Default Coachcraft by McDonald

Tony, welcome to the forum. You are best qualified to address this leak since you already appear to know the general location; left, center or right side of coach, front or rear; is the leak in braking system or the auxiliary air system?

If the dual pressure gauge (the dash gauge with two needles) is holding 100+ psi for 12 hours or more, look elsewhere for the leak.

If the steps, air horns, sewer dump valves and copilot seat slide fail to work after 15 to 30 minutes (with engine OFF and aux compressor off) you likely have a major air leak or several small leaks.

Lots of help available on the forum, however be very careful about dropping off your coach at just any RV repair place.

Coachcraft in Columbus GA would be highly qualified to fix your Wanderlodge and they will be fixing coaches at the WOG 2018 Rally in Pine Mountain GA in this coming October. www.coachcraftbymacdonald.com/services

look for a commercial tour bus or big truck repair shop, that will work on a bus chassis motorhome, They will need a pit or a lift. Maybe a mobile truck service.

Guys , being new to ownership experience, is there a source on WOG perhaps in archives that would give a newbie a general primer on the layout of the air system and different valves that control ride height etc. need to develop a understanding of how it’s all tied together. Any insight or resources would be appreciated.

Happy New Year everyone

You can check the spreadsheet linked for you body number to see if Randy has any documents for your specific coach.

TY, Bruce I will check when I get home. Are you suggesting there may be a air system diagram?

I bought an Inficon 211 Whisper Ultrasonic Leak Detector (not a refrigerant detector) off Ebay a couple of weeks ago and it will find any air or vacuum leak, big or small, under insulation or not, audible or not. It works great. The ear phones were kind of cheap so i use my NASCAR radio earphones.
I'm happy.
