Default Low air buzzer not shutting off

My low air buzzer is not shutting off. Can anyone tell me where that switch is located and also where the air tank(s) is located. The coach is on the ground
so not easy to get a good look at anything right now,but would like to know
before I go under the coach if I need to. All help appreciated.

Bill ,

The sensor should look like this picture, I do not know where on your BMC they are located,
But there are several for the brake front & rear systems, suspension, and accessories.
On My FC there is one under the front bumper on the driver side, one on the first air tank ( accessory tank/wet tank) another on the rear frame rail passenger side above the rear wheel. There could be more.
It is like a treasure hunt, could be anywhere. Someone with a BMC may answer.

This may be a silly question, but is your coach airing up?

If it is, then I had a similar issue on my 94 WB, which of course may be may be configured different. The buzzer would not go off even though it was airing up properly and holding pressure.

Turned out there was a problem with one of my jacks that was not completely retracting. To be able to travel without the buzzer and the flashing light, I unplugged the "master air" connection in my HWH control box.

Got the jacks back working properly, plugged the sensor back in and no further problem.

Brad ,

Good question I may have misunderstood the problem.

On my FC the pressure switch reads the 'wet tank' pressure. I hada similar problem and replaced the switch. I got the switch from a NAPA store and it works fine now. The new switch was round rather than the shape of the one Bill referenced.

Bill, on my 94 WB, I will get a low air warning light and buzzer if my HWH fluid reservoir is low. Are you getting a green travel light on your HWH key pad?

The "Wet Tank" is normally the first air tank after the Air Dryer or Air Compressor.

I was wondering about the location of 2 airtanks also, so I could drain them. Have'nt located them yet. Going to Spartan next month and they are going to put remote drain cables tanks.
