DZZippy Posted September 27, 2022 Share Posted September 27, 2022 Hello all, I apologize for the length of this I posted this question a bit ago and never got a response which I though was intriguing. Either my situation is very unique and never been handled in the Monnacoers before or everyone has been busy. Our HR Imperial 42 PBQ originally had a Inteliride air system that controlled air leveling, tag axle functions, and travel height. Inteliride was bought by Firestone and now has a parent company out of Ireland. I have done a lot of homework in this system. I talked to the parent company, techs state side that are familiar (very few), REV, Coburn where it was built by Roadmaster, just to name a few. At this point it appears that many people I talk with end up getting more knowledge from me then I do from them. This system was an option upon factory production along with the counterpart HWH 600 series. This system is very antiquated, difficult to obtain available parts, some parts obsolete, requires constant calibration (only with Windows XP software), and completely non functional in our coach. Since then, the decision was made to abort the system as we will have nothing but headaches from this point forward. Manual air ride height control valves have now been installed to keep the coach at least in “travel mode”. I still have to address the tag axle capabilities. I am a tech by nature so I can easily figure out some pneumatics and switching for tag dump and tag raise. Essentially we need to replace our system and the goal would be to replace it with similar functionality of the original Inteliride system or HWH series 600. I have had contact with HWH….no help unless I’m interested in Active Air. They have shut down the install shop and frankly I was told “We can’t help you”…..very disappointing. A company called Valid out of Canada has a great system that I would gladly install and currently they use it proprietarily on Spartan chassis. That’s where I have ran into additional issues with them. After speaking with program engineering, they have a system that would be perfect that I would install. However, Valid needs “approval” from a “Roadmaster” engineer. The Valid engineer and I discussed heavily in detail how I can install and program for the same functionally as I need. However, I still have yet to get a hold of someone to give me a good lead from Roadmaster/ Freightliner. The ultimate question…. Has anyone replaced their air leveling air system and with what? I plan on installing myself and have full capability. I could go on for hours with the time invested in the research. Thank you in advance to whomever.
