air force 1 install

if you go to their web site the manufacturer indicates complete install directions and a cd are included with purchase and the install is relatively easy.
has anyone actually put one of these in themselves....and how was it?

I installed a system on a 2007 Newmar Essex spartan K2 chassis and a 2004 Chevy Avalanche. Took about 5 hours total time. My problem was supporting the motorhome so I could get underneath to install the ping tank and hoses. I created some 8 inch tall wood pads made out of 4x4 and 2x12 wood. I rasied the coach with my hadley air system and put the wood pads under the rear jacks and then let the air out of the coach. This gave me plenty of room to get under the coach. The instructions were a little hard to follow concerning the install of the metered line for the ping tank. After I got SMI on the phone and crawled underneath and saw were to tie in the line it became clearer.

I have AF1. I had it installed professionally and I watched as it was installed. I don't find myself that mechanically inclined to take on that job by myself. Even the professionals took about 3 hours, and some fabrication was needed.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
