Roadmaster even brake

I bought a used Roadmaster even brake and I think it might have a problem. I have set everthing up and it works right but I think it has an air leak. With it plugged into the power outlet and not doing moving, it will pump air for 10 seconds every 5 minutes. Is this normal for a even brake?

Mine does that too. I think that happens as they age. Mine is 5 years old. I don't think it is a major issue but it will run your car battery down if you don't have it charged from the coach.

I've had two do it

Two air leaks on two different 9700"s in 3 years. Quality control issue at the factory????? Are you saying that if I get power from the MH my dead batteries situation will cease??

Any time there is any system in the toad, drawing power, then a charge line from the MH, is a great idea.
