Air ride leaks

Was thinking of putting a little fix a flat juice in my air ride lines. Try to hold the air in a little longer. Thought I would check with the mh gurusfirst

Absolutely, get under it and find the worse ones and fix them one by one

Not safe at all as you might loose air and get shut down at a very in-opportune time

i am sure I do have to say it but I will. Be sure it is blocked properly before getting under.
But, you will probably be surprised what you can find with a spray bottle of bubble check. Leveling valves are a good place to start, the bags too.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I would NOT put that stuff in the air lines! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Might be the safest, but not the best, if you do not want to learn how the air systems work. Likely shortly after you put it in the brakes would not release locking the coach down. A much better plan would be study a little bit so you know how the systems work. With that knowledge prop it up, chock the wheels, build air pressure, find and fix leaks...

Beside the dangers of plugging up components by adding fix a flat to the air system, if you ever aired down a tire with it in it, you will find that it only works once.

Every component in an air system, unlike a sealed tire, is an open system and discharges its air out to the atmosphere.

Even the air suspension maintains ride height by adding newly compressed air and discharging old air. Evey time it discharges, out goes some of the fix a flat.

Forget that idea.
