Seems your tires might be over inflated?

Check your upper front shock bolts to see if they are loose, don't just grab the shock and shake, put a wrench on it.

Two things. Just reviewed weights for axles. Front axle is 7480# and rear is 14250#. I am running cold 89psi front and 90 psi rear. That is cold "75" degrees in morning. My Tpms shows tire pressure building to 103 to 106 in the heat while driving. I'm trying to make sense if the increase but it has been in the upper 90's every day while driving. Does this sound normal.

I just did a grab test on the shocks but need to wait until evening to put a wrench on the shock bolts. A little cooler then.

I had a similar issue with harsh ride and dash rattles I did the grab check on my front shocks and they felt tight and solid, 3000 miles later the rough ride was getting to me I grabbed an 18" ratchet and socket and gave the bolts a yank and ended up getting a full turn on both sides, from that time on my ride has been smooth and quiet, seems like a whole different coach. I d i d check the lower bolts and the rears and all were tight. I did however find my lower sway bar clamp bolts missing on the rear bar last fall, when I replaced them the improvement was noticeable.

I already had to replace one sway bar axle bracket. The other side was just about ready to fall off. That was at 12000 miles I'll check all shock mounts too

I also had to replace my front tires due to an alignment issue when new, I installed new Toyo m154's up front which also helped smooth out the ride.
You would think all this would be taken care of prior to leaving the factory.

Quality control on these Motorhomes seems to be missing in both the chassis and coach.
