I installed a unit from        http://www.hb-industries.com/   It was a 4 gage 4 valve unit 1 for each corner . Put in a check valve, a gage for incoming air off the acc. tank .Removed all org. air lines , plugged . Installed 4 new 1/4 " air lines ( 1 for each corner ) Now I can move up or down to level each corner when camping . Adjust back to org. ride height when on the road . Now the bus can sit for months and not be uneven as they don't leak like the rest of the air system.   Now you will have to call them as I don't see the system on there web site. I installed it in 2006,I think the cost was about $ 550. at the time

Similar  only with Firestone ride rights buttons and Gauges, Each set of bags is independent. 1 air supply line that goes to a cross and tee and then to each valve. 4 lines 1 from each corner to fill. The buttons are up/ down. down is exhaust.

Brake system is a separate system. My bags stay up as long as I want them to.
