Re: Idea for finding air leaks with air brakes
I'd be even more reluctant to do the soapy water thing. Brake systems are difficult enough to keep moisture out of them, can't imagine what soap & water would do to some of the comonents...make pressure relief valves sticky etc... As for air leaks, build up the pressure, shut it down and use your ears and hands to find the leak... you'll hear it hissing out, get close and start moving your hand along the air lines & components.. you'll find it...
You just might be a Redneck if...
...your motor home used to be a school bus!
...Your living room has a steering wheel!
...Your home has brake lights
