"Active" Suspension?

Reading a recent post about coaches with air leveling systems got me to thinking. Do coaches with these systems utilize them for "active suspension" while driving?

In other words... when cornering, does the system try to pump more air into the outboard bags to reduce roll and "lean" the coach into the turn? Or, do all air suspension rigs do this via the ride height adjustment?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Short answer is yes they do. We have the Hadley system, and I can hear the air going into and out of the bags on curves or highly crowned roads.

You know, my coach makes the air sound around curves, and it never occurred to me that's what it was doing!
