Good evening:

Getting back to this aspect of my MH project! My air compressor seems to work fine. The air bags fill up right on que and then will take more than one day to deflate. No obvious rapid leak. Overall, the ride relating to the rear end is pretty stiff. Does not feel like much cushioning is happening. The shocks are new. Any suggestions?

PD

There is an obvious leak.

When the little "check valve" that's in the air pressure line starts going bad, it does not shut off the return to the compressor.

That allows the air from the bags to flow back thru that valve and back into the compressor.

When that valve is working correctly, it only aloows air to flow to the bags, and not from them.

I would suggest that you replace that check valve as soon as you can.

Finally got this finished and it works very well, I have complete control over the whole system and I'm very pleased with the results

Do you stock the check valve?

I use one of these VIAIR Corporation - 450C IG Part No. 45050 45058

I like the 100% duty cycle at 100psi. It might be a bit of overkill but I don't worry about air pressure any more.

Cheers, Dan

Airstream used 2 different compressors.

Which one do you have?
