I know nothing about airbags but that looks like genius to me.

I also had a look at the water tanks while they were  out. When I fitted them I brought water level senders which have given me a problems with the water leaking around the sender.
I think the tank wall thickness is to thick for the sender, so I have changed the way the sender is fitted.

I brought two screw covers used for boats, cut a hole in the top of the tanks and fitted the screw covers.
Then after cutting of the plug to the display unit, (I had to do this to get the nut washer and seal of the sender unit, it also let me trim of the excess length of wire)I then rearranged the washer, seal and lastly nut after fitting the sender in the tank. I then soldered the wiring to the plug back on.

There is no leaks now and the senders can't fall out.

As I have finished the new air bag design, it is time to get on with some fitting in the camper and the Nisota.
I wanted a camera on the rear of the camper, so I have gone to a Digital Wireless System. This was not the cheapest or the most expensive, but it should work for me.
The receiver monitor can run up to four cameras, which at present I only have two. One of these has been fitted to the rear of the camper and the other on my Nissan.
I an still to work out where to fit the monitor, as well as the phone, which is only used as a gps and mapping device.
I have also started putting the carpet in the camper under the bed, and on the battery box lid

I am building this with a suck and see attitude, Smiley as I have no reference on how this might work.
But we took it for it first outing on the new Air bag system, and the pressure in the bags was reduced buy more than half to bring the camper to ride height. 60psi on the left side and 54psi on the right side.
The difference is due to the weight difference left and right sides.
I had a fellow camper follow me to give me feedback on the body role of the camper, he thought it now was very good. (he was a Police Man before retirement)
I am now back working on the inside of the camper as well as the 12v storage system.
