Air Bags

The wife and I took the rig out for a drive this past weekend to run her up to temp and do a spring shakedown cruise. I parked the rig but didnt dump any air. I noticed last night that the top of the wheel well is even with the top of the tire, like when the levelers are down. Normal running, about 5-6 inches above the tires up front. However my levelers are up and I dont remember the coach sitting so low. I thought the air bags held the air until you put the levelers down and dump the system. Is this normal and I just havent been looking at the rv for awhile.

The air bags will lose air by them selves over time. But in your situation, it seems that you are losing air more quickly than usual. I would run the coach and so that the air bags fill up and look at it again in a few days. If the same thing happens you may want to get it checked.

Try running the coach till both air tanks are full. Turn the the power on to the jacks and press the raise all jacks button. - That should fill the bags.
