Country coach question

Hi all, I have a question about my 1995 concept, I have a on board air compressor in the compartment just below the drivers seat and is accessed from a door on the front drivers side. The previous owner told me the compressor was upgraded to a larger after market compressor.
The question is what dose this compressor do?
When is it suppose to run?
It is plugged in but no power to outlet so I'm confused as to when it should have power and what this air pressure is supposed operate.
Help please! Thanks

That would be the compressor for your leveling system. When you you hit the leveling button, the compressor will come on first, before the system dumps air for the final leveling. Your coach probably have (had?) the same compressor we have, and it is very slow--takes forever to raise the coach!

Do you need to do the leveling while the engine is still running?
Should compressor have constant power as long as leveling system is on?
I guess the inverter must be on before pushing the leveling button is pushed?
Thanks

I always level before shutting off the engine unless I think the spot is so level that it will not take much air to complete the leveling process. That lets the engine mounted air compressor provide the air necessary to fill whichever bags needs the most air. If my parking spot is already pretty level, I start the leveling process by pushing the 'air' button twice, then shut off the engine and let the system complete the process.

I am at the Country Coach service facility now and I've watched the techs level the rigs as they bring them back to us at the end of the day. The parking area is pretty unlevel front-to-back so our rigs are high in the back end. The techs start the process then high idle the engine to finish up.

I don't run the engine when I level. I hate to leave the engine running more than necessary when we get to a camp site, so I shut the engine off, hit the level button, and proceed with the hook-ups. As far as I know, the compressor has constant power with the leveling system on. We don't shut the inverter off at all--so I haven't tried it with the inverter off. We have a very slow leak on the passenger side, so when the coach sits, it starts listing after a few weeks. I got tired of leveling, so now while the coach sits by the house, I just leave the leveling system on, and it keeps the coach level.

Our hwh air level is not powered by 110v so the inverter is not involved.

The front compressor will also work during the automatic 24 hour adjustment period after level is attained. No switching necessary.

mine is acting just like this. i rarely turn inverter on as it consumes power from battery although i am not using it during the day. i do leveling while engine is on or off.
