Air Bags

After some thought and inspecting the airbags on my 2000 Intrigue, I decided to replace all of them.
Of course they were original equipment and looked very good from the outside, once I inspected the old ones, I think I made a good decision.
You couldn't see these weather cracks from the outside.
Anyway, just food of thought if your airbags are original.

Yup, mine looked the same way. Looked fine from the outside but once off I could see that they were in need of replacing. Glad I did it.

I also have a 2000 Intregue. I am planning to replace mine as well. Can you help me with the model # and where you chose to purchase yours?

I'll get the invoice from the coach and the part #s.
They had to modify the stems on the front (I believe)
I know I fella that owns a diesel truck shop and they replaced them.
I purchased them from their shop and I'm sure they came from Freightliner Austin.

On both my front bags I had to take the new and old bag to NAPA to do a mix and match inlet modification. The new ones had a different inlet diameter. While at it I changed from the quick connect push on air line to a compression fitting.

How hard is it to change these yourself? What tools are needed? 2002 Allure 36 footer.

Yep, ours are just starting to show weather checking/small cracks like yours. On this years "to do list". :(

Thought it best to not be on the road somewhere and have an airbag issue.
Of course I purchased the bags thru the repair shop and they made $ on them but they only charged me 3 1/2 labor so I didn't think the total cost was bad.
Beats setting somewhere I didn't want to be for a couple of days while waiting on replacements.
