Well, the wallet certainly has taken a hit!

Still waiting for CoachNet to get back to me with info since they took my damage report.
CC wants $295 for each shock, other places are cheaper at 202.91, 184.99, 125.00, all plus shipping. I did find a set on eBay for $99 plus shipping, so for less than $120 I got a pair of new unboxed ones. Will be here next Wednesday. Now to got them installed.
Right now the DW and I just can't even get enthused about going anywhere in it due to all the problems.

Mr. D I feel for you. I can't imagine how frustrating all of this has been. Owning and maintaining any class A coach can be frustrating at times but you have certainly had more than your share of challenges.

In spite of it all, you will get all of this worked out and you have a stunning coach that is well constructed.

Wishing you many happy miles.

Well, we didn't buy a MH to save money but the engine mess is just that!! Would really like to get out this weekend but with the broken/leaking shocks and so much other stuff to do it's just not going to happen.

Yes, the rig is well built and I need to learn a lot more about it. I saved enough on the shocks to pay the speeding ticket I got in CA on the way back from Phoenix! First ticket in about 25 years too. The rig is just so much smoother and quieter than the Dutch Star and I let the speed get too high on a downhill run.

Konis arrived today, look exactly as pictured, no instructions but they're on the web. Now to figure out if I can even do the change. I do have a 600 ft lb air wrench but not sure about access with the wheels/tires in place.

You mentioned the rear shock on the driver's side...but is it the tag or the drive axial? I would think it's the drive axial, as it's position when getting towed would be even more extended. But I'd also take a close look at the other axial (if you haven't already ~ you probably have!)

Yep, drive axle, do need to check the tag axle too. Have it parked in beside the house but I need to go get a few loads of gravel as it won't level enough to put the slides out nor even open a couple of the storage bay doors.
