Mike,    Once the sir passes through the solenoid air valves in the 6 pack it is its own system if you have no drop in the leveling bags the air leak is upstream of the HWH 6 packs.

Mike:
There is one area that has not been addresses that I found on my coach. The slide ram at the entry steps was leaking. I could not find a way yo access the ram with out tearing up the floor. I installed a isolation valve in the air line going to the air horn and slide which I close when I setup.

I'll check that area when I get under the front end. Thanks
