Excess Slope

I have a 98 Intrigue. When I attempt to level the coach the HWH will release air first then the compressor comes on. It runs for a bit but nothing happens. After running for a while the excess slope light comes on. The air bags will not inflate, What ever the problem is it has to be common to the entire system since none of the airbags will inflate.

Steve,
The engine needs to be running while leveling. The little aux compressor in the bay under the driver is only to maintain level after it has been leveled.

When the slope is excessive, I do not dump the air bags, I let the HWH system level the coach from ride height.

Sounds like your small Dayton compressor can't supply enough air within the allotted time limit that HWH programmed into the leveling brain. Mine did that and I replaced the pump with a Viair 330 C-IG pump. It has 3 times the capacity at 100 psi as the Dayton pump that came on my coach. It has a max current draw of 12 amps while the Dayton has a max draw of 10 amps. This meant I didn't have to pull new wires and fuse the circuit at more amps.

It was an easy change out but I did have to buy one fitting to make the connections. The Viair has not failed me yet. But then I haven't been in any really unlevel sites. I do know that the new pump will level me where the old pump would not.

I leave the motor running till I have to level out. Also if I find myself going up to the max for the air bags I might throw a 1.5" or more under the tires so it only has to lift in the midrange if the temp is going to go up and down a lot during our stay. That way the pump can keep up with the changes easily.

Well I leveled it yesterday with the engine running and it worked just fine. What I did find is a small solenoid valve at the bottom of the Parker Desiccant canister that was leaking air when the compressor was running. I believe the solenoid valve is there to release the residual air pressure in the canister so the compressor isn't trying to start under the air pressure in the air bags. So I'm going to replace the desiccant canister and solenoid valve and see how things work then.
