Air hose attachment

When I had the dealer install the quick connect to that little manifold up on the firewall they also installed a shutoff valve before the quick connect fitting just in case the quick connect starts to fail the integrity of the air system stays intact.
Also, I had to be towed recently and the tow operator was able to backfeed the air system thru this quick connect rather than going to the air tanks and installing a fitting.
Good Luck,
AREA51

Alright now.... One says "no" that's not the place I install the quick-connect and another says. "Yes" that's it....

Totally confused.... I thought that I would simply remove one of the plugs in the picture and replace it with a quick-connect.... Now, am I right or wrong????

I have always seen the quick conect on the air tank, or plumbed from the tank to somewere like a bumper. But this is on big rigs.
There are usually several plugged orfices in the air tanks and one of those could be replaced with a valve and quick connect. I would be carefull tieing in to manifolds, you could have a conection leak and it could affect brakes, air springs, or something else.
If manuf. doesn't have a recomendation else were I would sugest the tank.

How about this.... Could someone possibly take a picture of what theirs looks like in the gen/firewall area of their Berkshire and attach it for me.... I can compute so much better if I have something to look at.....

Also - some of you have said you had an additional connect in your basement... Can't locate one in my 2008 Berkshire 360...

We have one in the left full rear bay, but it's not for air, it's set up off the propane tank to hook grill to. my air quick connect is by the generator, drivers side up high.

I'll try to take a picture tomorrow before we hit the road. I bought a husky 125 psi compressor. It does a faster job of filling my 2011 Berkshire tires.

I think some people are mistaking the gas quick connect in the basement for an aircoupler.

I sent you a privat message. I guess you did not get it. You profile is set up to not receive emails so I cannot mail the file directly to you. If you are logged in you should be able to access the file. It is a PDF file and you will need a PDF reader.

As for the connector in the basement in 2009 Forest River began putting in propane connection so you could run a grill. It is not in the 2008 model and you should not have it.

Again be carful when you access the air system that all the air is bled out. It normally runs at 120 PSI and will hurt you if you remove a access point under pressure.

Do not tap in at the tanks. The manifold in front by the compressor is for our use and is the only plase we the customer should tap the air system.

THere is no need to carry another compressor as another user suggest. The coach works great.
