2015 2861DS Air Helper Springs Question

I have a 2015 2861DS. While installing the TPMS and metal valve stems, I noticed that the RV have Air Helper Springs. That was not explained to me during PDI. When they lifted the RV today, I noticed the bottom portion of the 2-level air bags were collapsed (no air). I was reading the manuals today. It stated that "it is recommended that the vehicle not be lifted by the frame, as over-extension may occur, resulting in damage to the helper springs. However, should it become necessary to raise the vehicle by the frame, deflate both air helper completely".

So my question is, Is there a switch somewhere in the RV that will let me inflate/deflate those air bags? The air bag manual mentioned to at least keep a Minimum of 20PSI, but DO NOT go beyond 100 PSI.

I found it. There are 2 outlets (1 from each side of the RV).
