Re: Dloe or 4-PLay manual valves?

I have the Dloe valves. I haven't installed them yet though. The finish on them is really nice.

I have heard a lot of negative reviews about AirJax. The original owner (Little Larry) apparently was forced out of the company and the machining process was changed. Larry posted about it on FB and explained why people were having more issues with leaking due less finishing in the machining process.

The thing i like with the AirJax valves is you can control the speed of air up and release...Correct me if i am wrong, but the Dloe valves are either on or off...correct?

I havent installed them yet so I am not sure. Side note, make sure you get a bracket to mount them. Switch Suspension sells them as a kit but doesnt sell the bracket separately. Not sure how I would have mounted them without it.

dloes is also variable, the further you push the switch either way the greater the flow

Pulled the trigger the other day on AirJax fourplay. Valves, packing, service, communication was/is excellent. Send Jay your questions if you have any, always appears to be available.

Re: Dloe or 4-PLay manual valves?

I went with the Little Larry's fourplay set up. I believe I was one of the last ones before the rebranding. I did have a O-ring failure pretty early on. It was about a year after I purchased the valve set but only a month or two after getting the Burban on the road. I called them (now it was Air Jax) and after explaining what was happening they sent me a complete set of O-rings at no charge. During the O-ring replacement I became apparent to me that the failure was likely due to little or no lubricant on the valve pistons and O-rings. Here is a link to the tear down in my WMB thread. Since the O-rings have been replaced I have had zero issues with the valves.

And here is a link to how I mounted the valve set. It continues on to the next page of the thread.

As a side note I initially was going to use the dloe valves but I after numerous attempts to make contact with no answer I gave up.
