Air suspension

I've noticed that my 08 MADP seems to be higher in the front than in the rear when I'm road ready. Is it supposed to be this way? Noticed it coming home a week ago after a stop. Pretty sure it has looked level before our last trip. Trying to stay on top of things before they are a major issue.

Check your chassis manual, it will tell you how to measure for proper ride height.

That happened once on my Entegra. The tech told me that a rear air valve stuck. We dumped air and re aired. We pushed the All retract button on the HWH levelers, and the coach aired up normal. Contact your chassis manufacturer to see if there is an easy fix. Good luck.

Have been trying to get my parking pad done and got the carport built. Everything is just about done. When I get the coach to the new parking spot I will try that. Hopefully Wednesday.

I've noticed my front psi almost always higher than rear, and rear slower to air up when i start the engine. Haven't done a visual comparison outside.
