First thing I'am glad to see that we have a foum on this site, Here is my ? I have a 05 Sea Breeze 37ft. on a W24 that rides like a tank, (over pot holes, expansion joints and any other small bump) It has the factory Bilstein gas press. I have heard that changing to Koni's FDS will give a much better ride, Has anybody made this change. Thank's Ken

Sounds and though went from one extreme to another. The W22 2004 had shocks that were worthless.

I too have the W24 chassis on our 05 5376. First item to toss are the Bilstein shocks. They are worthless. I invested, (I use that term loosely), in a set of Koni FSD's a few months ago. They made the difference between I hate this coach to I like this coach a lot. Before we got them I was certain that the W24 chassis, on any coach, was not long to be in our family and a air suspended diesel would soon be. For the $1100.00 installed I think you couldn't spend the money in a better place. We will upgrade to a oil burner someday but for now the Dolphin is quite a pleasure to own and to operate.
