One compressor supplying two separate circuits: Primary and Secondary. Each circuit has a separate air pressure gauge.

I tend to probably over-worry and research every little thing that comes up on my coach. My secondary air tank always takes longer to come up to pressure, but never quite comes up to the same high pressure of the primary tank. When I hit the brakes the pressure in the secondary tank always drops a little. I just assume it's how it's all suppose to work so it's not on my list of worries at the moment.

You have one engine driven air compressor. Up to 3 tanks. A wet tank supplied right from the compressor and a primary tank for rear brakes and a secondary tank for the front brakes all supplied from the wet tank. The gauges on the dash should have two separate gauges or one gauge with two different colored needles . Both gauges need to fill up to about 125 to 130 psi before compressor cut out happens. Compressor cut in is set around 100 psi give or take a few psi. Both tanks should fill at the same time and with in a minute to compressor cut out

Pressure in my front tank gets to 105 max. I probably have an issue?

I would go over to the Spartan chassis forum and have the conversation about appropriate air pressure.

Ditto, that is how we learn.
