Huh....After close inspection, these have been on this coach a long time. They also are nothing like I ever remember seeing were they are the Air Lift.
This does look like air ride but no clue on what to put in them for air pressure.
I don't see anything hooked up as if it was automatic.
The front bags are In the coils.
The rears, have duel bags on both sides. Again, no stickers, no nothing telling me about any kind of pressure...
Will keep looking :-)

We had AirLift bags on our old gasser. Up under the "hood" were some specs, which said max pressure is 100psi, and not to drive with less than 50psi in them. You could drop them below that if going slowly (for example, the previous owner had a steep driveway, so he'd drop the front and pump up the back to avoid scraping), but then once you are on the road, the pressure depends on how you are loaded, etc. The goal is certainly to avoid sitting "tail low."

My Aerbus has air valves mounted in the fender well in the rear.
I presume these to be Air Ride Suspension valves, but have not been able, so far, to find any documentation or instructions of usage for them.

Does anyone have experience with them, that can tell me how they are to be used... or , where documentation is for their use ?

Thanks .... Richard

I found this link up above was very helpful. Pretty much explains what they are, how they work.
I am going with No less than 50lbs and no more than 100 lbs.
Here is the link from above.

OH PLEASE DONT!!! NOT ON THE REARS!!!!

I still have placards on mine...rear are 45 MAX!!! any higher and the body sway will pop them. We generally keep them around 25 0r 30..makes for a nice ride.

The rears are not in the spring...they are to level the coach and control body sway.

I will check my docs but i believe they are Firestone "load Helpers"..or something like that....give me a day or two on that...but keep them below 45!

Thanks and I can more than see that too.
I have two air bags that are just on top of the Leaf springs in the rear.
It makes more sense that they would be used for sway.
The fronts, pretty much the same thing as they are Inside the coils.
I Did find a sticker that says Ride Rite by Firestone.
I checked those rears and zero air pressure. I will go and try to add 45lbs or any as a matter of fact to see if they will hold pressure.
Thank you for your information and help

Our gasser had a compresser and bleed valve available in the cockpit -- and they were definitely not the "snubbers" some coaches have, but true ancillary air bags. Good point about stiffening up the front to improve the ride on a windy day. Fortunately with a DP now things that would have kept my hands a-flyin are calm, three fingers on the wheel events now
