Thanks, I can figure that out. I just find it odd that the only one on their website for the F53 is not the same ones Ford puts on them. Unless I missed something.

We cross into Ontario at Sarnia at least once a year and run I69 or more often I94. We're sitting in Milton Ontario right now. Both 69 and 94 in Michigan are real pigs. Our 40 footer rides at the mercy of the road quality it seems. On this trip I found 2 broken eggs in the carton in the fridge. I've weighed several times and got the tire pressures about where they need to be. I could drop 5 psi on the front and was thinking about trying it for the trip home.

Koni shocks and Sumo Spring front and back will fix your ride.

Tom I called the company direct in Mooresville NC and ask which shock replaced the oem,and they gave me these numbers.They also said the oem shocks are valved much stiffer to carry heavy loads.I bought mine from Shock Warehouse,they had the best price.Good luck.

My MH is a 2018 Winnebago Sunstar LX30T.
I have the F53 also.

I just installed the Roadmaster front and rear sway bars and steering stabilizer.

This made a big improvement in the ride of the MH. Very happy with the results so far.

My next mod are the Sumo springs.
Will do this in Sept.

Lastly will do the Koni Shocks if necessary.

After that, I am done!!!!

Same Problem with My Coach

I still have similar problem on my Workhorse W-22 chassis.
I have done several things without much success:
1. Sumo Springs
2. Koni FSD shocks
3. Front & rear track bars (helps leaf spring flexure)
4. Coach weighed on 4 corners and tire pressure adjusted

I may eventually change out the front tires (Michelin XZE) which are truck tires with high load carrying capacity and stiffer sidewalls. I may switch to XRV tires which have lower carrying capacity, but a softer ride. I confirmed that they are a softer ride at the Michelin booth at the last FMCA Rally I attended.

Sumo spring is your best bet all four corners

Everybody is trying to sell you shocks!

Air pressure is the first step - do that and then see if you want to shell out $400 (or whatever) to have your shocks changed.

I have the 16K chassis short wheelbase 2015 build. I'v taken to calling my RV the Bonecrusher, so going through the same stuff right now. When I picked it up from the dealer it had over 100lbs in the tires. Going to placard spec of 86lbs helped. Sway was not a big issue but CHF improved that. By the time I got home from the dealer 600 miles away, it sounded like a couple of paint cans rolling around under the bed - the rear sway bar bolts & bushings were so loose I could tighten them by hand. I had them tightened them to spec and that helped plus no more paint cans rolling around. Front was way out of alignment and had that done and tires balanced. As has been mentioned, all these low cost things help incrementally, but still extreme rough on bad roads and good roads with expansion joints, bridges etc. I think I'v read every opinion on this forum and others as well as talked to a couple of good truck chassis guys. I'm thinking the Sumos are the next increment and hopefully that will get me to a more comfortable ride. I'd love to change this little RV's name!
