Manual air bag dump system

Got all my pieces to tackle the manual air dump operation. I will install the two ball valves between the air bag tee and valve in case valve fails, that way I can close the valve and still have air in the bags to make it home. The (Momentary on)manual switch I plan on powering from the accessory position of the ignition so they can't be dumped will driving accidently. The exhaust is adjustable so I can control the lowering of the unit. I will cut a plate to mount these all onto the cross member at the air bags. I will send pics and part numbers upon completion and it working . I am sure this will help with the auto leveling and possibly keep from lifting the Motorhome off the ground and stressing the body.

Not sure where you're planning to get your ignition source from, however, I found something, working on my auto-gen issue last week that may be of help:

In the battery compartment, on the aux start solenoid, there is a lead for switched ignition. It might be easier pulling from there, rather than all the way from the fuse block or inside the engine compartment.

I did. Here is a copy of the entire print. PM me your email and I can send you a PDF version, which might be easier to zoom into, if you like:

So this lead only powers up when the key is on the accessory position?

I would use the tv cutout relay circuit. Install a solenoid on that leg and use a normally closed circuit. That way when the engine is running the circuit will open and you will not be able to energize your air solenoid. Once the engine shuts off the solenoid will drop out and the circuit will be powered. Use this suggestion based on what you paid for it. I.e. Free advise is worth every penny.

This only energizes when the key is on / engine is running. This is also the source for the tv cutout relay circuit. In this photo, you can actually see the purple wires for the cutout relay.
