Default Bostrom Seat (air ride) what are the switches for....

So ive got THREE <air> Switches on my Bostrom seats -

1) (i know) is for height

the other two i am uncertain of -

1) for rebound/dampening ?? (but which one and which direction increases dampening)
1) for lumbar ?? (ive got a hand "crank" that adjust the lumbar in the back - when i play w/ this <unknown> air switch - i can feel NO change.

Usually with Bostrom seats that have 3 air valves, the other 2 control upper & lower lumbar. Not sure why they would have a manual control as well. If you are not finding the air valves doing anything maybe they are not connected????

the valves are definitely moving air - just cant feel anything, in EITHER seat.
