2013 Seneca 37FS Suspension Question?

Wondering if anyone had any ideas or thoughts on "softening" the feel of the ride in my 2013 Seneca 37fs. I love everything about my coach, but its a really stiff ride in the back and its nearly unbearable at times for family riding in the back. I know the 37fs has the auto adjusting rear air bags.....but i didnt know if there was a way to manual adjust, and if I should even do that.

Someone else had mentioned installing a Blue Ox TigerTrax, but from what i understand that helps to limit rear sway and casting of the coach which should make it drive better...but I dont really have a problem with that... (though maybe every little bit helps)

For me its more an issue of the up and down at the back of the coach, porpoising i guess its called....but its REALLY stiff..like riding in the back of a pickup truck...if that makes any sense.

Thoughts?? Thanks for the help!

What are your weights? If you are running light they will be stiffer. If you are overloaded they will be bottomed out and solid. You have to find your in the middle.

Air ride should have a link rod that is connected to a valve that increases or decreases air pressure based on the ride height. One end of the rod is connected to the axle/suspension and the other to frame. It is supposed to maintain a constant ride height, so if heavier load it increases airbag pressure. Or conversely lowers pressure if less load.

Just a thought, maybe your rod length is incorrect or needs adjustment? If you crawl underneath you should see it somewhere around the rear axle. Would be a harsh ride if it allows to bottom out.
