I have a 2015 roadmaster with air shocks, is it normal to have to pump them up every week? I pump them to the desired level and within a week they are down to 0,

It depends on how much pressure you put into them. If you are topping them off at 130-150 then they will leak down after a few days. If you are only doing 75 or less they usually will hold for weeks. There was a updated Fox shock for leaking issues. Mine was changed to the newer one under warranty. If you have the original then most likely the shock itself is the issue. I got one of these small hand held battery air pumps
Mine is close to this one. Kinda useless for doing car or motorcycle tires but great on the air shock. I have used it to top off the bike tires but takes a really long time to add a few psi to them. Dean
