    suspension ... release pressure ??

    when hooking up a trailer the air suspension is great... but when dropping trailer, vehicle is at a higher level, the jack gets maxxed out ... is there any way to release pressure to help when this happens ? or do i need to just block up trailer up much higher?

    As far as I know the pressure from the compressor should release itself at somepoint, the suspension should "level" itself off after trailer is unhooked.

    It would be best to have the truck running and the doors closed at the time you unhitched the trailer so the suspension system can detect the change

    If u don't want to have to wait, block it.... Mine goes up faster than it comes down

    +1...it drops as soon as you remove the load if the truck is running and the doors are shut.
