Hello All,
Went looking for the solenoids which control the air bags as part of the leveling system. Think they are located in the last compartment on passenger side, where the air cleaner is. If that is not correct please let me know, because I need to figure out why my front air bags are not dumping air.

My thought was to make sure that the correct signals are at least getting to those connections, then, trace them forward, and see if there is a loose connection.

My HWH compartment is so crowded with wires running every which way, I am going to assume, the wiring is correct, and hopefully is a stuck solenoid or a relay. The fuses seem to all be working as everything else about the HWH works ok. Thanks for this great forum to discuss this beasts.

Monty,

Each solenoid is located on the frame rail close to the air bag it dumps, there are four. Just follow the air line from the airbag and you will find them, As I remember, they are all located on the inside of the frame rails.

Dale, thank you and I figured if anyone knew it would be you. Hopefully you got the rental taken care of and are back to retirement. 10 months and counting. We won't make the rally in SoCal, this year, but hopefully there will be one closer early next year or in the spring we can attend. Fuel prices are coming down, but they really need to shed 1 - 1.50 for us to really travel like we used to. Otherwise, it's stay in our neck of the woods, until we retire, then just take it easy when we do move. Still trying to get HH to give us hot water, still working with the same shop, should have a call tomorrow.

May your roads all be safe, full of pleasent memories, and good company and great friends.
