Yes,
My tank is in the front near the gen. The air compressor is installed in the front DS electrical compartment on my coach, but on my friends it is installed PS side of the generator. There is no standard installation.

I just got under my coach, I canít believe that those tiny little shocks are adequate for the 17k front axle no under it bounces to high havens, any way Mr. D this question is for you, from reading some of your previous posts I understand you have cats, how did you managed to have your Active air installed with your cats on board, I will be faced with the same issue, I have no place to keep her for a week.

Having spartan comp upgrade my OEM shocks made a BIG difference wrt bounce.

Can someone ballpark an installed price for HWH active air? Also installs are done where?

Your cats will be no issue. Most of the work is underneath the coach, but when they come in they will always close the door if they know you have cats. If your cats like to try to get out, then just put them in the back and close the bedroom door (you'll need to put pillows under the door) if you are going to be away from the coach.

Living in the coach up on the rails (6 feet up) is different, particularly at night when you are alone in the building.

Slides? Does active air keep the coach level when parked or does the coach still take on the grade it’s parked on ( before dumping and leveling)? Just wondering if there is an advantage for deploying the slides?

I had Active Air installed back in June 2018. Absolutely the best mod I have made (yes, the most expensive as well). I love to be able to really see that I'm at ride height, and believe it ... going around corners is much, much easier on the coach - stays level instead of leaning out. I rarely use my jacks now, the auto level is perfect and it stays there forever. Yes it is worth it.

Understand that the new Entegra Anthems and Cornerstones now have Valid Air ... which I understand is just as good as HWH Active Air - but I'm not in the market for a new coach.

Had the HWH active air installed on my 2014 MA not too long after delivery. From the start it did not function properly. After HWH tried numerous things for me to do to fix it, they had me return to Moscow at which time they discovered they had installed the wrong hardware in the rear( from an earlier version), all day to change out and remount correct hardware and reprogram. said everything was fine , drove back to NC and system still not functioning correctly. They tried me doing several fixes, non worked, said I would have to bring it back to Moscow. I said I had already done that with no results and they should send someone to me to fix it. Last I heard from them. I no longer own the coach. So for me it was not the wonderful driving experience that others have had, just sayng.
