Valid Air Leveling fuse locations for 2008 Beaver Contessa

I had an issue where I needed to pull the Valid Air Leveling system fuses but couldnít find them. Even the Valid tech didnít know where they were because the placement was a Monaco decision. Does anyone know where the 3 fuse locations are in the front electrical bay?

Well, you’re in luck as my 08 Navigator is only 25’ away but it’s not any of the 3 different fuses labeled air level but it is this separate Inteltec board mounted on the upper right side of my front run box. Easier to just undo the plug than the 2 fuses.

Thanks, but I donít have that and there are no fuse locations labeled ďair levelingĒ either.

Mine doesn't either, and like yourself, I've never found any fuse labeled air leveling compressor.
If I need to shut down the aux compressor, I crawl under there and disconnect the compressor power.

Iíve located the compressor fuse in the past when I had a runaway compressor. The (3) fuses Iím looking for are the ones for the control panel and the sensors.

Mine are outside, under driver. Fuses #30 and 31 (ignition key energizes a relay) and 68 which is hot all the time.

is the 20 amp fuse labeled compressor just above the F17 labe in your picture..Is that to disable the small aux compressor for the leveling system? Mine must have a leak and kept turning on in the middle of the night and I would have loved to disable it during the night.I thought it might be the main engine compressor and didnt want to fool with that.

I have some kind of leak but my 07 Dynasty styes level. However the small aux compressor turns on every 45 minutes during the night (I guess when the tires are cooler and requires leveling) Only sometimes the hissing sound comes when it is leveling but we couldnt sleep cause that compressor kept turing on. I crawled under and fealt what I tought was a plug for the two wires going into the compressor but wasnt sure if it was a hardwire connection or an actual plug? Do you know if I can just reach up and unplug it?

There are 2 spade connectors on the compressor, if you want to disable it.

If it comes on every 45 minutes, you have a leak (s) that you can probably hear and trace.

Your engine air compressor doesn't need any electrical power.

Another way of stopping your aux pump from starting, is keeping your main air tanks filled. There's a feed line that comes off the secondary tank, going to the small leveling tank. It has a 65psi pressure protection valve, so when your main tank pressure drops below that, the small aux tank is on it's own.

On our Dynasty the fuse for the compressor is in the front run bay. It is a resetable fuse.

When you say spade connector, is it black with the red and black wires coming out of it up towards the top of the compressor? I couldn’t see it so I took a picture of it. It looks like a plug with a small tab to push or pull inwards to free the plug. But as I couldn’t see it, I was afraid it was hard wired into the compressor.

Is it A bit larger and metallic in color? Than a typical fuse. And what do you mean resettable? I could see a reset button on mine???
