Why do you dump the air suspension

    Just bought a 2001Holiday Rambler 40 ft diesel pusher. With air suspension and hydraulic leveling jacks. Read about dumping but nothing in the Manuel stating why or what the procedure is. Also have 2slides. This is new to us as our previous RV didn't have slides or air suspension. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

    Re: Why do you dump the air suspension

    Once you have the RV leveled, emptying the pressure from the air ride system does two things for you. It puts the weight of the RV on the jacks and not the suspension, meaning that it will not rock when you walk about inside. It also takes the pressure off of the air system and empties out any moisture to keep thins in better condition.
