2-Nickles - I think you nailed it as far as what other's (I'm one
!) have done towards the incremental improvement of handling. (I'll add a few have changed out rubber bushings and grommets with poly material. But, that can also add to increased road harness transfer too.).
One follow-up question I have about how Active Air is performing for you, is in relation to a problem that really bothers my DW.
When we're going around curves, shifting weight from one side to the other, and the coaches naturally leans a bit toward the outside of the curves - the sensation of slight 'tipping' in the passenger seat, really unnerves her. (She knows, after a few hundred conversations, that the coach suspension just need to finish 'setting' or 'finding it's leg's' in this new direction. But nonetheless, it prompts the largest volume of conversation as far as 'constructive input' towards the drive, then anything else. (Usually the first hour or so, especially if we've not been traveling for awhile. Say in a park for a 3-5 weeks, then heading back out. She may know intellectually that 'It's OK'. But, she can not stop herself from being unsettled and frighten by the sensation of the coach leaning towards the outside edge of a curve (Naturally more so, if it's the passenger side that we're leaning
So, my question. Does the AA react fast enough too reduce this 'shift' of the seat feel as you go thru curves. (Our combo of Road King's, Source Engineering Comfort (Check) Valves, and yes - proper air pressure for our Four Corner weights has reduced this quiet a bit. But still, she feels it...) Does the AA improve on this sensation more then the already upgraded suspension components?
(And note: I do realize that different 'Air Suspension's' have different sizes, number and location of Air Bags. So the handling of my Allure, even at a lighter weight point, may not be the same as say an Magna, or Affinity or a 10 Bagger Roadmaster in a Monaco Executive or Signature, etc. coach.)
(Note2: I suspect the success of a AA install, is incrementally improved with a Air Suspension system with more robust air bags involved... (?)...)
Hope I got across what I'm asking. Or I may have to ask the DW to travel in the Toad, to avoid the leaning. But I suspect via phone call, she'd really then become a 'further back, back seat driver'
