Default Can someone tell me what this is in the Generator start compartment

This nozzle has no pressure. Is it to fill with perhaps?

. I doubt that's factory. Ask the PO.

Is there pressure when you air up? Looks to me like an aux air connect

Someone added a tire fill from brake air, I guess. Missing the retarder switch?

I think Chip is right. Another sensor was in the port and failed, and someone plugged the port with an air chuck connector; or, that port was plugged from the factory and someone put that connector there to check the pressure in that manifold.

It's an air port for the tow truck to connect air to release the brakes for towing, but could also be used for airing tires if the system air is up to full charge.

Since the two switches are for brake lights, WM777, the port is most likely to supply brake pressure to a proportional toad braking system. If there is pressure then the brakes are applied.

Air up the coach, step on the brake and you will have pressure at that port. If not see below.

Normally one brake switch is for the front brakes and the other is for the rear. That would lead me to believe that they are connected to different lines and it only looks like a common manifold. If that is so then what the quick connect is is a mystery

Thank you friends. Will put air in and advise. Makes perfect sense. Just saw nothing in the manuals about it!

On my 88 that is the spot where the pressure switch for the fast idle is. I just replaced it as it was giving me fits with intermittent fast idle and rpm surging while driving.
