Default Tag Axle Air Pressure Issue

Guys/Galls,

My issue started when attempting to air up the other day , and the suspension dump light remained on . I also noticed the rear end was very low , and in no way could I connect my trailer and hit the road.

So , after searching the internet for about 4 hours I figured it to be the clippared Valve , nice write up from Tim , and Gunner , thank s Guys , great info there. So after talking to Cameron who was in Orlando , he offered to exchange valves with me and order a new one ( Big Shout out to Cameron ) , however , on the way home , all excited and expecting the clippard to be the cause , I get a adamant tex from Georg M who goes to tell me in , no uncertain words , It may be a problem , but it is Not causing the Tag to Not inflate !! Boy , were those not the words I wanted to hear from the most knowledgably BB man out there , ough !!

So ,, as George said , it was not the cause of the Tag Bags Not Inflating . So , now I jack up the coach , search the WOG , for proper support , and I begin to replace the PPV . I install WM147 P.

Now here are my questions .

Was this the correct valve to replace ?

Why is Air only going to 1 bag ?

Why is no pressure registering on the gauge ?

and where may I ask is the Valve Assy Red 70 lb located ?

Any and all ideas will be considered , thank you in advance

Al
Do you hear air leaking near the tag axle?
Could be a leaking bag, a broken air line, a faulty air regulator valve, faulty tag dump valve.
Rob Robinson and I had to replace the tag axle air regulator on his bus a couple days ago, due to it leaking.

Hi Al, if you are referring to the regulator for the Tag pressure. Mine is located on the curb side, battery compartment. To the right of the double stacked coach batteries on the bulk head, towards the back.
Search for ( Variable Tag Axle Pressure Setup ) for picture of Tag Regulator.
Note, that my setup has the ability to vary the tag pressure from the drivers seat. But I would figure that the Regulator will look the same and be in the same location.
Also note, that the regulator has a locking kinda nut, to maintain the regulator's adjustment knob from changing, which you have to loosen to adjust the regulator's pressure.
Hope this helps

Rob's regulator is located under the bus, on a cross member aft of the tag axle. You have to block up the bus or put it on ramps to get at it safely and easily.

No Air leaks at all . Do you recall which regulator you used , is it the same # s as I did ? I'm thinking about disconnecting the clippard , as I was told it is only for dumping ? I may have made a error with the wiring of the clippard , worth a try I guess . If air is going through the clippard in the raise position , then I would guess the error is there , would be nice if it works cause I do hate going under this beast Thank you for the advise

Here's a link to the air regulator I have ordered. It is a Bendix 288084

This is the regulator that Rob's bus uses.

Rob and I were typing at the same time.

The pressure protection valve and the air regulator valve do different things, not the same valve at all.

I do remember your post on that option , but I do not have it so I did not think about it Gunner . I plan to not allow air to the CV and hope the wiring is my issue . I think going to where we last worked is a good place to start . I will report my findings . thank you , and keep the ideas coming

Valve is factory set for 47 psi. You have to adjust it to your desired tag axel pressure.

now , that is not what I have . I looked on that top rail and only have the standard PPV with a device with 2 wires on it . They are for the Clippard Valve .

So looks like I need to find that puppy and hope I can get it local . Remember I have the steerable tag

Thank you Rob & Peter for getting up early to answer me
