So today I go out with my handy dandy spray bottle of windex to check for leaks at the tank, pump, etc. I turn on the key, the pump starts and pressure starts to build. I spray the fittings at the tank, pump, bags and no air appears to be leaking. I turn the petcock valve and low and behold air does come out this time, so this is the accum. tank. The pump pumps until it reaches 130 psi and shuts off and it appears to hold so I surmise there is no leak, or at least no significant one.
So now I go to the left side rear tire which is near the area where the leveling device is mounted and start rocking the boat side to side. With each "rock" I hear air escaping from under the RV indicating the leveling device is doing what it supposed to do. After several times, I hear the pump start up again to replenish the accum. tank. So I think things are working as designed but perhaps the tank/pump is too small for this type of application.
Jim, you say it should pump range should be between 70 and 105 psi. Is there an adjustment for this on the pump or is it preset at the factory ?
Does anyone know if there is an adjustment as to how much air is released from the bags or a way to adjust when the air is released so that only significant rocking causes the gates to open?
