air bag leak

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I hope you're having a great new year. I have a 2011 Monaco Knight and I've noticed that the air bags are leaking down. I started it yesterday and let them fill to about 115# and today there down to about 100#, by tomorrow they'll be down to 80# or so.

I talked to Monaco and they said the system was not designed to be airtight but this seems like to much leakage and how do you go about finding a leak?

Your thoughts and experiences are appreciated.

By the way the front and rear all leak at the same time and amount. Again Monaco said they are all connected to the same system

Monaco is correct, while some will say their systems don't leak down, they are few and far between. What you show as the amount of leak down is well within acceptable limits. Having drove commercially for 20+ years I can say that every truck I drove would leak down at least 50% over night. The Federal Department of Transportation seta a limit of leak down with the brakes applies at 5 lbs. in 2 minutes or less as acceptable.
