The foot pedal brake valve is leaking badly in my eagle.  I noticed it when I returned from a trip last week.  My air pressure would drop from 120 to 0 in about 10 minutes.  I spent the better part of the afternoon trying to get the valve out.  No success yet.  It is really hard to get to the bolts. 

When I get it out I think it probably should be replaced.  Don't want to tinker with something so important and possibly have it fail Shocked and turn the coach into a 36k pound ram. 

I will work on it some more tomorrow.

I agree - just replace the valve.  A number of years back I had a leaking valve as well.  JD @ C&J Bus recommended are replacement instead of rebuilding.  I haven't regretted it.

I didn't have time to get to it today.  I saw those three bolts, took the nuts off two, but haven't gotten to the 3rd one.  I started to disassemble the foot pedal on the top side.  I guess I should stop that and make every attempt to get the 3rd bolt.
