All three are “under the hood” on the left side of the generator on my Freightliner chassis. They are not labeled at all. Pull them in random sequence for 15 sec or so each time I check the generator fluids. So far no brake issues

Stuart, no it does not dump the air bags. Even if you pull them down to close to zero on the gauges. At least it doesn't on my 2017 DS Spartan.

Thank you, do you have a tool you use, I was thinking a awning rod would be a good thinking to get.

I don't have awnings/rod so I just hook a bungee to the loop momentarily.

Awning rod would work perfect if you have one. I bought a 40" Cattle Show Stick, looks like this, which I use to pull the lanyards, also to eliminate crawling while putting jack pads under the coach. Push them in with the blunt end and pull them out with the hook.

Checking on my, new to me 2010 DSDP, on a Spartan Chasis did not see anything behind right wheel well, any other ideas:

I am at a Cummins which is also a Spartan authorized facility and I asked them to show me where the lanyards were located and since he was already under my coach he was pulling them all. Thanks rdfugere for starting this thread because I didn't even know this was something I was supposed to be doing.

I was told that they did not have to be pulled in any order. To just pull them every 6 months or so would be fine and that if I turned my right wheel, it would give easier access as opposed to crawling under the RV. Having said that, it is hard to argue with a PDF file. Thanks Gary for posting.

Well, I happened to be on the phone with Spartan today and decided to ask about draining the air tanks. I was told to pull the Gray 1st (supply tank), then primary and secondary and do this every trip or once a week. Also, to change the air dryer spin filter ever year. Lawd, I have so much to learn. My head is going to explode.

No the air bags are isolated by the Hadley manifold.
