Maybe unhook the line to the bag from the height control valve, fit a Schraeder valve, and use shop air.  Don't blow up the bag!

No one has mentioned this here, so maybe I'm mistaken, but I had always heard that GMs were monocoque, dependent on the skin for structural integrity.  Therefore cutting any holes for slides or relocated doors was like cutting a hole in an egg.  Unless you correctly framed around the hole, one had a good chance of major problems.  I know my '04 has very little framing.  Eagles, of course, are considerably different.
Not to  be discouraging, just cautious.
Good luck.

Sounds like a good bus. Air leaking from 120 to 80 psi in 4 hours is normal.

The guy told me the Brits don't make computers because they cannot figure out to make one leak oil  Shocked

Thanks for the suggestions, I have a feeling I'll be hunting down leaks for some time. I attempted to back it onto ramps this weekend and now have it stuck partway up the ramps as the drive axle has no load and the tag axle is partially on the ramp. Fun stuff, I did disconnect the levelers in an attempt to manually raise the rear but it doesn't seem to have any air supply.

Thanks again,

You know why the British drink their beer warm, right?

Because Lucas makes refrigerators.

 The governor on your compressor is adjustable.>>>Dan (but you also need to stop the air leaks)

I would also consider if your leveling valves are passing air,  My Rears were working initially, but the front had an issue and when I replaced it with the first aftermarket unit, no joy.  finally got a simple one that worked, then when I got the bus home, the fronts stay up for many days, but the rears leak down in a couple of hours.  Still hunting air leaks on my bus.

Great point, thank you I think it's only getting up to about 80 psi. I will double check what it gets to. Will be much easier to get it up on the ramps with air in it.

Thanks again,

The 4905 and the 4903 do, in fact, use the same brake drums, front and rear.
