Leaning RV, need assistance

I am new to RVing (3 weeks) and I noticed the motorhome leaning to one side yesterday. It is a 1993 Allegro bay DP on a XC18RD chassis.

When we bought it everything appeared to be in good shape for the age and I knew that small things would need to be repaired but I had no idea that finding information or parts would be this hard to find. It is a solid rubber set of plate sandwiched together like stairs steps and one of the rear ones is sheared. I have pictures I will try to post.

I don't have any manuals for it at this time and what I have found online doesn't show this part on the chassis at all. I don't have a clue really of what to call it. I did see what looked like to be a aftermaket product called MOR/ryde that looks like what I may have.

Any information on where to buy replacement parts would be greatly appreciated.

Your RVs suspension is over 20 years old. Saying you load is balanced, Unless you upgraded the suspension, It may require new springs [leaf, coil, air] and shocks to correct the lean to say the least.

That is a Mor Ryde suspension nearly all the parts are available. Here is the single axle setup. http://www.morryde.com/downloads/tec...e%20Manual.pdf

And this is the tag axle setup http://www.morryde.com/downloads/tec...e%20Manual.pdf

I replaced the rubber springs on my tag axle a couple of years ago. Mine were not broken just starting to crack. Called MorRyde to order them, replaced both sides myself and a friend. If I remember right it was around $600.00 for both springs. Ask if there us a upgrade for more weight carrying capacity.

Thank you all for replying to my post. I have been in contact with MOR/ryde and they are helping me obtain the part I need. Just if anyone was wondering or may need the same in the future, each spring is $319.99 and there are 2 per side (4 total).

Thanks for the update. Although yours is different then my tag, it only uses one spring per side, you should feel a big improvement in the ride. I did with my tag.
