95 Dynasty Aux Air Connection

I'm starting to feel really dumb. After reading all the posts about where the air hose connector is supposed to be, I still can't find it.
Previous owner left me with a nice air hose and tire chuck, but the only air connection I can find is passenger side of generator and it's a MALE fitting w/ ball valve.
Any Ideas?
Thanks, Jim

Mine is in the upper left corner above the propane tank in that compartment (passenger side front most bay)

The air fitting you're looking for is inside the rear engine door, left top corner. I know, kind of a silly place for it, but that's where it is. I've been threatening for the last few years to add a hose to it that I can get at without having to open the engine bay door. To date, that hasn't happened. Oh well.

The air fitting up front behind the generator door is to pressure air into your coach system. I use it all the time to air the coach up with my shop air compressor when the coach has been sitting inside my shed to lessen the diesel smoke contamination in the building. A tow truck can use that same fitting to air up your system to be able to tow your coach. Of course, that will never have to happen.

Thanks for the input guys,... Papa Jim with the same old coach had it right. I missed it because it has a black rubber dirt protector over it and it blends with everything else around it. Thanks again, Jim

Yep, Papa Jim is right on the money. I also use the male stud occasionally to air up the coach with my shop compressor when I don't want start the engine just for that: but watch the pressure, and make sure to stop filling the system once the air dryer purges! That's the governor's signal that the system is full and the compressor should stop building air, but of course that won't stop the flow from a shop compressor. (Or set your shop air to a low enough pressure to not cause the air dryer to purge.)

FWIW when filling from a portable compressor I have an inline dryer to keep what moisture I can from the system.

Good point. I do have a dryer on my shop air, but not everyone (especially portables) have one.

My 1994 Signature does not have a fill port, but I am going to add one.

Does it connect between the compressor and air drier so that it passes through the air drier before entering the tanks?

It may vary between coaches, but mine does NOT pass through the air dryer: it goes directly to the main tank. In fact, mine doubles as the tank drain, as it includes a small ball valve I can open to drain any moisture from the tanks. When I open that valve, the tank drains through that male connection stud. I have that drain valve n front for the main tank, and another valve (with no stud) back by the hitch to drain the rear tank.
