Suspension - bags and shocks

I like preventative maintenance. My Intrigue has 13 year old shocks and air bags. Rides and drives true and smooth. The previous owner replaced one air bag due to a leak. At some point do you swap them all out or wait for failure? Same question with shocks. Tanks.

Bags last amazingly long, but if one has already gone.....you could replace them all for piece of mind. I'm like you, I like maintenance, I hate failure. Plus if one fails on the road.....it's personal preference really.
As far as shocks go, are they leaking fluid?
Does you coach bounce or porpoise going down the road? If yes to either, it's time for shocks.

The coach rides firm. Doesn’t bounce. Shocks are not leaking. OMC set the front shocks to firm.

My 1995 still has original shocks and bags, but only at 108,000 miles.

Our 04 Intrigue porpoised like crazy on a few spots on I-90 were waiting for RV Country to finish some work negotiated upon purchase told them about it and they said they could not duplicate the issue.

Took it to Premier RV in Oregon for some other work and was told there were no...again no... rear shocks what so ever installed. There was the hardware and bolts for the shocks but nothing there.

The front shocks were set to soft to compensate. its amazing we didn't have it worse all the time.

Getting to the point. Original air bags, original front shocks and new rear Koni's
set to firm.

Its got to get better

Will find out next week
