I'm in the Alpine Forum checking on a seat issue. Just wanted to know what chassis he had. Tires were brought up as well as safety-steer and many other ideas, just wanted to know chassis. I guess I will just keep my thoughts to myself from now on. This is in response to Algoma's response post to my question.

I just replaced the pressure switches with adapters and connected the gauges to these. This is all behind the instrument panel, at least on the 98-99 models. Later coaches may be different. It was just fortuitous that when I installed the MCU's I could see what was happening when I dumped air and saw that the front bags went to 0 quickly but the rears stopped at 30psi. I just hold the manual dump button to get them empty now. Not a big deal.
Turns out I had a split in one of my front air bags and that the swivel connectors were leaking on both rear bags.
These are the MCU's I installed
SuperSteer Motion Control Units

10-4 Algoma

Thanks for the clarification...that may be what I do as well.

Thanks..
I have tested the completeness of the automatic dump feature by doing it manually afterward. I haven't heard any more air releasing when testing with the manual dump. (The manual dump does work.)

Jimmy:

All Alpines are on Peak Chassis, which were also manufactured by Western RV. Our chassis gives us a good ride and a bullet-proof platform.

You'll find endless discussions here on tires and steering. Believe me!
