High air pressure indicator

Hello, being a newbie I hope I do this correctly. I have found a post here on irv2 dated 12/2010 that explains a fix for this issue. The post is straight forward by a J Walker and is clear, however I would like to know if anyone has the complete "DIY" document with the missing pictures. I have a 38' 2000 Newmar Dutch star that is having these exact problems and I am anxious to give it a try.

What chassis? Are the gauges showing pressures in excess of 125 psi?

It is a on a freightliner chassis. The gauge is erratic in operation. Across bumps or whenever for that matter it jumps around from 0 to 130 and usually comes to rest maxed out. The original post I spoke of covers the repairs to this effect. It seems freightliner is known for having loose terminals at the soldier joints of the VDU. I have the explanation of the repair just not the pictures that coincide with the repair.

I would bet it's a loose ground wire. See if you can wiggle the wires going to the gauge and cause the same problem.

I have tried that and no luck. I have even traced the wires extensively when it is having its spell as instructed and no luck. I have replaced the gauge at the dealers advice and no luck. I have cycled the air chambers numerous times as instructed and no fix either.

I have a different chassis and the air pressure sender is also different. The sender's/switches are on the foot treadle. Have looked them? Should gave two of them on it.
