Make sure you use a fair amount of white plumbers/air fitting tape on your air supply thread.
My good friend Joe, who helped me with this just told me to mention: make sure you have someone that is very agile, has small hand with a lot of strength and doesn't mind to get dirty and use a damn power washer next time to wash off some dirt prior to the party...

I know this is an old thread, but as soon as the snow melts and I can get under my 84 Excella 270, I want to check the bags, bushings and the control valve.
I have a strange problem with my compressed air supply. When the temps are above freezing, I am not loosing air pressure. When they go below freezing, I think something in the rear suspension is draining the air.
My suspicion is the control valve has a problem, but it could be the bags also.
Has anyone had any recent experience with this system? Mine is the Superide 8015 model.

Wayne, the cold air is probably shrinking the old rubber and opening a small leak somewhere. This doesn't surprise me a bit.
