I use 1/4". Everything in my shop is 1/4" and all of the auxiliary fittings in the coach are 1/4". The brake air lines may be larger but I have not had occasion to do anything to them.

FWIW

Glad you got Kevin's contact info. Best to review his offerings with him as far as setting up a sort of retainer for knowledge services!

https://www.google.com/search?q=Hald...ed=0CAcQ_AUoAg

Here are pictures of a Haldex Height Control Valve typically found on many CC's. (This is for sure the 2002 say 2005/6 series for Allure and Intrigue. Your Affinity could be different.)

Most coaches have two valves on the rear, and one valve on the front. Look at these pictures, and you will see one that has metal wire arms in the picture. Many times you buy a replacement valve, and just shift the arms from the old to the new.

Hope this is not needed, and it sorts it's self out by going thru a few cycles.

Best,
Smitty

Smitty: Thank you for the info and also for providing the link. Where is the height control valve located?
I really look forward to contacting Kevin - I have a ton of questions to ask him.
As far as the height goes. I started it today and played with the HWH Controls - level the coach and took the key out. It seems to be OK.
I want to thank every one for offering suggestions.
Regards to all!

On our 04 era Allure, the front height control valve is easier to access from crawling in from behind the passenger front wheel. About 1/3 of the way in towards the middle, tucked up above the bottom of the coach. Sometimes everything gets coasted with the same color of debris from traveling, and spotting the wire hanger type wire levers is easier then seeing the valve.

But, sure could be different in your coach. Suspect that your CC Manuals will give you and indication of where all the valves are.

@ srh. Kevin is in Oregon so he is west coast time. Forgot to tell you that before. He will answer his phone at any time. Butch the technical guy owns an RV shop in Lakeland Florida. If you decide to go with their service, Kevin will be your contact for parts mainly and Butch will be the guru who will walk you through fixing stuff.

Smitty: Thank you very much - I'll keep that in mind. I'll look at the manual too.

Stratman50th: Thank you, too, that is very helpful. I didn't know Kevin and Butch worked together. I called around 11 .a.m. E.Std.T. and left a message for Kevin, but haven't heard from him.
