1987 Beaver Marquis air system
I wonder if anyone here has the same motorhome and can provide some guidance.
This is a recent purchase and my first RV and it has an air leak. It actually cannot build up enough pressure to be drivable.
I suspect that the line from the compressor to the back is the culprit. I can hear a constant hiss from the engine compartment (bed raised) after shutting off the engine.This lasts about 30 to 60 seconds.
I check the fittings on the compressor with soapy water and they are fine.
Following the line going down (on the driver side), it goes to underneath the RV. When I grabbed it with my fingers and moved it and pulled and pushed a little on it, the sound of the hissing air changes.
I tried to track the line underneath but it is difficult to move under the RV and it was getting late so I decided to do some internet research. Nothing useful turned up.
Couple of questions.
I have previously look under the RV and cannot find the air dryer. Does it have one? (and I am too blind to see it).
Does the air hose go directly to the air tank in the back???
If I replace the hose, where do I buy one and what kind?
I know, it is a little long winded, but I hope I got enough info in there to describe the problem.
It also seems that my air pressure in the tanks is holding despite the leak in the hose. Check valve?
