    I haven't had a chance to get under the van and have a look yet, but I found yesterday that one of the air bags is losing pressure. The thrust of my question is do these bags puncture or perish? I thought they was bullet proof. I am hoping the loss of pressure will be a connection becoming lose or something simple. I'll have some time on thursday to get underneath and see what i find. I just hope the bags are ok.

    any advice or ideas gratefully received

    cheers

    Hi if they are anything like the ones on hgv they burst with a loud explosion as I have heard many times whilst loading tankers on uneven ground.

    Pump them up to maximum pressure, it should re seal the tube connections.
