Shocks / Airbags for 2000 CC

I searched using the search function without success. I want to replace the airbags and shocks on my 2000 Intrigue but looking for source of the items. Going up to Oregon isnít possible. I want to get the hardware and then have someone locally do the installation.

Thanks all

Call Kevin. I got a quote from CC direct and Kevin was half the price. The problem was we couldn't cross reference them from the Country Coach number to something on the shelf at my local truck shop. Kevin was half the price from CC.

Not yet. Been working on some generator issues. Starts and runs for a little while. Shuts down. Starts right up and then dies about 5 secs later. Keep doing that and it runs for another 15 to 90 minutes. Then dies. Some parts on order. Unfortunately no PowerTech service folks in Las Vegas. Nearest one is Phoenix.

I had the same problem with my GENERATOR. The plastic plug on the side of the generator was the problem. I unplugged it and the generator works great. the wires on that plug goes inside so you can start the gen. from inside. there is a short somewhere in that wire set up. I go out and start the gen. and shut it off outside. I took it to a service shop and they worked for hours and couldn't figure it out. It works great if you leave the plug unplugged.

Please pray tell where that plug is? There are so many plug and wires on that darn thing.

Found plug and disconnected it. No joy. Started digging in the wiring along the top of the genset. Shorted out oil pressure switch without success. Then felt slight movement in pressure switch. Restarted generator and it’s been running for 2.5 hours. The replacement switch arrives tomorrow. Cautiously optimistic the problem is solved.

Now back to airbags and shocks

glad you got it nailed (almost). my genset once had problem to keep running, every time just ran a few seconds from start. it was fuel shut off solenoid. replaced that it has been 2 years no issues.

The service tech (Jeff Jones) at PowerTech has been a great help. He walked me through 5 things that could be causing the problem and how to check each.

1. High temp switch
2. Low oil pressure switch
3. Fuel shutoff solenoid
4. Voltage regulator
5. Split fuel line/fuel filter issues

Regarding airbags, I've heard that you actually have to inspect both front and rear (they are different) to make certain which ones are installed on your particular coach. Again, Kevin is an excellent resource and he has a chassis guy that he consults when he doesn't know the answer.
