Air Bags deflating- Now fixed
Sometime last year I asked on this forum about issues with my air bags deflating after a few hours while others said theirs would stay up for days. While having work done to fix my genset starter problem, the mechanic heard a slow air leak at the right front ride-height valve, so I had him work on it. My hearing is poor so I likely would have missed it even if I was real close, which I have been many times.
He found a cracked brass fitting on the valve assembly. He replaced it and put teflon tape on every fitting and lo and behold, I went over 24 hours later today and the bags are still up. There also had been a whistling sound when the bags would air up and I think that is gone but can't tell since the bags are staying up for now. I will see how long they will hold air. I used to have to wait about 3-5 minutes for the bags to air up after it had set for more than a few hours- very annoying.
