    I have a 1986 bounder 34ft RV and it tends to have a pretty loose ride and bounces up and down quite a bit on the roads when going over a pothole, etc... Would having the shocks/suspension checked out help to reduce this or is this a common thing with them. New to RVing have only had since november.

    Thank you

    If you have never drove a M/H it takes a little getting used to but, on a 86 I would bet it needs shocks. Remember it is pretty easy to overload a M/H and be sure to load it equal. tire pressure is also very important.

    Hi Ims0509, agree with Chelse, also check the front air bags in the coil springs (at is if its on a Chev P-30) for that size MH you'll need at least 70 PSI and maybe 90 PSI of air pressure in the air bags. Having the air bags properly inflated makes a world of difference in handling on the Chev P-30 chassis. Happy trails GB
