Thanks Planocat, I appreciate your reply. Well I sometimes ask that already (what have I done?!) as there is a fair amount of maintenance and I already own a 100+ year old house which has it's share of maintenance. This is our 1st Class A and while I do love it and completely enjoy the benefits of having such a big rig and all the space as well as all the niceties while camping, it sometimes overwhelms me and I feel like I want to get rid of it before anything BIG breaks! (Shss..don't tell my wife!) HA! Anyway, thanks for you reply.
I had a RexAir model 3550 built on a Ford 460 v-8 chassis with a tag axle. Had it from 1997 to 2012 when I sold it with just over 60,000 miles on it. Had the Banks power pack added as we pulled our 4500 lb boat the 3,000+ miles round trip from Texas to Canada every year. That trip is why I eventually went to the diesel pusher.
Obviously with the longevity of ownership, we encountered our share of breakdowns and repairs...... Part of life in an overworked RV. We never replaced the shocks as I never felt that was an issue. Perhaps due to the tag axle? I'm a preventative maintenance junky and have records of every re pair and service done to the coach during our ownership. I'd send them to you but it would probably leave you asking "what have I done?" LOL
Use it and enjoy it before making any shock replacement decisions. Can't think of a coach that wouldn't rock going over curbs.
Planocat, so you had a 97 Rexhall Air? Any tips or advice about taking care of this rig?
One thing I've noticed when going over curbs (I park it in the back of the house but have to go up and over a street curb) it REALLY rocks back and forth. I'm think perhaps some new shocks might be in order.
Anything you can tell me is greatly appreciated.
