Unfortunately with an MBS chassis we get the Helwig sway suspension helper NOT the Firestone spring air helpers.

The hoses on the air bags was replaced at the frog rally in Goshen. They wouldn't hold air now they do but don't know how much should be in them.


Ok probably a dumb question here, but do all the Foresters come with those air bags? We have a 22' . I am not aware of having those air bags.

Our 2250 Sunseeker had a Firestone airbag label next to the entry door, but it did not have the bags. The label is part of the label package, so it was installed. After checking with the dealer & them researching the issue, they determined the 2250 didn't have airbags.
Take a look under the rear - you can verify pretty quickly if there are airbags or not. It didn't take long for me to remove the label.

check you alignment, I suspect it is out. All 3051s need an alignment.

We haven't felt (pulling to the right or left) that we needed an alignment yet. We keep our airbags at 65 psi and have towed our Focus from Missouri to Washington state to North Carolina to Florida and everywhere in between with nary a problem.

We have a 2015 3050s Sunseeker which is essentially the same as your MH. My MH had tow out from the factory no pulling but did not handle well. Other member have also seen the same, seems Forrest River does not realign the chassis after adding all the weight of the MH. I also heard that they will pay if you ask them to. Check other post for alignment specs.
