Front Air Bag Solenoid

Where would I find the front air bag solenoid on an 03 Dynasty? MH front air bags will air up but not to ride height, thinking it's possibly the solenoid. At first, the MH front bags would not even air up at all but after dumping and raising several times I did get the bags to partially fill. The airing up noise does not sound as normal either. Rear bags seem fine. Thank you for any information.

I am not 100% sure but I believe it is right behind the front axle.

Do you have air leveling or hydraulic leveling? If hydraulic and RVA then your dump valve should be on the firewall accessed from generator door ( I think). It should be a blue MAC valve. I would suspect the ride height valve rod/rubber ends (located in the center of the front axle) being damaged or the valve arm out of adjustment first unless you are loosing a lot of air from the dump valve.

Thank you for all replies. I have HWH air level only, no hydralic jacks. We are now suspecting the ride height valve arm rod/rubber ends being damaged or out of adjustment. I am not losing air from dump valve. Our cat's harness/leash got hung up on something under the MH near that center area a while back. We got the cat's harness unclipped from the leash but I had to go through the generator area with an extension type rod to unwind the wound leash as it was hung up on something from that area. If that is where the ride height valve is located, this is a possible cause for the issue.

Depending on how far off the front height is off I would not drive it far. The ride height is easy to adjust but be sure to raise using the manual leveling and block up or put stands underneath. Repair the damage and bring to ride height( travel mode) to do final adjustment. MH should be on level ground. Pin the ride height arm with drill bit to remove the hysteresis temporarily. Use 7/16 nut driver to adjust arm. Repeat airing down then up until adjustment within 1/8" of specs.

when playing with this why under the RV .. dont kill your self

to many sad storys when some one pulls the ride height arm off why under the RV and even one with the guy having it on blocks .. after the full load of the RV on the block the blocks did not hold

with the arm in your hand there is nothing any one can do to get the RV off of you

i only get under my RV with all the air out of the bags so i know it cant come down any more then when i started

Thank you to all for replies. RV tech has been called due to the safety concerns with being under the MH.
