Oshkosh air bag susp leans tony Craig 2-8-03

Re: oshkosh air bag susp leans Joe 2-8-03  
It sounds like you have a leveling valve problem. There are usually three valves on those chassis. There should be one in the rear, and two in the front. Look for the line filling the air bag and trace it back. A lot of times it is only a worn or missing bushing. See if you can find it.

Hi, somewhere is another valve or valves. Different year and models use different places. How level is the rear? An inch out of level in the rear can sometimes make the front 3 or 4 inches out of level. First look for other leveling valves. Then you might want to check pressure at each bag. That's where it becomes complicated as you need a set of guages. If pressures are similar, look for something else being the problem. Did this happen all of a sudden, or gradually? As far as the 8.2 I have a good knowledge of them. I would gladly exchange my 3/4 drive work for your 1/4 drive work, but since flying is one of my hobbies, I wouldn't want to make it a career although I maintain my own Cessna's.

If you have yet to find the problem, The actual "lean" is corrected at the rear of the motorhome. Near the axle housing you will find two of the same rod actuated valves like in the front.Here is where your problem will be found.
Whats the problem with your 8.2 DD-
got its serial number?
