Air dump control

I purchased a 2008 Damon Tuscany 4076 DP about 6 months ago. I can't find an air dump control on the dash. Looking through the different threads it sounds like I can dump air by pulling lanyards on the airbags but I would rather not go under the coach every time i want to manually dump air pressure. Any thoughts??? Thanks for your help.

Do you have automatic leveling? If so, when you activate auto level, it should dump the suspension before the jacks come down. I can dump mine with a switch, but they also dump with the auto level switch

Does your leveling jack touch panel look like one of these.
You will find the operating instructions here. , which includes the automatic and manual air spring dump procedures.

I should have added that I have LCI electronic leveling with both auto and manual functions. There is a manual dump button underneath which I don't want to use. I think the air dump should be automatic, but it doesn't seem to be functioning. The LCI documentation that I have doesn't mention auto or manual air dumping. Thanks for your help. I'll dig a little deeper into the internet.

In the set up for you auto level one of the if not the last thing you do before exiting set up mode is activate auto air dump. I over looked that and turned mine off until my dear wife corrected my mistake.

We own a 2008 Damon Astoria, basically a Tuscany on a lighter chassis. Ours does not automatically dump the air when auto leveling the coach. They are more than likely designed this way from the factory. I've just learned to use the manual dump switch located on the lower left side of the dash (on the kick panel) before we level. I also will dump the air to the bags anytime the coach will be sitting for any length of time.

The model number is vital too. Why don't you want to use the manual air dump feature? LCI put it there to use.
