Last one. First floor access door/hatch removed. You can see the clutch air assist cylinder. There are three small air lines on the right.

Eric, that thing is coming along nicely, I thought you said you had not had a chance to work on it much. Sorry I cannot help you any on Eagle brakes.

I think there is an access cover at the front of the passenger level in front. If you are facing the rear of the coach and pull that cover up, the line in question is on the left. It has a regulator attached to it.

The front air line 002 jpeg is what it would look like from under the front looking back. After the lines go thru that bulkhead they bend left into the corner. That is where the regulator is located.

Thanks Charles. I have a love hate relationship with this thing. At times I get to looking at  new conversion mag and go at it until I get frustrated, confused, or just sick of it, then walk away for a while. The way the economy looks right now I better at least get it done enough to live in anayway!!!

I have more info on the mystry air line. It is starting to make sense. It comes from the top of the t9 inversion valve mounted on the rear end. The lines out run to the emergency ports on the dd-3 chambers. At the other end at the front bulkhead which the front suspension is carried by, it has a pr-2 valve and a check valve. That is where it is unhooked. Best I can tell be the schematic it goes from there to the front brake r-8 relay mounted between the front wheels. That way if you loose the service port on the back the inversion valve would switch positions at app. 40 lbs. This would allow the emergency ports to pull air from the front tank when the brake is pressed. This all makes sense to me. Any other ideas please chip in!! I have thought and looked at small scribble on the schematic for a lifetime!!!
