Air release

I have a 1999 Tradewind with 44k miles. Some times when pulling a hill or taking off I can hear air releasing from what seems to be underneath the front of the coach. It does not do it all the time. I have watched the air gauges while it is happening, and have seen no bleed down on the gauges. I have looked underneath and cannot find a thing. Like I said it only happens while I am underway. It is not the PRV for it is located in the rear of the coach. Any insight into this will be greatly appreciated.

I assume it has air suspension, if so it is the automatic leveling system on the air bags working.

Yes it does have suspension. It just seems a little excessive for that to be the problem. When under power it seems to release very fast, then when you let off the throttle it slows down. Sometimes it does not do it at all, then other times it does. If it was the air ride I would think that it would be more so on curves not going down a flat straight road..
