    So im commin home from wal-mart in my topkick and i notice that my air keeps bleeding off every 30 seconds or so. So i got it home and parked it cuz i dont wanna burn up the compressor. I'm guessin its the cutout switch but i'm still learnin bout the whole airbrake thing. Help!

    I would say you have an air leak somewhere. Build up the pressure chock block the wheels, shut the truck off, take off the maxis and listen for a leak. And it takes alot to burn out one of the compressors on one of them... not to say it couldnt happen but you know.

    Governor,I must agree

    Any issues I ever had where taken care of by changing out the governor.I think about $11 new.
    That is as long as you arnt loosing air faster than your comp can keep up with it.You should be able to hear that leak.lol
