F53 Rear air bag leak- replacement

I have a leak from my passanger side rear air bag. It is damaged and needs to be replaced. Driver side is fine. Do I have to replace both at once to keep things even? If not, is there an easy way to determine what kind/model/brand of airbag I have so I buy the proper replacement for the damaged one?
It is a 1998 Georgie boy cruise master ford f53 chassis 35 footer. Not sure if these were factory installed? I bought this rv used recently.

Thanks!

I don't know about back in '98, but the post Y2K F53s do not have air bags. I'm thinking you may have after market additions. As always, I reserve the right to be wrong.

Thanks for the reply,
Thinking I will jack it up and pull the bad one out and bring it to the local rv place to see if they can identify it and order me a replacement if their price is reasonable. Anything difficult about this job or is it pretty straight forward? Hoping to save a few bucks by doing it myself.

It's not difficult to remove. Once you get it out you should see a label with the manufacturers name, Air Lift or Firestone, and P/N. Most of the time you'll get a better price searching the internet then at an RV store, look for free shipping.

I recently replaced my air bags. On the bag itself, you should be able to read the brand name and model #. Definitely check for online pricing as RV shops will be much more expensive. Replacement was easy enough when using a creeper and have long enough arms.

Thanks for the tips. I pulled the bag off tonight and the number on it is "a01 760 0335" firestone ride rite. I am having a tough time finding the exact replacement with that code online. Any idea if it is the same as "w21 760 0335" as I have found that one on eBay for a good price and I think it looks the same.
Any specific company people have had good luck with that maybe I can contact to clarify I am getting the right part before I purchase?

Thanks in advance!

Looks like this is the manual for your system. The bag part number is 335 so I suspect you're on the right track. You can call Ride-Rite to make sure.

I used Summit Racing for my Ride-Rite stuff, you'll probably have to call them as a quick search did not turn up the 335 bag. I do know they match other internet prices if they do have it.
