Ride Height Time

Recently test drove a new 2018 DSDP. After starting, air pressure built up in the normal amount of time. But the suspension took forever to reach ride height so we could be on our way. Salesman said it must be an issue that needs attention. Drove another identical coach and it did the same thing. This is the first Spartan chassis I have driven. Anyone have the same experience? Is this normal for Spartan chassis?

Had they both been sitting awhile with no air in tanks?

I would imagine they both had been parked for a while. My only comparison is my current coach (FTL chassis) which reaches ride height in just a couple of minutes after tanks fill and this is after it has been parked for a few weeks. Since this occurred on two brand new coaches I assume that this must be normal. It just took a really long time to the point we thought something must be wrong. Thanks for the insight.
