Here's a couple of pics of my project. One picture is of the switch I have chosen for my golf cart. It is a 3 position for off, on, and on w/ accessory (lights in my case). The other picture is a screenshot of the legend plate I designed and ordered using the software. I'll chime back in with some more pics once the plate arrives and I have it installed.

Any details on where the pump and tank are installed, as well as some of the circuits/power?

Hi CarlB,

I'll take some pictures and post as soon as I can. I installed the tank and pump between the propane tank and steps on the passenger side near the front (2016 31FS). I didn't drill any holes. I used all-thread rod and angle iron to mount everything. I grabbed heavy power for the pump right from the rear battery and fused to the pump relay. The control panel gets power to activate the pump relay and air bag solenoids from the front battery accessory wire.

Can you add a parts list and cost of it all. I have a 2015 Greyhawk and I'm looking to do the same thing. Great work and very clean finish!

I was looking at that second picture and it looks like you got the ride rite kit from firestone part number 2458 or the hellwig 6102. Do you have a helper spring on your leaf pack? I am having issues because firestone offers two kits and I'm not sure which one to choose because I will have that leaf pack and the helper spring there in the way. Thanks btw for the quick reply on the parts list.

I have the 2458 kit. They don't interfere with the Hellwig helper springs that came on my 2016 Greyhawk. I used the heat shield that came with the kit on the passenger side, and I also had to move a brake line slightly to clear the drivers side bag.

It was not easy to install, mostly because of the top nut on the air bag. If I had to do it again, I would toss the luck nut they give you and use a regular nut and lock washer. It's hard to get to, and there is a lot of thread to work that lock nut down.

I hope this helps!

I figured it was the firestone bags. All of the firestone and airlift bags didn't have applications for the 2015 models and I was hesitant to get them for the 2014's. After talking with sd spring rep they convinced me the hellwig bags were the way to go and I pulled the trigger. I also went with an airlift compressor, but can't figure out if it can fill a tank then go to the distribution valve for the two bags (dual path) or if I need a separate compressor for it with an air tank. the compressor doesn't seem to be heavy duty like that one you purchased so ill have to see. Im looking forward to making that bracket and having it all installed. Thanks again.
