If You have the picture on your computer hit reply to thread and scroll down and you will see a box "manage attachments". Click it and another box will appear and you can browse for the file and then upload it to your post.

I forgot where I got the pic but I am on the road so I don't have access to my files at home. If you study the pic and look closely at your suspension you can see how simple a system it really is.

Good luck, Dan

I'm not sure how your 345 is set up with the tag axle but normally the compressor is controlled by a pressure switch that turns it on and off automatically at preset pressures. This would maintain a minimum air pressure in your storage tank to feed the leveling valve. A leveling valve will regulate the pressure in the air bags to keep the coach at the proper ride height. The entire system should be automatic. A dash switch would only be used to shut down the system to jack up the coach for service or tire chance or something similar.

Good Luck, Dan

My DIY

Here is a link for a DIY I did for another site. The photos do not work that I put there, and not able to fix, but all the info that I went through and part numbers are there. Good luck.

Ours works like a champ. Best thing for the compressor is to run you a big gage wire back to it with a relay. My small gage with the AS put in was getting hot, and when I went to the new system, compressor runs much faster!
