Manual airbag dump

I have a 2013 Winnebago Journey 34b MH. Would like to get my coach leveled at the lowest possible height when coming to a campsite. Is there a (simple) way to deflate the airbags?

On my coach, there is a switch I use to dump the air. Doesn't your coach have a one?

Could you add your coach's leveling system brand to your post .

On my Freightliner with HWH levelers ( 310 system ) the button for dumping the air suspension is right on the leveler control pad. On newer automatic leveling systems the dump function is controlled by the leveling system computer.

My coach has a Power Gear system and when I press the manual button on the leveler panel, my air bags dump. If I press "auto level, they dump and then the coach levels automatically. All air dumping is through the Power Gear panel.

I have the Lippert leveling system (unfortunately), and Iím looking at available info on line, I assume there should be an automatic dump function, but I may have a problem in my system. Went to the Freightliner class in Gaffney a couple of years back, and I will look at my notes to find the dump.valve and start tracing from there.

Lippert (Power Gear) has a good web site filled with owners and service manuals for all of their systems.
