But, you did originally say that it would be squatting at times which again sounds like compressor logic/valving . The only way I can see the sensors causing this fluctuation is if one is dislodged and flopping around or full of water and shorting out.I was thinking it was a possibly a positioning sensor since is now stuck as high as it will go and not coming back down for almost a week
Not trying to drum up a sale, since I'm selling a new compressor unit but, sounds like a compressor failure due to the erratic nature.
The compressor is a stand alone unit (not interfaced with other systems, except for a few inputs) so everything except bags and two position sensors are in there.
The unit is not repairable except for a check valve which doesn't sound like your problem...Mike.
PS I would look at the two sensors near the bags/tires to make sure that they are still in place and both appear to be in the same relative position, the thinking is that maybe something flew-up and damaged one of them.
That seems like a quick and cost effective way to do this, all for the price of a tee. Perhaps you can provide a source for the tee so the OP can get rolling on this....Mike.When I "tee'd" mine off - I used the existing schrader valve inside the cargo area. Literally, just removed the air lines from the compressor and tee'd all three together.
does anyone no the size of the air lines??When I "tee'd" mine off - I used the existing schrader valve inside the cargo area. Literally, just removed the air lines from the compressor and tee'd all three together. I do believe I ended up cutting barbs off the end of them because of the type of tee I used. $3 and about 20 minutes worth of work. 4 years now, no issues other than occasionally having to add air - but that's expected. Make sure you are supporting the entirety of the weight of the rear - there is pressure in those bags/lines.
THANK YOU SIRI believe the lines are 5/32". I just looked at my amazon & ebay order histories and didn't find anything.
I found the thread I got the idea from on the 'voy site (unfortunately) : https://forums.trailvoy.com/showthread.php?t=30513&highlight=air+suspension
They do mention some McMaster Carr part numbers - you might be able to cross-reference them to a part at your local hardware store.
I seem to remember having to deal with compression rings on the lines as the new tee fitting had compression style couplings - but this was at least 5 maybe 6 years ago(thinking back - I know I said 4 years, but I moved 4 years ago and did this well before then).
This is the part that I see listed in the thread: https://www.mcmaster.com/5779K32 - although I seem to remember mine being brass for some reason. Again, my memory is a little foggy. I know I ended up cutting my air lines after dropping the compressor and I think it was to put the compression rings & compression nuts over the lines before inserting them into the tee.
The thread also mentions using gasket maker to seal up the connections - I did NOT do that and only occasionally have to add air, most notably when there is a significant drop in temperature. My bags actually hold air better after the $5 hack job than when I had the compressor. That dang thing struggled constantly. I attribute what little "droop" I have now to leaky (relatively speaking) bags.
I'll try and crawl under and take a pic if I can tonight. I also seem to recall having left over pieces - perhaps I had to buy a multi-pack to get the Tee fittings I wanted. I'll check my toolbox and spares shelves tonight, too.
Is that "t" featured on that link the exact piece, dimensions and all, that I will need? Also, this may be a really dumb question but, how and where did you reinflate the shocks to proper height?Yes you will want something like this, you simply push the tubes in and you are all set. I don't think that you will find these at a hardware store as they are mostly used in pneumatic industrial controls.
