air bag question

When I dropped my coach in storage I dumped the air. I picked it up on the way home from work to do some maintenence this weekend. I pulled out of the place and started driving down the road and imeadiatley knew something was wrong. The ride was bouncing me like I was on a pogo stick. I dont think my air bags filled up. is there a button or something I need to reset or push?

The bags inflate automatically, could be your dump valve is stuck open. Give Freightliner a call, possibly they can diagnose it over the phone, they are pretty good

My 39K most often airs up the suspension after air pressure gets up to 125 pounds or so on the dash gauges but I sometimes have to push the jacks store button after the engine is running or restart the engine to get them to fill up.

If I deflated my air bags I have to push the store jack button to inflate them. I have bounced through the camp grounds.

Another question is should I store the coach with the bags inflated or empty? Sorry Im a newbie but learning.

One way or another, you WILL be storing it with the bags empty. Most coaches won't stay inflated for a long period time.

I occasionally have to cycle the jack switch in order for the bags to inflate.

I guess that the system sometimes gets confused, but then I'm in no position to point fingers.

My 39K self dumps in about three days or so. At Camp Freightliner Mike Cody said there is a rubber pad inside the air bags that prevent airbag damage when stored without air. You might want to consider one of those sessions - lots of good information passed out but some will apply to your RV.
