Air Bags

I just recently finished changing out my rear air bags, shocks and 5 port norgrens. These companents were all original and approaching 16 years old. Just for fun, I cut open one of the air bags to check the condition of the rubber. The inside looked like new, no cracking or checking and the bump block on the bottom had a couple pieces chipped out from the air bag being collapsed and possibly driven at some point with no air.

Question for Factory Conversion owners

My name is Bob:  I'm a home builder! sounds like bus aholics AA.  Don't your factory conversions have tag axle lifts?  After reading the Blow out article   I take it the owner spent 13hrs on the side ofthe road because he did not.  Probably less  than $500 worth of parts--really not much to it. Thought that was part of standard coach.  Do converters Block them out?     Both of my coaches have them.      Bob

tag lift

I have never seen a prevost without a tag lift, BUT that does not mean that they may be out there.  My 1998 XLV has a tag lift.
