Manual air bag dump system up date

First thing I found out two valve's are not needed. Just put in an additional tee off the valve and it will work. I had thought to drop unit quicker it would take one valve on each air bag but, the single valve with the exhaust set to 50% drops the unit flat in about a 65 seconds. The valve part number is 2w-160-10 from E bay. It is rated at 142 psi so within our requirements. The manual dump valve part number 511.010 is from Northwest RV supply (Oregon). The little chain on the exhaust is just in case it vibrates loose as the jamb nut on these are not very big. I ground the under coat off to provide a better ground then just coated it for rust prevention. Not a very big investment that may help level the unit easier and reduce stress on the body. Hope this helps,gord

My 2014 Seneca has a level control valve for each side. By tying them together will you not now allow air to go from one side to the other causing more sway on corners?

I was wondering the same thing. I am wondering if they changed the suspension plumbing on the newer units with air brakes?

I am running my regular trip into the Rockies on Wednesday, will monitor the leveling system as it is tied together at the valve it may affect the ride(sway) or height of the chassis. But do have second valve all ready to go if needed to maintain the independence of the rear suspension, will get it figured out, getting closer to achieving the solution we are looking for. Will update results.
