2015 MADP tag dump

Anyone out there with Freightliner SLS chassis. Do you hear any sound when tag is dumped? My dash say's tag dumped! But I hear nothing. All my other coaches were Spartan and you could hear when the air was leaving.
Thanks, Daryl

We have a 2015 DS 4018 with Feightliner chassis and I can't hear anything from the inside of the coach when the tag dumps.

No evidence of air moving while standing next to tag with dump button pushed. I think it is not working. Checked for a fuse but could not find one.
Thanks, Daryl

Yes. It was one of the first things I tried to test. I lowered the DS window, hit the button and listened carefully and was able to hear the pressure being dumped.

It's not very loud and I knew what to listen for.

A fall back option might be to have someone outside by the rear of the rig when you hit the button. They should be able to easily pick up the sound and signal you that it is operational.

I have also been able to pick up the sound when I put it from drive into reverse.

Back up to a curb so that the tag tires have some pressure on them. Check the air bag and them dump it, it should collapse. I know mine is working it, but I can't hear it.
