Air intake nozzle or cable?
« on: April 24, 2016, 05:43:23 PM »
Purchased a 1989 Dodge Ram van conversion, Islander.  It has an "expanded" body of fiberglass.  On the driver's side, at the rear corner, there appears to be a valve/nozzle.  At first it almost looks like a coaxial connection, like a wall connection for cable.  A closer look and it appears that it may be an air intake nozzle, like the tires.  Any ideas?

Possibly an air line for air bags on the rear axle.  Look under the rear end to see if you have air bags mounted above the axle.  Just a guess on my part.

Air shock just look under the van at the rear axil. If you see tubeing going to.the shooks. You have air shocks.     When you air them up no more then 100lbs

And don't run them with no air, keep at least 20lb. At least that's how mine were years ago when I put them on a pickup.
