed and air pressure if needed.
