Air valve leak/discharge - normal?

After initial engine startup and building air pressure, this right front valve blows air after pressure has built. I can't tell for sure exactly where the air is coming from at the valve around the valve. Is this a normal pressure relief? After a while everything seems fine and I don't hear any air leaking, but I'm wondering if this is normal or an indication of a needed repair?

Thanks.

Spray a soap solution on it to find the leak. I don't believe you are hearing a normal condition from your description. When was the last time you had your air dryer serviced?

Check for leaks at the connections. This is not a particularly expensive valve. I don't believe there is any adjustment necessary in a straight replacement.
Be sure the coach is supported by something other than the air bag when you get under there.
