Air dump

When I dumped the air last on my 2000 Safari Serengeti it made popping noises. It jarred the MH. I always dump it before leveling. I was on a pad which was almost level. Any suggestions why this would happen. Should I even dump the air on short stays? Thanks.

Maybe your brakes are not holding tight. When you dump the air, the suspension tends to rotate downhill.

It's fairly normal for the air bags to make a popping sound when being inflated as they are unfolding. It could be yours just make the sound when being compressed. As long as they work, I would not worry about it.

For one night stays, I don't dump the air, if the site is near level , just stabilize with the levelers. I can put up with entry step height for a night.
Less time to air up in the morning.

I have a Rambler endeavor I found that my jacks work better when I don't dump the air
