I use this feature on my 06 probably 90% of the time (fiancé has short legs). Anyway, we all know once we drive away the pump kicks in and the suspension rises slowly. The other day when I got in I just flipped he dial to normal and it seemed to fill an level off much faster. My question for those who use this feature, have you noticed the same thing?

Given the strain on the pump I am thinking the quicker up time will put less strain on the pump. Living in AZ where we do hit 110-120 in the summer I think the less strain the better.

Thoughts ?

TIA

I can't comment on whether it rises faster between the two methods described, but regardless it doesn't matter. The pump doesn't technically fill the suspension directly, it fills the air reservoir to a fixed pressure and the suspension is actuated based on that value. Once the tank gets low enough the compressor kicks in to refill it. The pump won't necessarily kick in just because the suspension goes up.
