We have a 2006 Newmar Ventana 39Ft. I bought it new 2 months ago, so I am a new-be. My question-- I have rear air suspension, how much air will typically bleed-off after the coach sets for awhile. I saw ours drop about 3 inches in 2 weeks. I am concerned because the clearance from the stone-flap is about 2 inches while running. I called Newmar and they couldn't give me much of an answer. I was told, with the bags fully depleted it would drop around 10 inches!!! I think there should be a reasonable amount of bleed-off with time. Any help would be appreciated

Air bags operate as a bladder on an aluminum piston. Some leakage over time is acceptable. As per your description, I see nothing to worry about.
