  • AIr Dryer Replacement

    I finally replaced our air dryer for preventive maintenance. Turned out to be a relatively simple project for me only requiring fairly basic tools.

    Our Champion came equipped with the Bendix AD9 air dryer. Seems to be a very solid reliable unit, just needs occasional maintenance to keep it going for many years. Ours was of unknown age, probably original 1992 vintage so I figured a whole new one was in order as I am trying to be VERY preventive maintenance oriented.

    Fleetpride Heavy Duty Truck & Trailer Parts has a great inventory of parts that work on our Spartan Chassis. I got their house brand AD9 for about $130 on sale. It is a brand new unit, not remanufactured. Hopefully it's as good as the original Bendix! Time will tell, I'll keep you posted.
