Plumbed it into the air dryer, used a shut off valve and a check valve.

Utilized the junction box for the battery heaters to put in a outlet, now I just turn on the battery heater switch inside and the compressor comes on.
May do something for battery heaters, but they were all removed already so I figured this is a convenient spot to get power.

The compressor hangs from a couple of stainless u-bolts and some S-clips. Makes it easy if I want to pull the compressor out. Ran a bungee around it to keep it from banging around.

Ran the DOT air line to compressor and put compressor disconnect end on tubing.

Default Revised Air Dryer Diagram

I went to go back and take a look at the placement of the PCCV Pressure-Controlled Check Valve that is required with the new air dryer, and as either Bob Horner or Jim Morton mentioned it should be placed between the two air tanks in the system.
You replace the existing check valve with the PCCV. I have done that and I will post again with the pictures of that work.

Here is the updated diagram:

Replacing the check valve and installing the PCCV in its location was no easy task.
I am fairly thin and I had a difficult time getting in there and accessing the area. My grey water drain runs right across the area and luckily someone had put a rubber fernco coupling on it, so it was easy to disconnect and pull out of the way.
The air tanks are over the top of the holding tanks and then the fuel tank is right in front of that. So there is very little room to get up to these lines. I also had my pressure switch for these tanks was leaking so that was changed while I was up in there.

Here are some photos:

This shows the new PCCV installed where the old check valve was. It’s the silver shiny bit on the left side of the photo.
