    Company is leasing out a Binder straight truck for a moving job from KC to New England. It has a electronic switch for air dump on rear axle for lower load height. It stays lower when engine is idling. But once you shut it down it reinflates! Anyway to prevent this?

    How about just not pulling the red knob when you park?

    This straight truck does not have the RED manual air dump for suspension. Only the electronic switch.

    Turn the engine off first, then turn the key so only the battery is on, then dump. I’m memory serves you will have to push the switch again to reinflate it when you turn the engine on. It won’t reinflate itself.
