ISRI Driver's Seat
#1
I've discovered that my ISRI seat needs to have the air lines replumbed.  Someone had kinked off the supply line because they were unable to solve an air leak problem in the seat and although the majority of the controls, up, down, forward, backward, back tilt are electric it would be nice to have the air controlled portion of the seat, lumbar and flank support functional.  I've attempted to contact ISRI to obtain repair parts or diagrams but was told due to the age of the seat they no longer support it.
Does anyone have a diagram of the ISRI seat air supply for seats around the 2007 vintage? 
Thanks

I had the same problem with my seat 207 #816. Installed a NEW Knoedler Air Chief Seat W/ Cooled & heated 3 different lumbar supports and Vibrator.

Another approach is to replumb the system using air paddle switches, commonly used in air bagged hot rods. On the circuits for the lumbars, put a pressure regulator in line to keep from blowing the internal bladders. You will need full coach pressure on the air bag that floats the seat. A few of us have done this with the Recaro seats for the same reason, no parts for obsolete seats.

Thanks for all the replies. Perhaps a Google search for used truck parts suppliers is in order. My seat was just recovered with new leather a couple of years ago and I'd hate to chuck it for a new seat if I don't need to.

PM me and I'll send you the manual I have. For me it is the right family of seats but the wrong model. The easiest way is to put air back on it and see what is leaking. If it is a damaged hose you can probably repair it without a manual, just replace one line at a time until you are out of leaks. If you seat is like mine it takes a 4mm OD "plastic" hose that is not readily available. I found it at Monarch Automation, 513 874-6566, part # PUN-4X0, 75-SW. It was a little over $7 for 12ft. (way more than you'll need but had to make minimum). My coach has an air shutoff valve in the floor against the wall for the seat. It has proven to be handy when a line fails and you have big air leak while you're going down the road.

I sent emails out to North American ISRI seat distributors and Bob Seitz with Northern Engine and Supply sent back an email telling me that Kenny Wanke foreman at their Gillette, Wyoming location has had extensive experience with these seats.  Later this year if I've not solved the problem I plan on stopping in on the way to Spearfish, SD.  Thought I'd pass along the contact information in case anyone needs it.
