any idea what this is?

Hello all, I found a valve with mac written on it that connects to my air lines and seems to lead to the area of the front door. It is on the passengers side of the front compartment of my 2009 dutchstar. It seems to leak some air out of the breather valve on the front (only found leak with soapy water). I am trying to track down air leaks as the rear of the motorhome seems to sink after an hour of travel. I have replaced the air leveler valve in the rear and checked the rear for leaks. If anyone knows if a small amount of leakage from this valve is ok or what the valve does please let me know.

Diagram show that it is a 12 volt pressure switch. Might control line pressure to bags

My guess would be a valve to dump the air bags.

It is the valve the activates the door lock at the top, front of the entry door. The thing that makes the loud clack when you press in the break release.
