Hi! When we got home from Florida 2 weeks ago I washed our coach. I power washed it as usual and also reached up as much as possible underneath (the power washer is an electric with a low setting). The next day the front of the coach was down all the way. The rear was up. I started the coach, (cold weather) and the front came back up. It has remained back up for at least a week. I went in it this AM to get something out of it. Came home a little while later and the front is down again. Temps are in the 50's today. Any ideas why the front is taking a flop?? Paul

Well Scott, seeing not many responses yet, I'll take a shot. If it takes a week or so in cold weather, it's probably what I would consider normal. The front seemingly always is the one to drop first, even on single rear axle models. As far as the one day drop after you washed it, that could have been anything from moisture frozen in the ride height valves to leakage at the air bag.
I wouldn't worry about it, cold weather reacts strangely on air suspended vehicles.

Not an answer to your question but do not use a pressure washer on your motorhome. I forced water between the panes of one of my double pane windows with a pressure washer.

Paul, I have no idea but could your coach be bowing to you. After all, you are the man.

Oh, oh! My post should have read, Holly Scott. Hi Paul. Typing and cocktails don't mix.
Lane may have a point, is it bowing or is it sticking its rear up.
