Reset Air Suspension?
We just purchased a 2012 Forest River Berkshire Bunkhouse and were pulling out of the drive on our first trip. The ride was extremely rough and the guage showed zero air pressure in the air suspension system. We immediately called the service rep from our dealership but the things he told us did not solve our problem. My research on the internet has not turned up any solutions. I have found possible problem names - ride valve arms stuck, need to reset air suspension - but I can't find any "how to do that" information. Has anyone else had a similar problem and what is the solution?
Thanks in advance for any advice. Looks like our trip is canceled for this weekend anyway.:crying:

There's a ride hieght valve attached to the rear
The valve will be mounted to the frame with a lever on it
Then a rod attaches to axle or air bag plate.
Unhook arm and raise it to fill bags.
Lowering arm or rod will release air or lower bags

Is there a switch on the dash that dumps the bags?
make sure that's in the travel position as well.
That switch normally needs to be dumped to level for camping

Had the same problem once. All we did was lower the levelers once and once they came up the air bags filled. Was told that there is a switch that didn't reset for the air bags.
