Tag axle

I was reading thru some of the other threads and ran across "ABS light on Tag Axle". It was Monaco specific. They talked about the tag axle raising and lowering. I mentioned that I wasn't aware that the tag raisied and lowered and asked if it could be raised and lowered manually an if so where the switch was located. I have a 1988 Holiday Rambler 35 ft. with a tag axle and have not seen a switch for the tag. Does anyone know anything about it?

Some do, some don't.

My Spartan K3 won't actually raise the tag, but there is a switch to dump the air from the tag suspension which will unload the weight so the tag won't drag as much making sharp turns.

Other chassis will actually raise the tag off the ground, again for close quarters maneuvers.

Randy, is your MH a diesel pusher? I don't think gas powered MH have liftable tag axles.
