So did you mean to say the right rear air bag will NOT inflate?

So the most likely cause for this is a failed ride height valve. The ride height valve allows the air into the bag and when they fail you will get no air going into the bag. Normally you will have one OR two ride height valves in the front and always have two in the rear, one for each rear air bag. The ride height valve will have a rod or lever on it and you loosen the clamp on the rod and move the rod up and down to set the ride height. I do NOT recommend an owner changing the ride height valve because there are dangers involved and the ride height needs to be set properly which normally means adjusting all the valves to get it dialed in. When you set the ride height the RV engine has to be running the wheels blocks and the engine in drive and if something where to happen then you can get seriously hurt.

I would get a hold of a mobile tech or shop in your area, most truck shops also know how to change and set the ride height but they will need to get the specs from Winnebago as each chassis is a bit different on the settings.

I would be VERY surprised if this is anything else, normally when all the bags fill except one it is a bad ride height valve, bro***** *****nkage/rod.

I hope this points you in the right direction.
