Hi Rick, thanks for the information. I need to check for some leak too because
I have the same problem or maybe is anotherB than Bill. My battery is dead
with my cut-out switch
off. Probably is the battery but checking for some leak is not a bad idea.
VIN 2148

 My switch is a 85-100, but the compressor I use is only rated for 110 psi so
I like to keep it safe, I have 2 check valves one at about 18" from the
compressor and one more on the compressor side of the switch just before the
switch. I do not depend on the "built in" valve in the compressor. IF
you need
another check valve let me know I found a deal on a box of 100 last time I
a car so I have about 90 left.  A leak of 4 psi in 2 hours is very hard to
find, it could be anywhere including a fitting, one of the solenoid valves or
a porous line.
 good luck
