1996 Holiday Rambler Air brake problem, won't build up pressure

I need help figuring my brake system on my Endeavor LE. When I bought my RV, if it was cold, I would have to rev the engine several times to get the pressure to start. Now I can't get any pressure at all. I took the coalescing filter out it looks dirty, but I don't think this is my problem, I thinks it the governor on the pump, but I can't seem to find the governor. I would like to find a manual for my 1996 Holiday Rambler Endeavor LE. Least for the chassis any way. Thanks

A call to the Freightliner ( Free ) help line could get you the info you need, have your serial number handy. Inquire about joining " Access Freightliner " for online access to info for your coach.
1-800-FLT-HELP.

I'll post a few of the items I have but they are for an newer Cat powered Freightliner Chassis so they may not be any real help.

Here is a basic air brake handbook , gives info on compressors.

Looks like the down load didn't got through , may be too large.
I downloaded it from the Bendix web site. I will try again.

Don't know how much help I am , when I give you the wrong number.

Should be FTL not FLT , I'm old and suffer from a case of CRS ( can't remember ....)
Correct number for help line.

Hi Skip426
I want to thank you for all your help. I got my problems figured out yesterday. The governor for my unit was right behind a metal line which the metal line was hiding the governor, why they cramp everything they can in a small confinement. But my brakes work, and I'm back in business. So thanks again and have a great summer, the suspension specialists will help me in the future.
