20 to 45 psi
50 to 75 psi

The air could leak out of the trailer air tank, releasing its emergency brakes.
if you don't use wheel chocks, supply air will be sent to the service line instead of going to charge the trailer air tanks.
You may not notice a major leak in the service line until you try to put the brakes on.
None of the above.
