Default Won’t go down

The front passenger side air springs are not deflating. I have reinflated it several times and picked it up and down with the jacks to no avail. Anyone know off the top of their head before I crawl underneath. Those big jack stands get heavier and heavier each time. Concrete gets harder, too.
Thanks
Dan

This concerns the FC series, but I think yours is the same. The suspension dump valves require a pilot air pressure to dump the bag circuit. If there is no air they stay up. The front bags only employ a single ride height control valve-all 4 bags on the front are connected together.

Dan , I think your issue could be with the clippard s . They are located on the drivers side, where the fuses are . George once told me that is used to lower the suspension . They are easy to get to, you do know the coach must be running when you try to lower I assume . Sorry I cant be more help .

The two Clippered valve have the yellow caps on them and they let air go to the valves that let the air out of the bags, one for the front and one for the rear( drive and tag). If only one on front not going down might be A plugged line.

Thanks guys
I’ll check those cliffords out.
Al, I did not know that it has to be on. That might be it. On my WB it doesn’t matter.
Thanks again
Dan

You need AUX air to run the valves. Sounds like an issue with the right rear. Fronts are all connected together.
