Unhappy Air and ABS problems

Just got back from the repair shop in Panama City. I took it in to fix an air leak (4th place to work on it) and to fix the ABS problem (3rd place to work on it). I still have the problems. Bleakley, Josams, and the Truck repair place in PC have all failed.

What they told me this morning was that the actuator that locks and unlocks the steeable tag axle is leaking along a seam. They need knowledgable advice before they tackle this air leak problem.

They said they cleaned all my sensors and the ABS light was still on. They stated that they did not know if was a bad sensor or the ABS control module was the problem. Again, they need help in order to define where the problem is.

Sometimes my front and rear air tanks will hold pressure and sometimes they loose pressure in 30 minutes or so. This morning before I left(over night) and while waiting for service, air pressure in the front and rear air tanks held perfectly. After Service, I had to wait until air pressure built up before I could drive off (it sat for about 20 or 30 minutes). I don't think this has anything to do with the tag actuator air leak, because I believe that only affect the Aux. Air, which does steps, dump valves, etc.

I am not a mechanic, but I would welcome any suggestions or courses of action to take. This is about to drive me nuts. I would say drink, but I don't need any encouragement to do that.

The last 6 months have not been kind to me. My dimmer switch in the motor home tore up, so I replaced it with the identical switch. It worked a week before it tore up. Now I have the third switch (different brand) in there and it has worked for the past 5 days. Two switches in about 3 weeks. The gremlins are after me.

I feel your pain it's difficult to repair/fix things that work one time and not the next. Sounds like one of your dump sol valves is sticking sometimes,one thing to try is to clean and lube them. Best way is removal to clean and lube that way you can also check for bad o-rings.
For a down and dirty quick fix you could try dumping ALL air lowering coach [so it cannot drop] remove air input to valves and put several drops of LIGHT air line oil into line,reconnect cross fingers and try again,sometimes this works. DO NOT use WD40 it will gum it up even worse. ---- don't ask how I learned that

Richard, have you checked the park brake valve (dash valve)? If leaking that dash valve can pass a lot of air quickly. Try rotating the knob and jiggle the valve slightly and you may actually see the front and rear tank guages dropping pressure. John F. had a recent post about leaking dash valves.

Here is the thread that Dick is reffering to;
