And of course the big test was if it held air! I have read about problems with leaks if you don’t install the connectors just right, but everything seemed fine. I left about 20 lbs in each side overnight, so we’ll see tomorrow morning if all is okay.
I still have to tie the airlines in place and mount the compressor. That will be a job for Friday. And there isn’t really a convenient place to mount the guage and switches under the dash, so I’ll have to build some sort of bracket for it at a later date.
This was all a pretty big job, but the worst part was not having air tools and a proper work space. Anyhow, it’s pretty much done now and Sherman is looking forward to being able to carry around a full tank of fuel again! You can also use these airbags for leveling the motorhome when parked, to a certain extent. Just hit a button, and the back end goes up and down. And we have the system where you can adjust one side more or less than the other. Neat!
Nice day to relax!
Leaves starting to come out on the trees!
Rest up Sherman, because we have lots of driving to do still!
While I was messing with the air springs, Ruth did some laundry and some reading, and made supper for everyone. She made a chicken curry, and Pam came back from Charleston to join us and Pete for dinner.
I’m due for a break from all of this work (and so is my back, from crawling around under Sherman!) so tomorrow, we’re driving over to Congaree National Park for the day and meeting with readers and fellow bloggers John and Ellen to go for a hike.
