2014 Ace ride improvement

I have a 2013 ACE 27 ft with stock Bilstein shocks. I tend to feel every bump and ridge in the road and wondering what would improve the ride. Has anyone with an ACE coach switched to Konis, air bag systems etc I have heard from all the distributors that their product is the best but of course they are trying to see me something, I want to hear from someone that has already made the change. Thks

A hard ride can be attributed to over inflation of tires. Have you had your MH weighed to determine the correct pressures ?

X2 on what Cliff said. If you can have a four corner weigh and adjust the air pressure based on the tire manufactures recommendation.

Where do you normally get a weight at and should it be fully loaded like you would normally have it loaded

I got mine weighed at various truck stops that had scales. Once at a rally I had the chance to get all four corners weighed which is the best way to adjust tire pressure. The truck scales will give you axle weights which will give you a good start.

Weighing and than reducing my tire pressure from 100 to 85-90 psi made all the difference in the world.
