Based on that decal - here's a link to the manual https://fariabeede.com/site_manuals/...us_vehicle.pdf

Are you sure the Aladdin system is somehow interfaced with this? I know the Aladdin interfaces with the engine and transmission data cable - but I have never seen anything in the literature regarding the Aladdin interfacing with the dash gauge cluster.

I think the two systems (dash gauges and Aladdin display) are separate things.

No I am not sure! I do know that the two systems (dash gauges and Aladdin screen) share the same information from somewhere. Both display RPM, MPH, Oil Pressure, Temperature, trans temp and so on.

I did assume it was part of the Aladdin system, if it is not, it was certainly not meant to misdirect anyone...

air gauge

I do not think there is an easy fix for your air gauges. I believe we have the same system. (05 Signature, Detroit 60 ) I put in regular air gauges.(Viair 2" air gauge PN 90087 two for $29 on Ebay ) You can tie in by your front air drain for the front tank. For the rear tank look in your second bay in the ceiling. Look for the Faria module. There are air lines going to the module. One of them is for the rear tank. Use a pointed dowel rod to make holes through foam to run the air lines. Good luck.

Yes this seems to be the best idea. Leave everything hooked up JUST encase it comes back to life and then install the aux. gauge and run lines and go on down the road knowing for sure what is aired up. Thanks to all. Roger

I would use the same size lines as going to the control module now. It is most likely 1/4".

Just use a "tee" fitting there and run same size lines over to new gauge(s). I'd even buy the same color hoses (red and green) to make identification easier.

Warning - below is just rambling:
I've never seen smaller (than 1/4" nylon) air line used anywhere on a truck (expect to the transmission range shifter on the old Eaton-Fuller 15 spd trans). I'm not even sure that 1/8 or 3/16 nylon hose is DOT approved for air brake system.

Man today was eventful! Air the coach up completely blocking frame and turning wheels first one way then the other to work my body under front in front of the wheel then turn the wheel the other direction so I can get the tubing up where it needs to be behind the wheel and still havnt got past the foam to get over the propane tank and fuel tank. Thats the worlds toughest foam and it must have cost .01 cents per 5 gallons as they used a ton of it. Its rough having a full size body on a short person trying to look through bifocals. But hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. 2 hours down and probably another 2 to go.

I have used a metal wire fish tape to poke through the foam. A straightened coat hanger would work too.

Well gave up on getting a rod through all the foam and found an ideal location to hole saw a 1 3/16 hole above the propane tank and outside the frame put in a grommet and proceeded over the propane and the fuel tank to the next comparment and put another hole through the wall that was wood and followed wiring to next compartment where all the alladin and airline boxes are at. Made the connections at both ends and everything works. Only need to wire the light in the gauge and put the ceilings back up in two bays and I will be done. Tired of climbing under the coach and into the bays but it only took 4 hours some youngen could have done it in 2 probably. Thanks to everyone for all the help. Roger

Good work!
If you are anything like myself, from now on, EVERY time you fire up and drive you will get a little satisfaction that your air tank gauge works!
The effort part will fade over time but the working gauge will always be there with you
