Red face Handling on a 26' Winnebago E450 Coach

Does anyone have any suggestions on the handling of
a coach on rough roads? I have a 2009 26' Winnebago Chalet
with air bags on the rear. The unit seems to be bounce a lot
on rough roads. Everything in the cabinets is tossed over
when I open them. Same with the frig. Any suggestions
would be appreciated. I have retaining rods in the frig, and
trays to place items in the cabinets. The air bags have 60 lbs.
of air.

Thanks.

sumo's will help you out a ton

maybe 60 is too much pressure...I would start at 25psi and move up 5 psi at a time...

measure the coach at zero and see how much you raise it

tire air pressure has a big effect on ride and driveability. Weigh your coach and get front and rear weights and then reference the tire manufacturer's pressure charts. In my coach the charts recommend 55# front and 70# rear. I'd also lower the air bag pressure. Good luck

I run 50# in my rear air bags. My ride is more on the soft side and does not bounce at all.

I have a Itasca 26Q

I have a Cambria that I run 60-70 in air bags depending on how heavy we are loaded. It helps to keep any swaying from passing trucks and wind. I put new Bilstein shocks all around and it seems to ride great unless you are on some of these unmaintained interstates we get on once in awhile.
