rv - Troubleshooting Air Compressor

Air compressor wouldn't run. When I tried to run it by putting one side in the "raise" position, all the air came out of the bag on that side. Turns out an air line had a hole in it.

I did some troubleshooting and found that one of the power lines to the compressor relay was loose. Jiggling it started the compressor. If it happens again, I will take the leads off and clean them up but so far so good.

With the compressor running, I found the air leak in the lines. Turns out is was the only "new" line on this rig. It is a small section. I replaced it with proper red colored line and we are back in business.

I then fired up the air compressor and let it fill up the bags. It would only build 85 PSI, even after letting it run for about 15 minutes. Looks like the air compressor is due for a rebuild.
