My Future DP is Listing !!!

So the wife & I make this 500-mile trek to a Rv dealership (nameless for the present) to see a used Newmar DP we want.

Salesman says that we can park in their lot overnight.

Ok. We arrive today and look for our baby. We find it.

OMG! Wish I had a picture. The RV is listing hard to starboard (driver side).

The front driver side tire is down so far that the bottom of the wheel mud flap is touching the ground.

What's going on ???

Flat tire or flat air bag?

Probably a flat airbag. You can either start the engine to see if it inflates and levels off (then listen for a leak or see how long it takes to start drooping) or dump the air in the bags to see if the rest follow.
Could be a leaking bag or valve from that bag.
In any event you'll want it looked at. One leaking bag is not normal

Our Essex is funny about that. Will not drop for 5 days then overnight the drivers side will loose air. Go figure.

Drinking port will get you drunk and make you lean to the left. Drinking starboard won't do anything so you'll be right.

The important one, however, is Red on Right on Return. Narrow, unforgiving channels have a way of enforcing that rule. Learned the hard way. Fortunately the bottom was 4 feet of silty mud not easily rinsed off once the boat was pushed off!!
