air suspension problems

We have a 2008 Charleston that we purchased last month. On our drive back from Fl - NY we stopped a couple of days in NC. Upon leaving NC we experienced horrible bumpy almost bucking ride. Stopped immediately and phoned customer service. They had me drive forward and brake several times. This did the trick. Have been home for over a month and the coach has been parked. Again today tried to take it for a drive and the exact same thing happened. The driving forward and braking did the trick. But it seemed as though it was swaying quite a bit in the wind.
Anyone else had this issue? No dealers close by but plan to check with a technician on Tuesday.

My 2009 had this issue since new. It would take up to 15 minutes before the second air tank to stop buzzing. Last time out it stopped altogether, crawled underneath while it was running and found the brake dryer release safety valve had failed, blowing out all the air. $20 later and its better than new now. I found the part number on this forum, and a truck repair place had it in stock, if you have time you can order it on ebay for like $15.
