brave 33V and airbag
I am living in The Netherlands and bought a Winnebago Brave 33V (model 2001) on a Workhorse chasis with some 15,000 miles on it in March 07.
The first year we have had a lot of problems but now (nearly) everything works well. The rig has 39,000 miles on its odometer now.
I like to have information on the following.
In September 2007 (20,000 miles) a have had a problem with my left front tire and I was advised to change (both) ball joints. After this repair ($ 1753) it worked well. This year in September (35,000 miles) I have changed all six tires and during that job the Good Year guy told me that my ball joints were 'loose'. In went immediately back to 'ball joint repair shop' and asked them to check these ball joints. They replied: "Nothing wrong with these ball joints, but you need to replace your airbags!" A $ 650 job.
The question is, I am not a technician - and my fluency in (technical) English is not as it should be - so I am not able to check what is really happening.
Could anybody advise me how I could check myself what is the real problem?
Thanks a lot
