Could you tell me the proper proceedure to bleed the water out of the air tanks? It seems my pressure while idling takes forever to build. Once running, tanks fill in no time, but just start up after sitting for two weeks, to get air lights to go off and relase brake, it seems like it takes half an hour to fill the tanks at 780RPM. My first move is to check for water.

There should be drain pitcocks on each tank's bottom side. I would also check for a air filter drier system and have it serviced. Once you have started the engine and it has warmed up a little you can increase the RPM's to 1k to help in the time needed to fully build up the air pressure.
