Problems with gauges

We have a 2008 Fours Winds Mandalay. Had been camping for a week. When leaving noticed the gauges were not working, and it rode like a school bus. Got home and have been unable to figure it out. Turned off the battery for 15 minutes....nothing, checked the fuses in the back of the RV....nothing. It is a Freightliner Chassis and very frustrated because prior to going on your latest trip it working fine.

Any ideas

I think fuses for the chassis are up front. Probably under dash in the center. Or at least they are on our motor home.

Gauges not working should not make the coach " ride like a school bus. "

Do you have any information on your Freightliner chassis build date .

Your 2008 coach could be on a 2007 chassis and Freightliner changed gauge packages during those years.

Build date decal should look like the photo below.

If it rode like a school bus, there is a good chance that the air bags didn't inflate along with your other issues. If you drove it with the bags deflated, there is a good chance that you now have suspension damage as well.
