For reference, I've tried to fix all of my leaks, and my suspension still drops within a day. If the suspension stays up on all axles for an hour or so, then you don't have any significant leaks that would cause concern for driving. (Provided the compressor can air up and keep the AUX system at pressure.)
you sir are correct.

Thanks for all the information. I know I have a lot of questions and I have yet another. Lol. I have a switch on the dash that says compressor, is that to fill the suspension without running the engine and if so, how does that work. That might make it easier to fill the suspension without the noise of the engine running to find the leaks easier.

You have to be plugged in or on gennie. You also have to have an auxiliary compressor. It will be located in a bay most likely diver's side next to water bay. So if you have all that you flip the switch on and have your suspension dump switches set for up and it will air you up. You also have a schrader valve in the engine bay that you can put a shop compressor hose onto and air up that way at home.

Yes it has a liftable tag. It appears to do it automatically when I have the switch activated.

OK,heres the disclaimer, block the coach up well if your going to get under it, heavy jack stands and big dunnage to crib it up.
Don't get killed thinking you will just slide in for a minute.
be careful.
I read on another thread you had alternate part numbers for different bags, larger ones I believe that would work. The ones listed above in this thread aren't available anywhere I've searched except for one place, and they wanted 743 a piece for them. So I'm just looking for alternatives at the moment.

No,you have to get the correct bags for that lift axle, yes,you will have to order them.

I don't think the issue is with the tag axle. It's the main axle that's the problem. I was just curious if there were alternatives to the ones listed above for the main axle.

I told you they were expensive! If you want an alternative, find the Firestone air bag catalog, and do some research. But I doubt you will find an alternate that fits.

Maybe joe Moore will tell us who has them for $300, although he told me they were out of stock.

I found them in the Forestone catalog under part number W01-358-8055, but no one has them that I can find. I think the plandemic has everything a mess. I just thought I had read that there were alternatives that people had tried and were successful with.
