2019 Ventana 4369 Freightliner Chassis Air leaking

When my coach sat for a week after driving it home after delivery, the air in both tanks had leaked down to 0 psi pressure. Cranked it up and let them fill up and went on a weekend campout. While parked for just two days camping, the tanks both leaked down to 50psi. Is this the norm for Freightliner Chassis's?
Doesn't seem right to me.

Well within the specs.

The spec is less then 2 PSI per minute. If it holds for more then an hour, its OK.

Drove Semi's for twenty plus years including LTL City work where the tractors got parked overnight for usually 12-14 hrs...........most tractors would go to 0-30lbs overnight. Would have to let them run to build air pressure to drain the air tanks. You have nothing to worry about at all.
If you can't get past this common and normal situation drop a few bucks with a truck repair shop to check it. Mechanics love a easy job.

2019 Ventana 4369 Freightliner Chassis Air leaking

While losing air while parked is normal, it is not something that has to happen. My last coach dropped to thirty pounds or so in six hours. My Dutch Star will hold most of itís air for a week or more.

Most air systems leak, some faster than others.
