Default Isri Air Seat

I’m waiting to hear back from a dealer on parts availability but while I’m trying to spend money on the seat I need info on how it should operate.
I have the seat off the frame and the air bag inflates and the frame rises as it should. When I put my foot on the frame and give it a push it seems to go down rather easily. With even my 195 lbs. I think I’ll be bottomed out all the time and not get any benefit from the air ride. Any thoughts on how easily it should depress?
Thanks

Bob, I've got you by about 90 lbs. and my seat holds me up. I have bottomed out a couple of times by getting caught off guard on a pretty good bump, but part of mine is I know the tag pressure on my coach is too high, which puts too much weight on the steer axle causing the porpoise action making it bottom out. That will get addressed soon. Like Mike and Randy said, it goes down easy and then comes back up to the proper position.

I worked on mine after my first long trip a few weeks ago. It was too soft and bouncy. Even bottomed out a lot. The way to adjust it is too move the 2 adjustment screws on the actuator cam that will add or subtract air from the air bag based on the position of the seat. I had to mess with both top and bottom screws to get a good ride. I am 235# and when I was done it was like a new seat. It did take 2 small tweaks after I was on the road to get it correct.

sounds like a great seat but also sounds like they only sell in volume

On the inboard (right) side of the seat you should see a leveling switch. The seat will go up to a certain point and stop. When you add weight to the seat it opens the valve and adds air pressure to the airbag. It takes it a few seconds to adjust.

If you can't find the lumbar switches for the right side. You could probably plug those and keep the air suspension part of the seat working. I had to replace the lumbar airbags (I just used universal ones) but they don't feel like they do much to me (again I have universal ones so that could be why they don't work well).

Here is the link to the parts list and diagrams if you don't already have it.

The two valves on the outboard side are leaking. After a couple of wasted calls to dealer recommend by the manufacturer I finally ordered a lumbar kit from Surbarban Seats for $116. They didn’t stock the kit and had no idea what’s in it. But that’s what the manufacturer said I needed. 2-3 weeks from now I may have some parts. I’ll let you know if I have a working seat.
I cant understand why Bluebird used so many parts from other parts of the world. Why didn’t they just use Chinese stuff like everyone else.
I really appreciate all the responses in trying to soften up my ride.
