Air Leaks

On our way South last November we stopped at a truck shop to get the loose AquaHot exhaust secured better. The technician said he heard an air leak but, of course, they did not have parts and would have had to research what parts to order. It was safe to drive so we went on but kept it in mind that it was something to fix.

At our winter spot in Hilton Head, the local RV people are knowledgeable about Monaco's. They did some tests and found leaks. They ordered solenoids and air valves required but don't have a pit so they couldn't replace the parts but we'd have them when we found a shop with a pit.

We went to a Truck/coach shop in North Carolina. They had the coach there for 2 days but - long story short - it ended up they couldn't do anything. It seemed like they didn't know much about leaks or that kind of leak. Our Hilton Head technician talked to them on the phone and sent them something but they said they'd have to keep the coach for weeks to figure it out. (They did not charge us anything.)

Does anyone have any advice or experience to help with this situation. The coach does air up to drive and there are no warning lights during the drive. We live in Western New Jersey. I remember someone telling me about a repair place in Amish country Pennsylvania but forget the name. Anyone know of that place? Something "Brothers," I think.

Thanks for any help and advice.

Good morning Artdeco; As all of us with older coaches the air leaks from the system are always going to be there. Some small and some that need attention, but usually can be fixed. For us who do our own work it is a bottle filled with soapy water and away we go under the coach and spray everything down looking for those bubbles! Sometimes it fittings or a solenoid or pressure protection valve that needs to be replaced. In my opinion, the big one, is if the coach air bags are leaking air. If your coach has the air leveling system the O rings on the solenoids start leak air and need to be replaced and those O rings are available.

Since your are on the east coast, hopefully someone in your area has a shop that knows what they are doing with an RV. To me these places are getting harder and harder to find, but they still exist. Hope you get some answers here to fix the problem. Have a great week!
