Other RVers there and they have the same issue for years w/o any repairs.........so............I'll leave it go for now. Save $$$$$

On another note, my smart steering wheel is not centered (15 deg left of center). When I contacted Spartan the first thing they asked me was it a smart wheel. They told me this was also somewhat common to the 2007 Traditions and I probably did not need a front end alignment. Because my tires are new as of 08/17 I will just check them regularly with my tire depth gauge and watch for any abnormal wear patterns. Anyone else have a similar observation?

My steering wheel isn't exactly centered either and not about to go fooling with it.

My experience not be equally applicable due to make/model/year; but its normal for my coach to flash low air pressure alarms after being parked/docked overnight (or multiple days) on hyd. leveling jacks as the process dumps the air-bags when deploying them. Just takes a few minutes for the air system to charge back up once I start the coach and then the alarms clear as pressure rises above the low level alarm state.

Glad you got that handled, I'm late to the party but if your new to this coach and not familiar with air braking system I would suggest taking the coach to a heavy truck dealer, like Freightliner, Mack, International etc... and get a full FDOT inspection. Most dealers have a flat fee for it and you'll get a checklist showing brake condition, check for air leaks, chassis suspension wear etc.... points that a normal "oil change" at speedco or the like will not provide.
A very inexpensive piece of mind.
