Yes the coach can lower enough to trap you if were in the wrong area.

That sound more like the slide release for the gen set, than anything to do with the air tanks.
The lanyards on my tanks were coiled up near the tanks, there was enough length to route them so they would, not cut or abraid any hoses , to a place where I could pull on the lanyard with my awning rod.
You just need to be carefull with the lenght to make sure the end of the lanyard can't be snagged on the ground or by a tire.

Lol. Ya I crawled under last night and realized the latch was for the generator slide out. Thanks.

Got my VDC repaired last night. Very simple process thanks to the great instructions. I was having problems with the front air gauge and I found that all the solder joints on the front sensor were cracked thru. Hopefully that will be the end of the issues.

Well crud. Everything worked fine when I finished the other day and started the engine. Started it again tonite and let it run for 10 minutes and now the gauge is pegged on 130 and the buzzer stays on. :(. Do you think I ruined the pressure sender resoldering the connection, maybe it got too hot? Now what?

I'm having the exact same problem, I removed everything, did the resolder and hooked it back up. Unfortunately I still have the same intermittent issue. I'm thinking about just replacing the VDC but I'm concerned that it maybe an issue with the wiring I've been unable to find. I sure don't want to spend the $400+ and still have it not work.

Is it common for the resolder not to be effective?

In life, we can not control everything. Therefore, we should control what we can. Injury or death to another person because we took a shortcut is a terrible burden to bear.
