firstname.lastname@example.org Posted September 3, 2022 Share Posted September 3, 2022 (edited) ISSUE RESOLVED. The 3/4 to 1/4 reducing bushing was leaking. Tightened and no more leak. 2004 Dynasty. Front left air bag blew due to rubbing on the shock. Fortunately it blew while leveling and not driving. New bag installed and has a leak around the 3/4 to 1/4 brass reducing bushing. The leak is bad enough to totally deflate the bag in under 10 minutes after auto leveling. (The main compressor keeps it inflated properly while driving.) While parked, the leak in this bag is also causing the other 3 front bags to totally deflate. While parked, so the bags are not resting in a deflated status, we are temporarily inserting 4x4 between the axel and the frame at each of the 4 bags. I suspected the HWH 6 pack was the cause of all 4 bags deflating, so we spent yesterday at HWH in Moscow IA. They inspected and told me that the 6 pack was not the cause of the other 3 bags deflating. The also confirmed that the brass reducing bushing was causing the leak in the bag that was replaced. When I asked them to explain why 1 bag leaking would causing the other 3 to deflate, the answer was "depends on how it was plumbed". I am pretty sure when other bags were replaced due to age, their replacement did not cause other bags to lose their air. While I will fix the leak either by tighten or replacing the bushing, I don't understand why the other 3 bags are losing all their air. The auxillary compressor does not keep up with the leak when it is in sleep (automatic) mode. Even if the main air tank is low on pressure the bags have always held their air in the past. Any and all suggestions are appreceiated as to why the other 3 bags are deflating.
