Angry Replacement levelling valve for 1981 Excella 28 motorhome

Do any of you guys know what the (current) part number is for a replacement back air suspension levelling valve on a 1981 Excella 28' motor home? In the service manual it lists the part number as 600911 but I'm having no joy finding it anywhere. Anybody have a cross reference part number for a replacement that'll work? Many thanks in advance for any help or advice!

I believe this is the same leveling valve that I used on my old 310. Not sure if it's the same as your 81 would use but it might be worth looking into.

The Airstream factory still lists that valve, but they don't have any.

Airstreams price is over $ 400.00

There are other sources for that valve besides Airstream.

Check with a parts stocking dealer, and perhaps they can help you, since that valve is still manufactured.

Thanks guys. The valve you recommended will work, Brad. Do you have any leads on replacement airbags? One of mine is leaking and I'd like to replace the pair... ideally with ones that lift our motorhome a little higher at the rear end, but if not, anything that'll work!

I can't help with the air bags but there are lots of people on Airforums that have replaced the bags. Check out this thread on replacing air bags on an 82 280.

The Firestone Air Spring Replacement Guide has a cross reference from American Carrier part numbers.

I used a W01-358-5412 on my 1986 345 Classic. The W01-358-5311 may be correct for your rig, but I found it listed in the bus catalog. Attached are the pages for each. Both are currently available from truckspring.com. Check your dimensions and refer to the Firestone Guide here http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...oKqaODYUuucJrg

The leveling valves I used are Hadley H00450CA. There are comparable models from many manufacturers. Again check what you have. I know some years had a single valve and others had two valves, one on each side. Hopefully this helps some and with any luck my attachments and link work.
