Don't damage your fender too

I have a 39 ft 2000 Damon Escaper on a spartan chassis. The air bags don't maintain their height more than a day or so. I parked with the wheels turned hard right and left the coach for a couple of days. When I came back I found the fiberglass fenderwell on the front right side resting on the wheel and a three inch section of the fender was broken off. Just thought I'd pass along the wisdom of my usual learning curve ( hard knocks )

Wow I am sorry to hear about that. I do not have that unit but I have friends that do and I will pass that tip on to them.

I have a 2006 Tuscany that does the same thing and I never thought about that. Thanks for the heads up.

Do you have larger-than-stock tires? If not that sounds like an engineering error. There are quite a few times where I turn my wheels sharply to tweak my RV alignment and leave the wheels turned. I've never had a clearance problem after dumping the bags.

Well that is just poor design. It's really unfortunate you're going to pay the price. I think most of us would have done this to our rigs if we had a similar lack of clearance, I know I would have!
