Default Air leak

My low air light started going on and off, air pressure stays good. I found the leak, from the side of the pressure sender. I can't see it but guessing it's from a pressure relief hole of some sort. Is that possible? I assume the sender should be replaced but don't want get involved with that on the road. Can I just cover the hole with rescue tape ?

I don't know which style switch you have, but if it's an LP-3 you might be able to tighten the housing screws. I don't think you're going to have much luck with tape holding a 120 psi air leak. https://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.c...5&d=1222617989

It doesn't look like a lp3 . Can't see the top to tighten the seal. Not sure what the pressure was when I found the leak but I was able to stop it with my finger.

I am having it replaced. He has a call into bluebird to find out if it's normally open or closed. Anybody here know? Apparently he maintains a fleet of bird's. I'm just trying to hurry things up.

Maybe this is the pressure protection valve on the wet tank? There are one or two of them and they leak.

No, he has it off and is going to replace it.
