Air leveling on 2006 Navigator not holding level. Any suggestions?

The auto air leveling system works on our Holiday a Rambler Navigator DP initially on arrival.

And The system automatically rechecks the leveling after 30 minutes as it should and adjusts if need be. But after a day or two, we've noticed that the right side will start to sag a bit. Anyone else with a HR or Monico experience this?? Can I simply turn the engine back on and hit the auto level again to bring the coach back to level without putting the slides back in? Thanks in advance. This is a new issue for us.

Not familiar with the specifics of your Navigator leveling system. But on ours, I have no problem resetting and starting the leveling process all over. It will just fine tune the level as needed.

We usually turnoff the automatic check of level, as the electric compressor kicking on to tune the level, spooks are dog. So pretty normal for us while in a location over a few weeks time, to manually turn on the leveling system to have it do the tuning for us periodically, then turning the auto-check of level off again.

Believe your coach was during the Monaco days, so you might also check with the Monaco owners forum, to see if Monaco had something unique that makes this not a good idea(?).

And, next time you're in for service, you might have that corner looked over for problems. Slow air leak? Leveling lever out of sync? Airbag problem? Etc.

Best of luck to you,
Smitty

Mine's hydraulic, but when that happened, the foot was full of oil. The plunger shaft seal leaked when the coach was at an extreme angle, otherwise, if not too much angle, the seal was fine.
Seems like air cylinders might do the same thing, just no puddle to point to the problem.

I see no reason why you couldn't start it build air and re-level without retracting the slides as long as you weren't moving the coach. You must have acquired a slow leak on that side whether in an air valve connection or the actual airbags themselves. You will want to get that checked out before it becomes a major instead of a minor leak.

.

It appears it is very slow. We will be back home on the 19th and I will get it in and have it checked. When it is not in use I just dump the air and let it sit on the bumpers.

Thanks for your input. Love this coach but due to the fact it had four owners before us, we are working through one issue after another.
