The bad news is...... airlift no longer makes or sells the manifold I have (bought in 2009) so I can't replace it. They will sell me a "refurbished" manifold for $200+. Or rebuild mine for $75+.
So I think I'll try and refurbish mine myself. I can still use my bags with the Schrader valves. BTW, the new bags they sent me have Goodyear stamped on them and a built it jounce. Old bags didn't have that. New one are called airlift 5000 Ultimate! Wow. Lol.

I have Airlift wireless setup as well and also installed a Schrader valve in case the compressor should ever quit. Mine are stamped "Goodyear" as well.

Hey. My compressor blew out in 3 years but they're cheap. I found d exact replacement for $44. The bags are lifetime. But the darn manifold is expensive, 2 year warranty, and now unavailable. Loved it while it worked. Schrader valve now. No problem.
