Suspension air bags

My brother is looking at a 2007 Newmar AllStar model 4253 cycle hauler. The suspension airbags are REYCO 240AR. The owner said that the only thing that doesn’t work in the unit is the bags would hold air but won’t release air. How do these work? Are they remote control? Is there a button on the dash? What mechanism fills and releases the air? Also, this model has a mid engine Diesel engine. The engine is situated in the middle if the coach. Does anyone have experience with these?
Thanks in advance

With the age of the coach and if the air bags haven't replaced it would be time to replace the air bags. There is a valve that dumps the air which would be control with the leveling control. You have a Spartan chassis on your Newmar and a call to Spartan with the last 6 numbers from your Vin would be your first place to get a more detailed information like air dump valve location and the part. Should have HWH leveling system which could also be of assistance. Doesn't sound like a big issue and shouldn't be a major issue on the purchase.

...sounds like a very uniquely designed rig, perhaps too unique....one of a kind rigs don't have a large following of experienced owners to help new owners learn the ropes?????...being 13 years old doesn't help either as in most cases, the manufacturers have "moved on"....
