Air suspension learning experience: Bottom line: the air bags will not inflate without prior pushing the store button. I've been using this coach for three and a half years and still learning.
I had deflated the bags to make it easier to reach the roof line for work. Upon startup the bags would not inflate and chaos prevailed. After hours of waiting for a mobil RV service to affect a repair I finally figured it out. Apparently I had never deflated the bags without depoying the jacks. Even though the jacks were not extended, I must hit the "store" button before the bags inflate. I was lucky that the RV guy couldn't get to me earlier. I was also grateful that I declined being towed into the Frieghtliner shop. I knew that if I was towed to the shop that it would sit there for a few days. I had to leave for "Mule Days" no later than Monday so the presure was on.
After reading many posts on this site it caused me to rethink the problem.
Thank you all for the insight that caused the brain to click into gear.

Hi Cliff:

Don't feel bad, I bought mine about the same time you bought yours and I did not know that either.

Thanks for sharing this information.

Sorry about all of the misspelling. Guess I'm just too anxious to get it posted.
