Does altitude affect air leveling system

I am at 6500ft this weekend and I notice that the compressor for my leveling system comes on quite often. I am parked on a level concrete pad. In the three years I have owned this coach I can't think of anytime I have heard it kick in but here it runs a number of times each day. I haven't looked underneath for any leaks but I don't hear any. Does anyone know if the altitude could be causing this?

It's not altitude. Frequent compressor cycling means there is an air leak somewhere.
