04 eagle air ride

looking for some advice. I have an 04 Eagle. I just recently pulled it out of storage and took it for some service and noticed immediately that the ride was horrible with the front end bouncing at anything it ran over almost to the point of not being able to drive. The service center indicated a leak in the air ride line and repaired it. The ride home was perfect. I just got it out on the road again and it rode just as bad as before it was fixed. I filled it with fuel and the ride home was perfect. I did mess with the air release after fueling. I am running at about 125 lbs front and back. Any ideas? As a relatively new owner from alst year I never had to touch the air ride. Is the air release on the dash for that purpose? If so what should I be running at? Also it seems to keep wanting to refill even after I lower it?

Hello and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
What leveling system is on the coach? Power Gear/Valid? Have you tried Auto leveling the coach? If it does not auto level correctly you may have lost the zero point and need to do a reset. Please give us as much info as possible to be able to better help you.

Frightliner checked our single and gross tire weights which recommended 120 psi in the front and 90 psi in the rear tires. While our ride was good before, the new pressures with a front end allignment make a good ride fantastic. Only cost $70.00 and was money well spent. We have a 2011 TOUR with tag axil.

Your problem sounds like the air pressure in the front suspension is not
coming up.

Thanks for some of the ideas. I have an Equalizer leveling system. Since my post I have spoken with freightliner and they seem to think my front leveling valve for t air bags may be intermittently working, at times overfilling. Sounds like a service call to me!
