Manual Air Bag Dump

I have a 2013 Jayco Seneca on the Freightliner business class chassis. I am wondering if there is a way to manually dump the rear air ride suspension air bags. I don't have a switch on the dash but I do have the air valve for the Parking brake. Any ideas?

Never had a rig with air suspension that didn't have an air dump on the panel. But, we've never had anything but HWH systems in a Type A MH either. Even the 2000 Dutch Star on FL chassis had the air dump pushbutton on the control panel.

Just wondering,
Why would you want to dump the rears only? Most air suspension systems are coordinated with the hydraulic leveling systems and work together so that either one, or the other is being used, but not both. At least that's the way I understand it to be.

I only have rear airbags and they are not part of the leveling system. The idea with lowering the rear is if I pull into a sloped site with the rear high I could drop it so the front doesn't have to go as high to reach level.

Right now when I level at a site like that the jacks go down and hold at the height where the rear is right after parking.

Yes, there is a way to put a dump valve in. I had one put in so I can get the MH in my building. I had my local truck mechanic put it in, it is an air toggle switch. Not sure exactly how he did it, but it is possible. I also use it when I level the coach, helps keep the entry step closer to the ground. Drops the rear 6 to 7 inches.
