Firestone Air Ride

Have a 2014 Sunseeker 2860DS and the Firestone Air Ride shocks will not keep air. I read that it could be where the lines are connected at either end. Has anyone else had any issues with them keeping air?

On my 3051s the bags lost 30 psi over the winter storage of 6 1/2 months , I can live with that easy! Easy to check for leaks with soapy water mix and spray bottle, you could have something simple as a loose connection or a faulty schrader valve.

How much do they lose and how quickly? Some loss is normal. If you are losing 10 pounds a week that's not unusual. 10 pounds a day is not.

In my opinion 10psi a week is a defect somewhere in the installation or the parts on a 3 week trip you would have to air up 3 times or deal with the poor driving air chucks on the road usually won't fit have to carry your own air just a poor product all the way around if it can't be fixed but it should be fixable I lost over 20psi in 15 days on the road

I agree it would be nice but I've had air bags on 4 different vehicles (pickups to rvs) and they all lose air. The amount varies and just like tires, they lose air faster when it's cold. . I carry my own air anyway. But for the airbags I added an onboard compressor....not hard to install but involves a lot of squeezing around underneath. But after 4-6 hours of torture, it's set and I just top them off from the comfort of the cab each morning.

That is the way to go for sure but the airbags shouldn't leak excessive I will post what they find on mine also mine seems to leak faster when it rolling I guess movement bouncing

Just wanted to mention that camping world told me that they lost about 27 psi every time they checked the airbags that's why I think mine are leaking I think new techs are needed at camping world or at least a new guage

Must use the same gauge the NFL uses for game balls
