Aproplerly maintained EAS is just as likely to fail as any other wear item on the rig. Fix the sytem and fix it correctly and you will easily have another 60K+ miles out of it. It is no different than scrimping on brakes or pinching pennies and skipping oil changes.

True, but there are alot of wear items to EAS. And outside of a complete overhaul which definately wont
be covered in warranty you still will have periodic failures which for me is not acceptable when im not
at home to take care of them. I like the EAS system, but I actually dont trust it. It seems to be the weak
link when the truck gets 10+ years old. Again if I didnt travel for work different story.

You could go for GEN II bags and with the money you save give the compressor and valve block some new seals and replace the dryer dessicant. Will prevent most if not all of the problems you're afraid of without the need to castrate it. ;)

compressor and block overhauls are DIY items, can be done in a weekend with basic tools, and inexpensive enough you don't need the warranty to cover it... get them to cover the GenIII's, full set, and rebuild the compressor/block yourself.

Shop said all four bags leak, Warranty inspector coming there tomorrow. Will talk with shop
after inspection and what they will pay for. Shop uses LR parts so looks to be expensive, along with
tie rod's and b.tt warmers. Think warranty is over when you exceed value of truck.
