Could be a vacume leak from dash air system?

I was about 15 feet away and sounded like if you open a compressor valve and the sound of air escaping or if u had a tank full of air the sound of that

Ford chassis with no air bags, my guess a tire check tire pressures. Iíve had a valve stem start leaking while parked.

I did not smell propane. Thatís one of the first things I checked tank is still half full. Is there a chance that the release valve for the hot water tank released? I opened the door and there was no water signs in the compartment. The sound was pretty loud as thought air was being bleed off.

Refrigerant hose bust? Look around for oil on the refrigerant lines.

Also did check both outer tire a minute ago and they were at 94psi so good there also check hot water tank to see if it maybe tripped but the plastic plug was still in place. Weather scenario was 83 at 9am and the day before the same it doesnít(MH) get but couple hours of direct sun a day. PS. Did I tell you that the dang blood thirsty mosquitoes are horrible here in southern Michigan

Maybe the hissing sound was your blood being sucked out.
