1998 Airbus questions

I have 1998 Airbus that's new to me. it looks like Ride-rite air bags have an air control system on board but I don't know where the controls or the compressor are.
i have PSI gage on the dash and a silver knob under it. not sure if I push or pull it, or what it does. Also have a vacum gage that i thing might be for the brakes. it's a 460 Ford engine ( gas of course ) I've got manuals ordered but they're not here yet.

If you go here Ride Rite Air Bags | Air Bag Suspension Kits | Quality Bumper
they show 3 different air systems for the bags with installation pdf's you might get some ideas as to what you have. On my 98 Aerbus I had the bags but had to fill them manually. Vacuum gauge is probably just to show engine vacuum which you can use to get best mileage as brakes are normal hydraulic type.

Personally if it were mine and new to me I would have the brake fluid flushed as a precaution.

I have a rexhall too and the bags are firestone. tag sez max 90 pound and never less then 20 pound. It sez for leveling motorhome when one side is loaded heavier then the other. The two pressure filler valves are in the cross piece that supports the two house batteries behind the basement door to the batts and gen.
