Default Continuing air problems

Now that I have my air problem solved as far as suspension and brakes go, I am continuing to have a problem with what I call the junk air system the one that runs the steps a black and gray tank valves things like that.
Brakes and suspension are holding air for a good 24 hours but I would say I get five minutes for those other things. It’s easy to see by looking at the pressure gauge by the black tank. I can pretty much watch it go down.

Number one question are the right height levelers on that same air tank as the brakes and airbags?
This is a statement am a pneumatic neophyte.
I am back on the road again so I need real easy instructions on things to look for.
I feel safe enough driving but I just want to get this fixed.

Default Aux air system

The steps, levelers, Dupree valves are all on the aux system. there are pressure protection valves that prevent this system from draining the brake systems. My coach was leaking profusely at the toggle valves that control the waste tank valves-new O rings solved that problem. Still bleeds down within the hour-I assume levelling valves. The brake systems on mine will hold air for a week...

One other little thing. If I don’t jump the air in the suspension right away when I stop, all the air goes out of whatever tank it is that runs a low air light and the alarm on the dash. So if I want to dump the suspension I cannot do that. I actually have to run the bus to put air into that bank so I can dump the air out of the airbags.
I need to get someplace once again where I can get the front end of the bus up to see if I can find a leak.
Currently in the middle of the cascades going south around Mount Rainier not a lot of places to stop.

I used Western Star in Ridgefield Wa for any problems the bird has. They are the ones that made me a new throttle cable.
No big deal to work on birds there.

360-887-7540
600 S. 56th Place
Ridgefield, Wa.

Gives free 15 amp hookups for work done if you need it.

Just a thought.
