Default BMC Air Tank Drains

OK. I've got the coach up on my ramps. Jack stands in place. I crawl under it to install what I thought was three manual drains with lanyards and now that I can see better: I find four drains. Rats.

Left hand forward tank has two drains: one on each end of the tank.

Right hand forward tank has one drain.

Aft tank (Just foreward of rear axle) has one drain. This tank is for the air suspension. Drain this one and the coach WILL drop on the air bags. Make sure you have good jack stands etc!!!!!

Just FYI for the next guy.

On the good side, no water from any of the drains. :-)

Better yet, NO OILY WATER, this weekend you can blame it either way on the luck of the Irish.....and if you are not Irish, I'll appoint you as an Honorary Irishman for the next four days............

Congrats on the no water in the tanks!

I checked my tanks for the first time last fall. I just KNEW I would end up with tanks that were half full with water. Well, to my complete surprise, they were all bone dry! Not even a hint of water! Trust me, that was quite a relief!

as long as the air dryer is working there will be no water in the tanks.
