My air dryer is tucked between the radiator and rear tires. It is shown in the attached schematics.

Six years ago I found it very worthwhile to read this M380 section from oldest post all the way forward. Took a couple of weeks then, and would take a lot longer now, but the increase means it would be even more educational!

Bought my M380 in October. Over the winter, I did exactly as Don suggested by reading every M380 post. In addition, I copied what I considered to be key posts and pictures into an indexed Microsoft OneNote file so they are available on my laptop and iPad regardless of where I am. Yes, it takes time. And even though a lot of the initial reading didn't make complete sense to me, having that background info has proven invaluable as I get my hands dirty in exploring/exercising all the systems.

For me, the key benefit is just recognizing when I'm into an issue that someone else has solved (and written-up). Usually I have to re-read the relevant thread(s) to get the detail, but at least I know where to look for the answer. If I'm still uncertain or confused, then I ask the journeymen M380 gang.

Good luck with the learning -- it's certainly keeping my brain challenged!!

Care to share?

There is a current thread lamenting how another BB model’s owners employ an email chain for their “corporate knowledge” instead of the WOG. That method can only archive information for a short time. One of the nice things about the M380 (besides your fellow BB owners) is our WOG M380 database. Portability when off grid would improve that even more .

Van
I'd love to share it (with a few caveats). Why don't I start a new thread with these posts copied into it so everyone understands what I have and we don't lose the discussion in an "air dryer" thread. I'm heading out for the evening so will probably be tomorrow before I get back to WOG.
