Air Down

I made some blocks to put under my jacks for when I leave my coach stored. I wanted to try them out yesterday but realized I don't know how to air down the bags without autoleveling also. I did get it to work but I was hitting buttons left and right with alarms going off.

Anybody know the correct procedure to air down?

Why would you want to deflate the air bags when you store the unit? The air bags are designed to be inflated.

Cajun,
I just put the blocks under the jacks and eventually the air will bleed out of the bags and the coach will settle on the blocks. It may take a couple of weeks but I didn't think it was necessary to fully deflate the air bags all at once.

You can push the auto level. After a few seconds hit any other button. It continues the deflate but will stop the jacks. It has worked for me.

Air Down

EJM I work 2 weeks away from home, then two weeks off at home. My bags are usually deflated when I get back home. It's not good for the bags to deflate and be sitting empty with all the weight of the coach on them. Hence the blocks. I made them to be about an inch shorter than where the jacks are when the bags are aired up. When they start bleeding down they will contact the blocks keeping the weight of the coach on the jacks instead of the empty air bags.

Tom mine do the same I just wanted to test my blocks to make sure they would hold together

klucas, thanks. I knew that was covered in my PDI, but I forgot what the guy said.
