Great information guys! I like the idea of being able to pull the tanks and refill them. The BBQ 30# tanks are available almost anywhere so I might go for the tank switch idea and carry 4 of them.

George we leave ours aired up all the time 70 lbs in front and 80 in back while driving unless a long tipped road then I adjust to the tilt and so on. When parked we adjust to level at a campspot each corner. I have it plumbed to each corner through paddle valves. When we are parked at the ranch I leave it on one side full and the other side at 20 front and 30 in the back because where I park the bus has a tilt to it to drain water away from it. Never had a problem leaving air in it. Some drop it down because they don't care for the floating feeling while walking around in their coach when parked. Our's is pretty stable either way.
We also have a compressor that when we get ready to leave and need to adjust air before we get on the road from campground then I just turn a 1/4" ball valve and start the extra compressor we have in the bay and let it fill the brake system and then adjust the bags if needed to travel without running the engine.
You should be fine as long as you drain your tanks because shop compressors develop a lot of water and slug that will push through the system if you don't.

That's how it should start.

Our Prevost came with the levlow system. When we park, I use the control valves to level up the bus and then place wood blocks under the rear engine cradle and frame (4 points) because the rear will leak down in a few days while the front stays up and level for eternity. This keeps us level and solid when parked for longer than a few days (usually by the month or longer) and the bags aren't crushed from being deflated. We also have a portable compressor built into the area behind the front bumper that I can turn on to pre-air everything before firing up the diesel so we can get moving faster. I originally installed it to keep the bus leveled while parked, but I couldn't adjust to the sound of it coming on in the middle of the night. It usually only comes on once a day when parked like that though.

I recommend using two portable tanks with automatic changeover regulator. Much easier to get them filled and less likely to run out of propane.

I have two 40 lb tanks in my bus. I only use it for cooking, so it lasts a really long time (i.e. years) before I have to fill one. I could easily have used 20#ers.

With heat and water heater on LP, I would go with the 40#ers.

That is, unless you can get that free tank from Cliff, and have an easy way to get it filled.

Also, make sure your neighbor's yard has been watered before grinding in that direction.   Roll Eyes

   If or when you get manuals for your coach; (sooner is better), they have a chart with all the grease fittings. Copy it and have it laminated and handy every time you lube it. It may also state in manual about some quantity sensitive areas. Make sure you get the good grease and get a carton of eight, ten , or 12. Whatever they have in a carton.

What Jeremy I liked the looks of the little red specks on the Lexus white but the commander and chief here wasn't to keen on the idea
