They are called a bulkhead fitting, I brought them on ebay, $14.59 for 5 x  12mm fittings.
They must be available locally but I have not found them at my local stores.


Thanks for that.

I always find it easier to get things from eBay China.

I am not to far away from getting the camper ready to test, so I am revisiting the controllers for the air bags.
I first went with simple air paddle controllers, one of which I could hear it leaking air. In retrospect I should have pursued the leaking unit from the seller but I was not sure if it had a warranty or not due to the time from when I brought them.

I then thought go electrical controllers, this was a bad option, in the end as it just made things more complicated than they needer to be.

I looked at a seller on Ebay the other day and they were selling a air paddle controller similar to my first idea but the tubing was a push onto a barb.

I decided to contact the seller directly, so after a google search I found them and rang them up.
We talked about a few things, including my camper build,  as this is why I rang regarding the paddle controllers.
I commented that my air bags slowly leaked down, and that I had  pulled them down a couple of times to try to rectify this but with little avail. It was only a slow leak down but it was enough that I thought I would have another look at them before finishing the camper.

I went ahead and ordered the paddle valves from them, through Ebay, and a few days later my parcel arrived.
But it was not as I expected. It was a large heavy box, and once I opened it I new why.

David and Venita from Thor Air Suspension had sent me two new air bags and improved end plated to fix the leak down problem, even though I had not brought the original units from them.
Also a stubby cooler and tube cutter as well with a letter of explanation.

They have not asked anything from me but I thought I should mention what they have done for me on here. Though I will let them know how I find them and keep them posted on how my build is going.

I have now fitted the new air bags, along with the new paddle valves and things are looking up, airbags that is,  Smiley as they are still up sitting at 75psi.

The back looks a little untidy.

Along with the air lines.

Looks like it is coming together nicely John.  Very good customer relations there I must say.

I have finished the front and side inside walls, the inside back wall is a removable panel, so I can access the rear actuators, so I can fit that when the camper is nearly finished.

I now have it ready to remove the roof so I can sheet it, so I have taken it down to my brothers shed so I can lift it of using his lifting gear.
