Air system question

How long should my tanks retain air above 60 psi when I shut the coach down for a couple days up to a week? Is it normal after a couple days when I start it up the system has to rebuild air pressure back up. If itís normal, where does the air go? Does it just bleed out through the brakes?

It is normal for the air system to leak down when parked for a few days, If all the air hoses, air valves, relays, and everything in the air system were perfect it would not leak but that just doesn't happen to often, usually the air will leak from a relay or valve that has a little gum or dirt in it causing the seals to leak. next time you park it will be a different valve or something. The allowable leakdown rate according to the DOT is 4 psi in the front and 4 psi in the rear in two minutes which figures out to complete leakage down to zero in one hour, check this web page for a better explanation, D.O.T. Standard Allowable Leakdown

Mine will settle down in the rear in just a few days. The front seems to stay up indefinitely. I've taken to dumping the air when I park it so it won't tweak the frame.
