Before I bought my unit with Valid, I asked about it. I love it.
This thread may help you.

We just had air leveling added to our Dutch Star. We had HWH's system, so now we have both air and hydraulic leveling. For us it will be long term/short term deal. Plus the ability to level in rest areas.

We did not opt for Active Air, that is a whole different beast. This system completely changes the way the coach handles and drives. Which double the installation cost and will take about a week to install.

We did live in our coach while they added air leveling.

Redbaron73 (on this board) added Active Air to his coach and has a blog page.

The new leveling panel. To auto level you just press which one you choose, twice.

We have HWH air leveling on our CC and love it. It's one of the things we want on our next coach, but Newmar and Entegra don't offer it any more..We could only find it offered on American Coach.
