We have a K2 05 Newmar. Have the same problem. Last September Spartan changed the air bags for us and we thought that solved the problem. Wrong. We are going back in April to have them check valving. Great people to deal with.

Your air leak could be anywhere in the air system. The front of the RV will go down first with the lose of air in the system.
I would recommend airing the system; put some jacks under the RV (so it can't accidentally set down on you). Crawl under it with a spay bottle of soap and water and spray down the entire system. 30 hours isn't that bad for lose of air. Good luck with it.

Just found this thread, what is the average time length that some of the chassie mauf. alow for all of the air to leak out of the system? We have just purchesed one with air ride. Would you need to put down the jacks to keep the suspension from bottomed out? It takes about 7 days for all air to leak out.
Thanks Jim

it does not hurt anything for the air bags to deflate. rubber bumpers are inside the airbags for just that situation.
