A question on the air leveling on our 09 Camelot.

Good day all
I have yet another question that I hope you fine folks here can help me with.
On our 09 Camelot it is air leveling only, I did read a thread about air leveling and that if you have a coach that is air leveling only that there is an onboard compressor that will kick in if the coach goes out of level and re-level it.
I have no idea if our coach is equipped with this option and if it is where would I look for the compressor?
I have noticed that over about a week or more the coach goes out of level and I've had to re-level it, but I did have the power off to the leveling system. I started the engine to do the re-leveling,
I would assume that one would need to leave the power to the leveling system on for this to work. I've never heard the sound of a compressor come on but we haven't been around the coach that much.

Thank you for all your help, you are wonderful folks with a great deal of knowledge.
(I'm going to know this coach inside and out by the time I'm done) lol

My compressor is midship, over the front axel. I've seen them under the right front bumper on a 2008 Camelot (tucked in between bumper and entrance steps)

I've seen them over the tag axel, but that was on a Signature, I believe.

If you slide your gen out and look down low on the pass side, you should see a small (maybe 1.5gal) air tank standing on end. It has a thumbscrew drain on the bottom of it. Open this drain, and you should hear the electric leveling compressor come on. It will be mounted directly behind this tank, and ahead of the entry stairs.

This might be a dumb question but is this compressor 12 volt or 120 volt??

The pump would be 12vdc.

Ditto on where Ben said it would be. It's located right where the right front tire would throw mud, snow, rain, etc on it. Same for most of the entry-step controller locations.

I've learned that a lot of them have the pressure switch & one-way valve plumbed on the wrong side of the line. You might want to peruse some of the threads on here that discuss the proper routing, and how to change it.

I read somewhere you're putting the coach to bed for a few months. But when you go back in the spring, you can test the pump for operation. There is no on/off switch so you can apply 12 volts directly to the pump to check.

The check Valve RustTools mentions seems to be a common problem. It will cause the pump to short cycle. It's not a difficult or expensive fix. I have pictures somewhere of the change over.

Always be careful when going under the chassis. Don't rely on the air suspension to hold the coach up when you're under it.
