Default Leveling Valve for an 86?

Making plans to pick up a nice 86 FC35RB in Michigan this spring. Owner reports the leveling system works, but he recommends a spare leveling valve for our 4,200 mile trip back to Alaska. Looking for recommendations on a part # and/or supplier? Thanks in advance!

Try Haldex-Midland #9005-4007 but order three, like head lights it's best to replace all not just one. You have 2 on the rear and one on the front. The rear controls side to side while the front control the front ride height. Be safe & good luck.

I’d suggest adding a ride height control rod to you list.

Front @ center of axle and both sides of rear axle. There is a dump valve connected to each one. The height control valves are reasonable $ but they are very proud of the dump valves.

Keep in mind that working under a coach is dangerous - the coach must be properly supported before you get under it. The coach can come down and crush you! NOTE: Leveling jacks do not qualify as proper support!
