Today, I finally got around to draining the air tanks by pulling the three lanyards. Two drained some air and the third one did nothing. Should I have heard air emitting from all three? My coach was parked and on the jacks at the time.

We have an '04 Journey. My HWH control has three buttons [Level] [Store] [ON/Off].

When I deploy my jacks I press the [Level] button ... that dumps the air from the air bags (and as I understand it) as well as from the tank that inflates the air bags.

If you pull the lanyards after your jacks are stored and the air pressure has built back up you will hear something when you pull each lanyard

I have a 2004 Horizon 40AD and have found that the cable routing thru the frame leaves something to be desired. Pulling the lanyard (cable) does not always pull the valve properly due to how it is routed thru the frame and thus does not drain the tank. If you can, crawl under and have a look of yourself. It is pretty easy to see if that is the problem.

Do you have to pull down or to the side on the lanyard? I pulled down and got nothing.

Mine are all in the right front wheel well and they pull to the side with the awning rod.

Mine are also in the right front wheel well. Two cables come through the frame at a hole slightly to the rear of the tire, and one through a hole slightly forward of the tire, I just pull them straight out, away from the frame with the awning rod. Just a little pull and you can hear the air hiss. But, I always do it when the coach is "aired up", partly so that I can see the cable loops. It does make sense that if you have aired down, there won't be any air in the tank to come out.

I have to pull from the side to release the air. You may be able to re-route the cable to work as I did. Just remove the cotter pin at the valve end and string the cable so that it will pull in the right direction and then reinstall a new pin. Pretty easy to do.

After reviewing the posts, I tried again and pulled the lanyard sideways, still no air from the tank nearest the driver's side front wheel. I am on the jacks and don't know if that is the reason.
