Me either. lol

I've had it all apart due to an air leak at the bottom of the aux tank and also since a unknown water leak had rotted the mounting board that held up a couple of junction areas. That was 14 months ago so I'm probably remembering wrongly.....

So what I am sure of is (because I just went back out and checked) the air from the compressor goes through the Norgren water separator and then into the tank.

A 1/2" line comes from the top of the tank into the Bendix desiccant cartridge and then returns to a junction.

Admittedly, I start to get a little fuzzy here. It goes in a half dozen different directions from here.

There are a couple of solenoids in there as well. Dan, do you have any idea what they go to or are used for?
