Air Bag Issue

When the wife and I were in MPLS our air bag system failed. We contacted Freightliner and Good Sam and managed to "air up" so we could get home.

I got out my HWH manual for the air level system and went through step by step and got to the last step of knowing that the problem was not in the HWH system but in the Freightliner system.

When I took the coach in repair, I told them what I found and they evidently discarded any useful information I gave them and troubleshot the problem and came back the level brain was dead. I told them they were wrong and they insisted no, the factory and they had discussed it an indeed it was the brain. I told them good luck but don't be surprised when it doesn't fix the problem.

3 weeks later, IM told the brain failed and it took out a module downstream. When I asked what it was they told me it ruined the dump valve which I had told them was the problem in the first place.

They still have the coach and the new module will be here on Friday. Anyone got any ideas? I told the DW she had to go with me to prevent from ending up in jail over this.

I even copied the troubleshooting information and left it with them.

Thanks for any advice.
