Air Dryer Re-Location
I have a project that I have been considering since shortly after my 2017 purchase of a 2007 Allure, specifically, right after I changed fluids & filters. I was very surprised to find that when I set out to replace the cartridge on the air dryer, it is mounted directly in front of the differential.
My previous RV, a 1997 Monaco Windsor, had the air dryer mounted on the inside of the right-hand-side frame rail, to the right side of the Allison, just rearward of the rear wheel well. It was easy to get at & service, so what was CC thinking? On my Allure, I just pulled the entire assembly out & replaced the complete air dryer unit. Oh boy, I could hardly wait for the next desiccant cartridge replacement!
Anyway, I am planning to relocate the entire air dryer assembly to the left of the 2 fuel filters that are mounted on the steel cross member just inside of the rear fiberglass cap & just below the engine access door opening. Moving both fuel filters/water separator slightly to the right will give me plenty of room & make future replacement of the cartridge much, much, much easier.
Has anyone else moved their air dryer? Any suggestions or concerns I should be aware of?
