Ok last night as it didn't get below 4° all night. But previous few nights(all well below zero) the rear had sunk down.
Starting engine, suspension pump started working, and suspension came up in in about 20 seconds.
Don't have full airmatic, just rear self leveling.
Searched posts on here regarding airbags but not sure if this is a winter thing with this model or leaky bag, line, etc
Plugged in MBII and no fault codes.
Did read on a another post problems with ice forming on level sensor and when melted no further problems ensued.
Be grateful for any thoughts

Weather is 7.5° today, and it's stayed up all last night and today.
Got to be something wrong when temperature is low

Mine has not dropped over the last few days of cold weather.
It did drop overnight last year and the dealer diagnosed a leaky air unit so replaced them both under warranty. No dropping at all since then.
