No air pressure on one of the two dash gauges. A ringing alarm and a red exclamation point on the instrument panel. A called off mini “vacation” to Florida. A return to the COE campground. That about sums it up.
The next day I started the Journey up and everything worked properly. No alarm, no red exclamation point on the instrument panel. Perfect reading on the gauge showing the correct air pressure.
Can’t be. But it was. So I decided to test it out several times during the day yesterday and again today, all with the same result.
Everything is working properly, the gauge reads the correct air pressure just like the one underneath it on the dash.
What could have happened? I theorize that maybe there was some moisture or ice in one of the air tanks that caused the sensor to malfunction and sound the alarm. With a bit of warmer weather, the moisture may have dried up or the ice melted. When I drained the tanks the other day when I was troubleshooting the problem, no moisture came out, but if there was some ice, that might have been the culprit.
Well, that’s what I think happened. Or we could have had a visit from Murphy’s cousin:
I’m going to keep starting the engine every couple of days and even take the Journey for a test drive or two. When we leave the COE for our summer travels mid April, the first thing we’re doing is head up to the Freightliner RV Service Center in Gaffney, SC for our annual service. If that pesky air pressure gauge acts up, at least we’ll be headed in the right direction to get it fixed.
