Air bag suspention (Front) 94 Winnebago

Hello,
I am a new rv owner. I have a 94 Winnebago 34'. One of the front driver side air bags will not hold air. Any suggestions on replacing the air bag and finding a supplier for this part.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Changing them is sometimes tough task,I used a mightyvac and took all the air out twisted the bags and shoved them in.I wasn't worried about the old bags so I just cut them out.

Some thought to chew on:

1) Odds are that a 94 anything will have other issues going on that need attention as well. Very likely one of them will require removing other front end parts as part of the process and will make the whole job easier to deal with.

2) A well regarded RV suspension and steering expert suggests removing front air bags entirely and substituting stronger springs based on actual weight load.

Thank you for your advise. You are probably correct on having other issues on the front end parts. It has 59,000 miles. It appears to be very well maintained for a 94 model. All of the grease fittings areas seem to have been utilized over the years. As I mentioned earlier, this is my 1st MH. Long story how I ended up with it..... I do not know what the future holds. I think I will try sucking a vacuum on the new air bag and working it thru the bottom.
Thanks,
James
