Depends which compressor you have.

The small compressor, made by Perfect Circle, could take 20 to 25 minutes.

The larger and more expensive compressor made by Gast, would take about one half that time.

My MH is an 84. I think the compressor is a DANA.

Does that seem right?

Airstream only used the two that I mentioned.

I have no idea what the capacity of your Dana compressor may be. You could almost tell by size. If it's small then it will take a long time to fill the tank. The gast compressor as a example weighs about 30 pounds and is the size of almost two stacked shoe boxes.

You might also run a test on just the compressor, to confirm a reasonable output.

Great info Andy. Been watching this thread but have some questions.

I'm new to the Airstream and have just acquired a 83 classic 310. I have checked the hight that you called out, but I have about 10". The back looks high to the front, but just thought the front sagging from the years. PO had new air bags but in the front and running about 70 psi in them.

My rear bags are showing signs of cracking like you said. Where can I purchase new bags?

Thanks for all the help. This is a nice rig and plan to give it some needed detail work and polish!

Guy---I recieved the information that you sent and I do appreciate it greatly. So far my suspension works perfectly, but I have studied it and thought to myself, what do I do if something goes haywire. Thanks

Andy---Thanks for your input.

Thanks Guy for the files! This helps this gear head out a lot. Printed out great and will place them with the rest of my info.

When I purchased the moho, the PO did not have an Airstream manual.

Thanks again, great job.
