That is right Brett on the 325 and 345 the layout is as stated

On the opposite side of the compressor is the relief valve it has been working but does not make a sound when the compressor shuts down.

The dual levelling controls on the 325 make a need for a lot of air when driving on crowned roads as the unit is trying to right itself as you drive

Thanks again for your help
I will try to remove this valve right away

I have the dual valves as well and my system is all ways doing a dump and fill as I drive over expansion joints and in and out of parking lots.

sound like you need to do what is did install the check valve at the compressor and when you get the time move it to the tank . mine has been working for about a year no problems . i screwed it into the compressor head cant get any closer than that. i do plan to move it when i get around to it. lol

3 lb crack pressure sounds right for the 1/2" pipe size.
I would be interested to know if you found it at the local auto parts store and how much it costs?

Talking Compressor update - Success

Hi Peter and Brett
We made it out on our trip on monday.
I replaced the check valve and everything seems to work properly our first leg of our trip was 225 miles of county roads with a lot of crowning.
When I remove the old valve it was in backwards no wonder I have had problems since we bought gthe coach.
You could blow into the valve the way it was installed but with diffculty.
Peter valve was available through local UAP store but took 3 hr to delivered on Monday AM $12.50 Can about 9-10 US $ I bought 2 to have a spare.
Once again the forum help get our trip underway
Thanks Guys
Ray and Evelyn

Ray, good deal on the successful repair.
Someone must have increased the pressure switch settings to blow thru the backwards check valve ?
Airstream dealers charge you $38.- for that valve. It's always good to uncover some of their unjust pricing.
Have a safe trip.
