XCS freightliner airbag temporary raise?

Somewhere on here or at another forum I read something about a mod to raise the xcs chassis a few inches on a temporary basis for going over excessively tall speed bumps or those abrupt inclines one finds at some parks and now cannot find it again.

I've always looked at the clearance on the front skirt of our Palazzo with trepidation and have dragged it a few times, does anyone know of this mod or where to go to look it up?

i had the local body shop mechanic add extenders to the air bag riser rods (3) to raise up approx 3 inches front and rear. Fools the air rise system to raise coach higher. Installed on a separate switch and works like a charm. Resets to "normal" mode when coach parked and air ride bags deflated, also can be reset by switch off. Had issues with parking off a street with a dip and crossing a curb.
