Air Bag dump

I have a 2002 National Tradewinds DP I can't seem to find the air bag dump button. Do certain models not have a way to dump the air out of the suspension system?

that is what I have been doing but wasn't sure that was just improperly forcing the air out. Just wondered if there was a switch to lower the MH then using the jacks to level as needed. Is this how other MH do it?

Some like mine and yours came from the factory with "auto dump". The bags dump when you put the jacks down. No lever needed.

Easy to change to a manual dump and inflate if wanted.

The bags deflate by the time the jacks are down. Then no need to inflate until you raise the jacks (do so with the engine running) then they inflate automatically.

Thanks everybody! I think I have been doing it correctly then it just felt like I was forcing the air out when I was raising the coach with the jacks. Thought maybe one of those buttons on the drivers dash was supposed to do it for me.

what would cause them not to inflate? i have the same system as you and mine will not inflate unless i manually push the sensor under the coach.

If your engine is running and you raise your jacks the bags should automatically inflate. You have to wait until your air pressure gauges are at around 110 PSI before you raise the jacks. If you do all that and they do not inflate you have a bad solenoid. A call to Freightliner can verify this. 1-800-385-4357.
