Rocking Question
 
We have a 08 Monaco Class A with 9500 miles on it.
Question I have is on the last trip, I noticed the coach seemed to "rock" side to side. Not really bad but more than I remember it.
Is there anything I can do to cure the side to side rocking?
Thanks for any info.

Are you talking about rocking when you are driving or when you have it on the leveling jacks ?

Sorry, I should have been more descriptive.
Its when we re on the road with little or no head wind.

Your shocks could be worn. Try finding a road with dips and drive down that if the coach bounces more than 3 times your shocks are probably worn out. Shocks will wear out without leaking.

Starting with the very basics when was the last time you checked your tire pressures?

By all means, check your tire pressure and shocks, but if you still have an issue, you might look at these. Suspension Control

I had them put on to help minimize the extreme rocking that can occur when entering or exiting a driveway. They have helped a good bit.

Sounds like shocks. If not then I recommend Roadmaster Anti-sway Bars. Really helped my rig when trucks go by or pass. Really helped minimize the sway. Good luck.

I checked the pressure before each trip and it was around 75# all the way around.
The rig only had short of 10,000 miles. Would the shocks go out by then?
Ill look into the Roadmaster antisway bar as well.
Thanks for the replies.

Two things, stiffer shock absorbers or anti-roll bars with urethane bushings.

Me thinks 75 psi may be a problem not only with the rocking but the overall lifespan of the tires themselves as well as fuel economy or lack thereof.

75# (PSI) all around??
What size of tires do you have? That pressure is LOW in my opinion. I run 100-110 PSI all around and it rides and handles excellent.
At 75 PSI that may be where you're getting a lot of cushion effect and tire sidewall flexing.

The tires are 245/70RX19.5 F
I may have made a mistake and trusted :whistling:the dealer to set them when I had in in for service before we left.
The only compressor I have is one from HF. May need to get a little bigger for the rig.
I'll check them and adjust as needed.

Read the pressure rating on the sidewall of your tire and start with that.
