Air fittings... Where is it?

Have a 2008 Mandalay Presidio... Does anyone know if they have air fittings on them? For example... for emergency tire fills.

On my Dutch Star it is under the front hood on the drivers side. I think you mean where to plug in your air hose, that's where my air chuck is.

There may be two, a female for your air hose, and a male for a tow truck driver to pressurize the air system and release the parking brake

If you have air horns, it is likely that they plug into a air manifold in the front. Ours is mounted on the "firewall" in front of the driver. The problem most people, including me, is recognizing it for what it is. Mine looks like a small sprinkler head with threaded plugs in it. When I started, it didn't have anything plugged into it.

The best setup for filling tires is to add a small nipple to the manifold (after you are sure that you have drained the tanks with the lanyards), and then put a brass roller valve on the nipple. This way, your system can be sealed tight. I then put another small nipple and a brass quick disconnect. It works great. I realize that some higher end coaches my already have a setup like this and I've heard about some of those being around one of the front wheel wheels.
