Suspension Air Lower-Auto

Still trying to sort some things out that don't seem to be covered in the owners manual. Near the bottom of my steering column is a switch labeled "Suspension Air" with an option to the left of lower and to the right as auto. Not sure what this is for. Someone recently told me that I need to lower the suspension air before I use the auto leveling feature. Any insight appreciated.

Yes, it is used to deplete the air in the air bags, which lowers the coach. Iíll use this feature when setting up for camp or storing coach.
A couple benefits are lowering the entry steps and reducing the extended length of the leveling jacks, which increases stability.

A note when placing to auto; let the system air pressure build to the first purge(max pressure) then throw the switch to auto to restore to ride height. You can set idle speed faster to build pressure quicker.

Make sure to wait until coach is back to ride height before starting your travels.

Iím sure there will be some other tips coming your way but this is a start.
