After 15 years the compressor for my air bags finally gave out, I’m looking for recommendations for a replacement. I’d like one that would fill faster than the old one.

My compressor is extremely slow to fill and bleeds off over night, never bleed off before. Id like a bigger compressor as well. But don't know which one to buy. Im looking at Firestone WR17609377 as my replacement

Its the replacement for the one that went bad. I researched it and it is supposed to be a good replacement

The second compressor came in today, Same size as the first one.Before I replace the compressor, I might just replace the switch, I do have a spare.

The problem is some days there's air in the bags and others the bags are empty. Somedays when I try and add air to the bags they will not fill, or extremely slow to fill.

On days in Nebraska where the weather got up to 80deg, no pressure loss over night, Days were it got in the 30s it would loose all the pressure

The other day I came home from Nebraska pulling the 5th wheel (12hr drive) and did not loose any pressure. Once I got home and unhooked from the camper, Over night (8hr) the bags lost pressure.

Makes no since, But I do have a spare switch so I will try that first.

New compressor is in and it works very well. Quiet compared to the old one, airs up faster

I found the air leak, Its coming from the port on the switch. I changed the line and installed a new switch and still leaks. I guess I need to find a way to stop it

I used soap and water in a spray bottle to verify where it was coming from
