I do not want to make this long, I slide the rear as I leave or go in to the drive way. Question what to do. Add wheels or does the air bags lift the rear up so that it will not drag. the air bag is for the ride as explained on the side of the unit. Has any other sunseekers had this problem?

someone posted adding wheels to your hitch if you look down the posts. How steep is your driveway in order for it to rub like that wow.

I pump my bags to 90psi. There are a lot of driveways out on the road that you will drag on. N & S Carolina have a lot of side streets and store/gas station driveways where you will drag. At 90psi mine still drags but not as bad.

Dragging bottom is not a Sunseeker specific problem. It has to deal with how much overhang your rig has, how much ground clearance you have, and ultimately how steep is the angle of the driveway or road you’re trying to traverse.

Is there anyway for you to change the angle of your drive to the road? Picture the letter “V” and you’re pouring water into the trench to lessen the depth.

skid plates

Schredder, in the picture the triangle brackets that hang down to protect the connector drag. the putting wheels on the hitch will not work as it is above the skid triangles.

rollers

I am looking at a steel roller like this, but i will need a 4 inches long, cut in half getting a long bolt threaded both ends then the assembled in the botom of the triangle and welding a angle iron over the bolt to hold in place. That is what I am working towards.

FWIW, with the MH ready for travel the rear raises 1.9” when I air up from 10 psi to 90 psi

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
