Alan1, what do those numbers mean or equate to? Front = 9.25 and Rear = 10.5 I have been always wondering what the ride height is supposed to be because I have air levelers also and the ride height never seems to be the same when I am ready to break camp.

I have a 2009 Beaver Contessa and have a related question to the ride height issue. My coach when parked in my drive way leans a bit to the driver's side. I realize my drive way slopes slightly that direction but with the air system aired up and the slides in and in travel mode shouldn't the inside of the coach be level?

Hope I'm posting this correctly.

Thanks

Dr, you can get the procedure by doing a search on ( Ride Height for a 97 Dynasty ) it was posted on 5-29-09
Your coach should come to level travel height when you turn the key on and the air level off or the key on and release the emer brake if your air level sys is HWH, what coach ?

Ride Height

Dr4Film--Ride Height for a 2002 Dynasty is 9.5 inches for the front and 11 for the rear. I assume you do not have a tag. If a tag both are 9 inches. The procedure is outlined in the search topic above.

For those of you wanting to chec your ride height, you make make yourself a simple tool that will let you check your height whenever necessary in just seconds.

Get some heavy, but bendable rod about 1/8" thick. Bend it like a banana so that the distance between the two ends is your ride height. Make one for the front and the rear. Whenever you need to check the height, just reach in with the rod and see if it's accurate.

Thank you all for the information on ride height for my 02 Windsor, the actual values and for Diplomat Don for a great suggestion on checking the ride height.

I will review the thread regarding Ride Height Adjustment for 97 Dynasty for instructions on the procedure or if I find it too difficult to handle, I'll have to get someone else to do it for me.

Thank again.
