Hopefully you've got an air dryer on your rig.

I'm going to go ahead and assume that's a real thing, and hope so too. I'm pretty frightened to drain these valves when I get home. Just out of curiosity, what happens if these valves are always off?

Water builds up in the tank, which at a minimum naturally causes rust. Water can blow throughout your air system causing a number of problems, not to mention colder climate problems.

Does your bus do the PSSST every once in a while? That would be an air dryer. If not you need to learn to watch your tanks. Open the valve while it has pressure and see how much water comes out and what color it is. Doesn't hurt to have a bucket, and under pressure it can come out fast if you open the valve to fast. You just get wet a little. Keep your mouth closed.

I'm not super sure, I know when my psi reaches 120 it will make an awesome "PSSST" sound. Aside from that, it may not. But I also don't know a lot. I'm certainly concerned regarding this, I will take notes tonight what the water looks like after draining/how much pressure it comes out with. Thanks for all your help, you're saving me a lot of headahce hopefully.

It's always good to check your tank valves once in a while. I'm betting you've got an air dryer.

You're not a headache, you're just learning some things. I'm still learning things too.

Man this community is too nice. I'll have to get some nice bottles of sake to give to all you good people, if I have any money leftover after the bus.

It's a never ending cycle of one-upping. Not many communities online with such relentless kindness.

Thank you, your being encouraged encourages me to stay determined. I don't know if it's necessary to mention here but there are two material goods I have found immeasurable value in.

1. My shoplight
2. My bluetooth speakers.


Also, I have really appreciated the thought process of "well I didn't get as much today as I hoped, but whatever time I wasted today is time I don't have to waste tomorrow" (if that makes any sense). Also beer does a great job numbing fatigue.

Not that you asked, but I figured it's worth a mention somewhere.
