Question Wildcat, you got a 50A surgeguard? Don't you have 30A? I just picked up a progressive industries 30A power protector for our 2900. Maybe I missed something?

4Gcampers,

I got the 50A unit from a friend that did not use it. I asked around and they said a 50 would work in a 30A service.

If anyone has any negative experience about compatability please let me know before I install it.

you can use 50 amp in 30 amp service. but you will still get just 30 amps.

what a 50 amp unit does is lets you use 50 amps(seems obvious)

I cannot locate the driver side air line valve even though the instructions show 2. I did a quick look to where I would have thought they mounted it..storage compartments, fender wells etc but no go. I was thinking maybe it got covered up when they sprayed the underbody insulation. Anyone have any idea where it could be.

Thanks
I suppose I should have put 2 and 2 together. You have a Chevy. The Ride Rite bracket doesn't fit so we had to go with air lift. Ride Rite is working on a new bracket. Once they do we'll go back to Ride Rite.

Can someone clue in me - I'm DipWad #61,000,315.

We have a 2860ds (btw, what does the ds mean?) - I've never driven (or riden) on any RV except our own. Can someone put in 6th grade terminology why you all are getting the air ride?

I just don't really notice a problem with our handling or ride or anything, so is this kinda like customizing them? Is it a big huge difference, or is it a subtle change that those of us less mechanically inclined might not even notice?

Or is this just for people that tow? I don't get it.
Thanks for anyone that can help.

It's just another way to level the ride out. Before we would use extra leaf springs or metals shims. This does the same thing...but is more user customizable.

ok, but the factory stuff is good too, right? I can have a fine and wonderful RV ride and life factory installed? I can just have a smoother ride with air ride?

So this is something more for people spending quite a bit of time on the road - or the more discerning customer. At 6 hours a month and 2 big trips per year, it might be a worthier investment for us later down the road as we travel more. Does that sound right?
