How to Install the Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System on a 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty


Shane: Hi I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to walk you through the installation of the Air Lift WirelessONE air compressor system on your 2019 Ford F350 Super Duty. Adding a compressor system to your vehicle is going to allow you to adjust the air pressure in your bags from the comfort of your vehicle. Anytime we want to hook up a trailer, we're not going to have to get out. We're not going to have to hook our hose up to add or decrease the air pressure.Your system is going to come with a wireless controller. This is going to allow you to adjust and monitor the air pressure in your bags.

It's going to have two presets on it or save modes. Let's say most airbags require at least five pounds of pressure to be in the bags at all times. Let's say you set your preset one at five pounds. If you get in your vehicle and you have left the pressure in it from when you towed your trailer last time. You're going to hit whatever setting you have it, either one or two.

You hit the button and it's automatically going to decrease the air down to that minimum pressure you have that set.Let's say you have your trailer loaded on there and you have . maybe you want 60 pounds in there. That's what you found is most comfortable when towing your trailer. You hit your preset two and it's automatically going to adjust that air pressure up to that whatever number you have it set at. And those numbers can be adjusted up or down by simply using the arrows.Here in this top left corner, that's your Bluetooth mode.

Over in the right corner, top right corner that's your battery. Tells you what your battery is. You're going to have two presets. That'll say P1 or P2 if you have them preset. Right now I have it preset at five psi, because that's what the minimum is that the manufacturer recommends in the bags.

Now we'll go up here and we'll hit this second or the button with two dots on it. It'll go to my second preset, preset 2. And you can set that for maybe you have one camper or something that you pull all the time or one trailer. You can set that. So all you have to do is hit that button. It'll automatically air your bags up to whatever preset pressure you have.Now if you want to deflate or inflate the air, you just use the up and down arrows. So you want to change that pressure, push the up and down. You're going to have an arrow that's going to show right down here. If it's pointing up, that tells you it's inflating. Then I'm going to let it air up to 27. The arrow's pointing down, that means it's deflating. Very simple, very easy to use.So this is what the app looks like when it's downloaded on the phone. You have your arrows to adjust your air pressure. You'll hear the compressor kick on. Right up here it's telling you the current pressure. You have presets there. It gives you options for three different settings. Simply touch them, and increase or decrease your air pressure depending on what load you have in the vehicle.Whether you're using the wireless controller or your cell phone, it's going to allow you to inflate your bags up to 100 psi. One thing to keep in mind, because it's a wireless system, you lose the ability to inflate your bags individually. Say you have an off center load, because you're using a wireless system, they're going to hook both bags into one port and it's going to air and deflate both bags at one time.Another nice feature about this system is it will maintain air pressure in your bags. Let's say we're traveling, we have our trailer on. We have that setting at 60 psi. If we had anytime lose any pressure or it drops at all, the compressor system's going to automatically kick on. It's going to adjust it back up to whatever that setting is.One thing to keep in mind. In order for the system to maintain the air pressure in the vehicle or in the bags, the vehicle is going to have to be in the on position or running. It will not work if the vehicle is turned off.To begin our installation, we need to determine where we're going to put our compressor in our manifold. Our manifold can almost be mounted in any orientation. The only thing is today is don't mount it with the plug side facing down. Now they also say towards the center of the vehicle. Problem is with vehicles like this there's not a whole lot of room on the inside of the frame rail to put a whole lot of stuff. They either have wires running through, hard lines running through. So what we're going to do is our compressor's actually going to be mounted on the inside up to the bottom. And our manifold, I'm actually going to mount right here. This bracket here is going to help protect it. Where my compressor's going to be mounted is right here. You want to make sure they're within 32 inches of each other.I'm going to mount my compressor here and I'm going to run my lines right over the top. I'm going to have two ports for airlines. One airline's going to go back to the back. The other airline is just going to the compressor and then you just have a red wire to connect between the two. So when mounting these, you just want to make sure you're staying away from extreme heat and moving items.Then about there, I'll take a 5/32" drill bit and I'm going to use it as a template. Go ahead and get one in first. I'm going to take one of our Allen head bolts. This is a self tapper. The reason we're drilling a pilot hole first is because the frame is so thick and we don't want to damage the bolt itself. We're going to be using a number four. Then we're going to repeat that same process for this hole and for this hole on top.Then you can see where I mounted my compressor. My manifold's actually right on the other side of my frame rail, right on this edge. That's where you mounted that. For your compressor, you're going to have hex head bolts that look like this. They're going to be self tappers. Again you can orientate this however you want. I chose to do the air fitting over here, so I can run my hose right from here, right over top the frame and into the manifold. This black wire is a ground. So we're going to put it under one of these bolts. I've got three of them in already. I'm going to do my hole for this last one. And then I'll pull this bolt back out and put my ground wire in. We'll take our ground like that, line it up with the hole.Now as far as the wiring, wiring's going to be very simple. You're only going to have four wires. Your plug is going to plug directly into your manifold. You're going to have one short wire. This is going to connect to the red wire coming off of the compressor. The red wire coming off the compressor's actually going to have a fitting on it. Cut that fitting off and you're going to add the heat shrink butt connector. It's going to come in the kit, like that. We're going to take our plug and . to take this plug off, if you ever have to, you just push this tab right here. You want to make sure when you put it in place and you lock it on to the manifold, you push this red tab down. That's going to actually lock it on there. Push it on.Then our wiring, this is going to run over top our frame. It's going to hook to this red wire on our compressor. The other three, you're going to have a black, red, and a pink that are tied together. Black and red are going to go to your battery. Pink is actually going to tie to a ignition source, a 10 amp fuse in your fuse box.For my wiring I need to run to my engine compartment. You can see the factory wiring that runs right along the frame rail. All I did is took the zip ties that come in the kit. Zip tied it right to it, right up here. I went over the top here. I just followed the wiring right up to the engine compartment. What I did is I dropped, I actually have some airline tube. I dropped some airline tube down and hooked my wire to it to pull my wires up.So you can see right along the top, I put some wire loom on it. I drilled a couple holes in the plastic and just zip tied right along the top of the engine there. Over to the passenger's side, my fuse panel is over here. And then my second battery is over here. As I mentioned, we're going to have three wires that we're going to hook up. One's to the fuse panel. The other two are to the negative and positive side of the battery. The pink one that goes to the fuse panel is actually optional. You don't have to hook this up. If you are going to hook it up, what this does is as soon as you hit the key or the ignition, your compressor's going to kick on. It's going to air your bags up to whatever you have it set at.Most airbags require at least five pounds of pressure to be in the bags at all times. If you have your controller set at five pounds for the minimum. Again, as soon as you hit the key, it's automatically going to make sure that it has five pounds in it. If it doesn't, if it's lost a little bit of air overnight, it's automatically going to turn on, it'll kick that up. If you don't want to put this in, you're just going to hook up your negative and positive wire. Your red and black wire to the negative and positive side of the battery and you'll have to use a controller to manually turn your air compressor on.For our ground wire, negative side of the battery. We're going to cut it down. Strip it back. Add on the ring terminal that comes with the kit. Crimp it down like that, 10 millimeter socket. So this nut is not meant to come off of here. So what we're going to do is get a little gap in between the nut and the bracket that's holding it on, kind of like that. We're going to take our ring terminal. You're going to cut a little bit out of it just like that. I'm going to take this and slide it right in between, just like that. And then we will tighten the nut back down.For our red wire, it's going to the positive side of the battery. Cut it down, strip it back. We're going to have another heat shrink butt connector. Go ahead and add it on to the wire. You're going to take your fuse holder, it'll look like this. Cut it in half. Strip back both ends. We're going to put one end into our butt connector. And our second ring terminal on the other end. Take our heat gun and we'll shrink up or whatever heat source you have, shrink up that heat shrink butt connector. I'm going to route it underneath like this. It stays a little hidden. And then I'm going to connect it actually right here. We're going to make sure when we make this connection, that the fuse is not in the holder.Once you make that connection, then you can add your fuse if you're doing the negative and positive side without the ignition source. I'm going to go ahead and do the ignition source and I'll put in my fuse once I make that connection. Now to use an ignition source fuse, we want to make sure that we test all of our fuses. We want to use at lease a 10 amp fuse or lower. And we want to make sure it only gets power when the ignition is turned on. There's a five amp fuse right in the back back here. It's actually to the ring sensor. I'll go ahead and show you. This is a 10 amp fuse up here in the front you can see it has power even with the ignition off. Then if we test this five amp fuse, we don't have anything.So now what we need to do is we need turn the ignition on. We're going to pull that fuse. Once we turn the ignition on, there's only going to be one side down inside of the fuse holder that is going to be hot or it's going to make this light come on. That's the side we need to hook our fuse tap to. So now with our ignition on, we'll test both sides. So that's going to be the right side or towards the center of the engine compartment, and that's the opposite side. So we know that the left side, while we're looking at it, the left side of our fuse is going to be the hot side.So what we'll do and the fuse tap doesn't come with a fuse. It's going to look like this. See if I can show it to you. Real small, it's going to have a little hole right in the bottom. We'll take our fuse. We're just going to slide it onto one of the legs here. It goes on just like that. We want to make sure that that fuse tap is on the outside or towards the outside of the vehicle when we put it back in. I'm going to go ahead and shut the ignition back off. We'll take our fuse, put it back into its same spot. Make sure you push it down into place. You can see I have it on the left side of the fuse, which is the hot side or the output in the fuse panel itself.Now we'll take our pink wire. We're going to cut it down. We're going to add a female spade connector. Again, the spade connector does not come with it or come with the kit. Get our fuse cover back on. Go ahead and add our fuse. On our manifold, we're going to have two airline ports. We're going to have one here, we're going to have one here. The one that's closest to the plug is the one that goes over to the air compressor. Again, my air compressor is mounted in there. I just went over the top. And you'll see a little metal tip on the end of the air compressor. You're just going to take that and push it on to that tip.This line is the one that runs back and ties into your two airbags. I just followed this existing wiring here, all the way back, staying away from anything hot or moving. I ran it right along here with my line coming from my bag. Took my T, cut it down to size and I added onto the bottom side of that line or the bottom side of the T. My line going to my bag, I cut it, put my T in place. Came over just a little bit, cut the line again, added my second T. Took my line from my opposite side bag, ran it into this end. This part of my T is running to my inflation valve that's on the back of the vehicle. This is going to allow me to inflate my bags if for some reason my compressor stops working.I just routed here, zip tied it here and I got it mounted right to my bumper on the back side. The reason I don't cut my line down or cut it short. So if there's ever an issue with a line, you're always going to have a little bit of extra. You could pull that line out. You can cut the end off and reinsert it. If you cut it too short, you have the potential running out of line and then you have to buy a whole new roll of line.Now that we've got everything hooked up, we're going to go ahead and test out our system. You're going to have a controller. It's going to look like this. It's going to have a little tag on it. Pull it out. It's going to say pull on it, just pull it out. That's going to connect your battery on the inside. Now you're going to have to pair your controller. So what you're going to do is you're going to pull the fuse going to the positive side of the battery from the unit. Pull it out for five seconds and then reinsert it.Once you reinsert it, you're going to hit the controller to wake it up. It's going to go to a pairing screen. You're going to choose the number that it shows on there that matches your manifold. What it's going to do is it's going to pair and then it's going to come up with a screen like this. Once we got everything set up, we've tested it out, we know everything's working correctly, we're ready to go. Again I'm Shane with etrailer.com. I hope this video has helped you whether you're still deciding or installing the Air Lift WirelessONE compressor system on your 2019 Ford F350 Super Duty.
