When you take the weight off, the air bags inflate because it is trying to level the back of the truck. The air bags will deflate when you add weight, then they inflate to level the rear of the tractor.

Bobcat, You have that backwards. The air bag is just a pneumatic spring. The more air pressure the "bigger/stiffer" the spring. The more weight that is on the rear of the tractor the bigger the spring needs to be. So when you disconnect the trailer, the airbags deflate, and vice versa.

The bag itself will have the same appearance, trailer attached or no trailer. It will have more pressurized air in it with a greater weight.

I miss those days when my girls were little and I used to do stuff like that.
