Link UltraRide question

I have a 2006 F550 with the Link UltraRide chassis air suspension kit on it. Does anyone here have this system on their truck? This system has been great however I recently am battling with a leak. The last two mornings I found the truck completely “dumped” with no air in the system. I filled the system and raised the truck to ride height last night and searched for the leak. I was able to hear the leak and took a few pics of the valve that is leaking the air. I think it is the Dump valve also known as the 3 way valve. If anyone has info I would be greatly appreciated. I’m gonna call Link and see what they have to say. Thx

Here are the pics!!! Pictured is the valve where I located the leak. There is an elbow at the top with one line then there is a Y with two lines then toward the bottom there are two elictrical wires then just bellow that there is a black (looks like a knob) thing with a small brass colored button in the middle. This is where the air is leaking out from, the very bottom of this whole assembly.

I have the same system on a f450. I eliminated the dump valve and level controls and went with in cab gauge and switch controls. This gives me the ability to control each bag individually and I am able to level the truck side to side when hauling my camper.

Yes thats the one. The other possible part needed is the Level control valve. I wont know till I do the test in the morning. Thats part number 800M0197.

I hope its the 3 way as it is much cheaper. oh who is Darren and where does he work...??

Did some diagnostics on the Link UltraRide system today. Turns out it is the 3 way solenoid valve. It's ordered and hopefully it gets here soon. Funny thing is the system seems good to go right now, of course now that parts are en route.
