So has anyone installed the coach side themselves? Can it be done without having access to a “pit” or jacking the coach? Weather is bad here in South GA for next few days so I can’t try to under the coach to assess the room. Trying to NOT spend the $1200 to install both Coach and Toad side or $750 for the Coach for installation.

Thank you in advance!

I installed mine years ago on the tag axle as there was not enough clearance on the drive axle with suspension vertical movement. As I remember the rear had to be jacked up with the coach jacks to have enough room to squeeze in but no wheels off the ground. Once in there and sort of sitting up behind the tag axle the mounting of the valves was relatively easy. I ran the air lines from there to the engine bay access along the DS frame rail and mounted the air tank on a cross frame piece below the air filter.

Thanks for the help. That’s what I was hoping to hear. As soon as this rain stops for a day or 2 I’ll be trying it out.

I installed mine two years ago. I had to make an L bracket to attach tank to frame as shown in picture. Safest way to work under coach without having a pit is to put rear wheels on ramps. Don’t rely on air suspension or jacks. Click image for larger version

I installed my system on the coach and Jeep Wrangler. Type "air force one" in the search engine and you'll come up with mine and other posts regarding doing your own install. Let me know if I can be of further help.
