Didn't realize they went to Monroe's already in 2003. Thanks for the update.

The other thing I found - running tires at 100 lbs all around and I always run with full fuel and water. Makes the suspension work and I only get aprox ˝ gal per mile less – if that.

Very interesting that rv manufacturers change from one brand of shock or configuration to another from year to year. Wonder if it's by preference, engineering choice, or low bidder ?

A 100 PSI?? Sounds kind of high.
Sure it is not how you loaded the MH? Too much weight in the rear?
WHat box is on the W22 chassis?

I changed my front shocks on my W20 at 40,000 to Bilstiens.

17K on the coach when we bought it. Lots of pounding and porpoising on bridge expansion joints and concrete sections. The original shocks were Bilsteins and they were shot. Another Koni FSD convert. I still get a little porpoising, but the cycles are cut drastically.

As far as the porpoising, just as in sailing, keeping weight to a minimum in the ends will help in preventing it. Bob

It was a Triple E 35 foot Commander. A Heavy coach - all plywood etc. I now have its big brother - the Empress. The fellow I sold my "old" coach too came by (350 miles) for more information on the coach - he loves it now.
