Front axle air pressure shows high and low pressure alarm sounds

Dutch Star 2000 Shows high pressure on front axle. Air bags fill and ride height is normal but low pressure alarm stays on and does so early in the day of driving. Alarm goes off while driving and usually stays off entire day. Does anyone have a suggestion? I know if I take it in for service the mechanic will not be able to find the problem. Where would the sensor for this air be located? I think maybe the cooler temps may be affecting the operation of this sensor.

Many of the Freightliner chassis have had this problem and my brother-in-law was one of them. Freightliner has a sending module in the engine compartmant and the air pressure tanks have hoses that go to the module, then that module sends signals to the dash gauges and alarm. Due to vibration the solder joints break and cause the problem you are having.

My brother-in-law called Freightliner and I think that wanted $600 for a new module. We removed his and disassembled it and I resoldered the connections and that fixed his problems.

There are lots of reports of the problem on the Winnebago owners group. Do a search under Winnebago and you will get lots of information. The problem is not limited to Winnebago, it is a Freightliner problem.
