Newmar Air Bag Suspension

We have a question about the Air Bag Suspension. The unit is currently being stored. It appears that the air bag have bled off and the coach is sittling very low. Is this normal after an extended amount of time in one spot. Motor has not been started for awhile.

Both of the coaches we've owned have done it. Now I just dump the air when parking.

Few air suspension systems are totally leak-free and will bleed the pressure off over time. Currently mine only takes about 36 hours. I can get the air system tuned up and find/fix theleak(s) but chances are it will leak somewhere else before too long, so I don't worry about it until it gets worse.

Mine dumps the air when leveling anyway.

Yep, mine has been going down for years. Sometimes in 8 hrs, sometimes in 3 days. I just start up and air up and go on even after sitting for 2 months.
