Did you take the bag of the coach the number should be on the top as well embossed in the rubber near the Firestone name.

Goodyear made the original bags for JetAir.

Than most of the AirLift auxiliary bags you see for sale.

Jetair will sell direct and may surprise you with exact fit kits for a reasonable price. They will also have the expertise provide the info required to recalibrate the system to automatically level the coach.

No. I didn't buy the bag. It was in a basement compartment when I picked up the motorhome. The owner blew a bag and purchased 2 new ones. His bag blew from rubbing on the suspension. The rubber bushings in the rear control bars were worn causing miss-alignment of the rear suspension.

If it's any help JetAir's number for the bag is 50752.

I haven't taken it off. I was going to have a mechanic replace them. I talked with the mechanic yesterday and he said the number was probably on the top. He has a small shop and I didn't want to have my motorhome blocking his bays for a long time while bags got ordered, so I have been trying to do some "leg work" for him.
I thought it would be easy to find the Firestone number

That does help; Jet Co quoted me 50752 for $243.18/ea, they didn't say what the part number was for. In any case that is better than the dealer.

{Edit} I just got off the phone with Jet Co: the Chevy number is 50752 & the Ford number is 60752. In both cases they are $243.18/ea.
When they come in I will note the Firestone number.

I got the air bags from Jet Co today, the Firestone part number on them is: W01-517-9259

Now if you cross referrence that with the Firestone manual, page 9, at:
http://vicbushfield.com/pdf/RV%20Mas...g%202009_E.pdf
You get a Firestone number of: W01-358-9259

I am betting there is a typo in the left column and the W01-517-9260 was changed to W01-358-9260, which is the Chevy air bag.
The only difference is .1 of a pound (why?).

Which the first google search turned up for $176/ea
These went from $364/ea (dealer) to $243/ea (JetCo) to $176/ea (Firestone dealer).

I hope someone learns from my experience.

hshiner - you owe me at least a six pack for this.

It's James, thank you.

Oops, I think there is a typo in the "right" column, not the "left" as I stated (2nd entry page 9 of the pdf).

I don't get to New York but, maybe I will some day. If you ever get West of the Mississippi let me know.

Good luck

I have called the dealer and they want $364/ea for the JET Co air bag replacements (50774).
I called Air Lift Co and they want $151/ea for the replacements (50201).

My questions are; has anyone replaced the JET Co with the Air Lift? Are they a direct replacement (no modifications needed)? Is the pressure through the regulator valves going to be okay?

I want to replace both of the air bags at the same time and $364/ea is too much to spend.

TIA
Hello JamesT, can you provide me with what kind of chassis you have, the chassis year, and the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)? Once I have this, I can reconfirm with my customer service manager that the 50201 bags are indeed a direct replacement with no modifications. Thanks!

A bit late to the party, I already have the air bags in hand from JetCo and have the replacement numbers for Firestone in the future. Thanks,

Randy, you might want to look up the specs on the Firestone I posted above and give other members a direct replacement quote.
