air bags fixed

Told the dealer that there was something wrong with the air bags on my 3010 sunseeker. Bring it in. I did today and it was fixed, Too many washers on the fitting and debris in the air connector. 100Lbs and does not drag in driveway. Whoopee. Still learning this rig through.

If it's like all the other Forester/Sunseeker units with air bags it will leak down and needs constant attention. I added an AirLift Wireless One remote compressor and it works great. It's and easy install.

Don't expect a lot of rear height change...from 5 psi to 100 psi my unit only goes up about 2.5 inches.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

I can't even get air into mine (valves in the compartments, both sides won't take air), maybe it's just debris in the airline or the valves are stuck.

Found a kink in the line on the passenger side airbag where FR installers tied up all the extra line. Lots of line so it was easy to cut out the kink. Also adjusted the valves in the compartment. I also went with a onboard compressor system with gauges in stairwell. Makes life so much easier

I used the AirLift Wireless One. Very easy install.

I have the Airlift analog system. Its a little more work to install but I like the gauges and fill/release buttons in the stairwell
Just an additional thought after adding the Airlift I noticed I wasnt losing as much pressure in the bags in use

In our airbags, the passenger side looses air like 20psi per 2-3 days. What and where do i look for leaks?

The push in connections are junk. Go to Napa buy ferrel fittings, problem solved. I replace mine at the fill valve and air stays in bags over a week.

I've been using the push-in connections from NAPA for years and have never had a problem. They have to be clean and have to have a perfectly square cut when installing. Also, they should be considered a one time use as far as the line goes. When removing one then you should cut of ⅜ inch of the line so there is new line section going into the fitting.
