Bouncing Bounder 38N

Good morning....

I am looking for some opinions... I have a Bounder 38N Diesel, with now 42K miles... I have replaced the front shocks 15K ago with Blistens, added a stabilizer as well...

Still, I find it amazing that the rig shakes when sitting still at a turn and a truck passes... or even when the washing machine goes on spin circle..

My opinion is it is time for rear shocks.... but does anyone else have another point of view???

Many thanks! (as always)

Shocks are not going to stop that. Shocks are for lessening the up and down bouncing you get when going over bumps and dips in the road. If your coach bounces more than twice, it's time for new shocks.

I think your coach has air bags. Suggest you look into flow controls that are installed in the air lines to each air bag. There available in different flow rates. Mine are 1 lb for the front and 2 lb for the rear. We purchased at a rally, but I think that Roadmaster supplied them. And yes you need to replace rear shocks. About 40k miles is all that can be expected from original equipment shocks. I like Koni, and you have installed Blisten which have a little stiffer ride than the Koni. Either are good.
