Air Hose Connect

Does anyone not have an air hose quick disconnect on their DP? I can't find one if I do have one.

Thanks!!

My Dutch Star has 1 on the drivers side, inside the generator bay above on the outside of the generator slide.

The small storage compartment left front is a air block that you can make a connection at. It is in the same place as the road side fuses.

If you can't find one , and can locate the air horn solenoid, that may be the easiest spot to install one.
As described by other members, mine is above the gen set on a manifold with the air horn solenoid.
I can post a picture if you'd like.

Mine has two. One in the front in the generator area and one in the rear. Both have quick disconnects.

I have two in the front one supplied air and one for emergency air, and two in the rear next to the tow hitch.
One is so that you can air up your tires or anything else you wish. We also use it to air up ATV tires when we need to. The other connection is for when,if you need to be towed. It should supply air pressure so the brakes will release.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I was just curious if I was the only person without one. I guess I will have to have one installed.

Just FYI. I have one in the small baggage compartment by the driver's seat. However, I bought a PorterCable air compressor, 150 psi from Lowes at about $160.00. It is light, added a Milton tire filler and another length of air hose to make use easier. My tire pressure needs to be maintained at 125 psi so this solution works well. IMO this would make life easy and when at home nail gun use is a great option.

If you have a DP with air brakes, then you very likely have one since you RV CANNOT be towed without the emergency brakes released. I'd suggest you contact the mfg or the appropriate owners forum asking where the 'tap' is to energize the brakes for towing. You will not move 10' if your emergency brakes are engaged.

Good luck.

Here's another FYI, this one regarding being towed. We went through that exercise after blowing a turbo one day. Our coach is equipped with couplers front and rear as well, but do you think the tow truck driver used either? Nope. He crawled under the front end, removed the drain from one of the air tanks, and installed his fitting there! Point being, don't worry about being towed....
