Loosing leveling air.

After 10 years of flawless air bag leveling on my 05 Beaver Patriot Thunder I have started loosing air on my curb rear air bags. The leak is very slow and takes overnight to go all the way down. After hours of tracing lines, squirting several bottles of soapy water on air lines and connections, I found several small leaks, which when repaired, had no impact on the air bag going down. I finally found a leak through one of the air dump valves. The air seems to be coming out of the bottom of the valve itself. My questions are; could this be my problem or is a small amount of air leaking from the dump valve normal. Where in the system are the dump valves located?

We had a similar issue with our 05 patriot thunder, leaking at the valve is not normal. Chances are you'll need to replace the valve, that's what we did. So far so good!

If you are LOSING air it may mean that an air fitting is LOOSE.
