Air bags
Hi,

I know this topic is well covered.  I need to replace my airbags.  Blew one in NM.  The previous owner had a spare.  Like an idiot, I threw the old one away before getting the part number.

My coach is a 1996 U295.  Do I have the Firestone...

There are lots of companies that make the same sized bag that will fit. The Conti AS9448 is usually the best deal and made by Continental Tire and Rubber (German) Here is a page with most all the companies and parts numbers: AS9448 by CONTITECH -...

You can probably stick a tubeless tire plug into the small hole. The bad bag is usually in the rear with the hole in the back bag facing the tire.

Good to carry a tubless kit with you.

Thanks for the confirmation on the number.  I show the Conti as out of stock.  I found Blacktech in stock for $94 with free shipping.

Blacktech is part of a German firm with the actual bags made in Bursa, Turkey but opening factories in China also.

Probably only had 7 bags in stock and didn't want to bother sending a single bag. Easier to refund. Contitech makes dozens of different bags and doubt they no longer will make the AS9448. Blacktech make them for the same price. I don't see a...

I had ordered 8 of the Contitech's 4 months ago.  I got all mine in short order.  Hard to believe that Contitech would stop making them as they seem to sell out as soon as they are back in stock.

As far as ride height, I did not have to adjust...

Correct, the ride height valve absolutely controls ride height.

Just completed the air bag change out on my coach yesterday. I found that I didn't need to fully remove the fender covers but just the screws that allowed the lower portion to be pulled out. I only really needed that access for the rear axle...
