IMHO, Pubtym has a point. As you mil/civ aviation wrench benders will recall, one of the primary reasons for N2 aviation use is to reduce corrosion from water vapor in the tire assy, particularly at the bead and valve.

With "air", water can migrate to the bead/rim wall & cause trouble. If an RV tire were to be originally installed with N2, or shortly after original installation, the amount of corrosion would be minimized.

I'm still using air, but considering N2.

Something this forum seems to be lacking is an opinions (Just kidding). So here goes, spending time worrying about the difference between sea level and 10K feet much less using nitrogen to inflate your tires is like someone with a quadruple bypass trying to decide between Krispy Kream and Dunkin donuts. Either will not do any real good as far as their long term life expectancy, but eating them will sure add to your short term enjoyment of life. Forget the donuts (nitrogen) and just make sure you check your inflation pressures before traveling and watch for uneven tread ware. Oh, and for those with cholesterol levels that allow, go with the Krispy Kream donuts.

I disagree. Just an opinion.
