Crawl under the front of the coach on the driver's side. You should find 3 spigots for air. I don't remember which one you want as it has been awhile since I was under there. I want to say it is the outboard one but not sure.

There is usually one as everyone as suggested at the front left bay. If your coach needs to be towed, they need a port to power up the air brakes to be able to move your coach. Just keep looking we are all sure you will find it.

Mine has one in the aforementioned left front cabinet, and also one low in the rear engine compartment. This one was hard to see as it has a small felt bad wrapped around it to keep it clean.

Then I guess the CC boys don't know what they are talking about. I took factory delivery and the tech pointed out the three spigots and said "use this one" for your tire chuck. I don't remember which one it was because I haven't been under the front of the coach in awhile however I have a quick disconnect on it if I ever need it.

My coach has air connections in the engine bay and in front on the drivers side like several other posters indicated they had connections. I would suggest getting an air connection so that you are not right in front of the tires when airing up. Our local Goodyear place airs up truck tires in a cage to prevent injury if one blows.

During our walk thru with our coach, I was also advised that it was this compartment on the driver's side in front of the front tire. Here's a pic of the compartment. I've never used it nor do I have a hose to verify it. The coach is an 05 Intrigue

I saw the same video and actually put together the air system pictured. Was not hard. I do not have the end to plug into the coach air quick connect.

Does anyone know for sure which male quick connect is needed for our coaches?
