You should carefully re-read what I said.Apparently you didn't watch the video, they're not selling anything just explaining the difference in the physics of what each system does... having a degree is one thing, actually understanding how it applies is an entirely another concept that eludes some people.
No one is ragging on the Ram air suspension, just that some people have unrealistic ideas of what it does and it also doesn't have the greatest reliability track record.
Leveling anything will transfer some (vehicle) weight back to front of the truck... It also evens the load distribution on the trailer axles, AND helps a great deal with aerodynamic drag. This will help a great deal with handling, especially on slick roadways at highway speeds pulling a 28x6x8.5 v-nose enclosed trailer. Is it a replacement for a load distributing hitch? No. But it eliminates that sag you see from most of the trailers going down the road. It's a lot of work getting your rig level with traditional springs
Now, if I were pulling 8,000 or more with a 1500, I would want a LDH. I don't want or need one for 5500 lbs.
My physics degree is 35 years old... it's been a while, but I assure you I understand both Applied Physics and Mechanics. Heck, that's the easy stuff.
