Mobile Spartan Chassis Phoenix area

Any recommendations for a mobile RV service that is good with Spartan Chassis in west Phoenix metro area. Parked at RV resort. Front air bags loose air when brake pedal is held on. Had issue with a value in the rear air system last summer that did the same thing. Could be doing again or new issue. Thanks. 2010 Newmar Dutch Aire Mountain Master

I'd start by contacting Spartan to get a diagram of your air brake/suspension system. I have to ask, why are you holding the brake treadle down for long periods of time? Also, have you drained the tanks and made sure your air dryer is working? A bad valve in the back could have been a warning that moisture or dirt in the system is fouling the valves. Can't help you with a Phoenix recommendation, but I'm sure there are folks on here who know who to contact.

Holding brake down while waiting at stop light is what I meant. Good idea to start off with Spartan call first. Haven't drained tank. Away from coach this week yet but will see if I can detect an air leak anyplace and go from there. Thank you.

If possible take it to Tolleson Freightliner or Masseys Diesel, both good shops.

Lp5151. It was a broken brass fitting on an air line going to a quick release valve on the front air system on my coach. It was located above driveshaft over the drive axle in between chassis frame. Had to drop driveshaft to get to it. Don't really know if vibration or something hit it or what. It apparently was not well secured either.
