My 3050S is having trouble with the drawer latches as well . The warranty just fixed mine, I love the idea of ordering a few extra ones, wish I would have thought of that when I was at the dealer this week.

Sounds good. I made sure to include that it was his TT in case motorbikes were different. Sounds like you have a good handle on things.

For the rear height, dragging try putting more air in air bags if you have them.
We have 2500TS, same problem with drawers, need to get them replaced too, only couple months old.

What pressure for the air bags?

I normally run about 60 lbs in mine. In mine, which I suspect are same in most Sunseekers, you can go to 100 lbs, according to manual. Putting more air in bags, up to 100 lbs will raise rear and help with dragging. good luck...

We run 60 as well, on average anyway. Too much more and it seems to sacrifice the ride quality. If you have some fairly level ground to play on, deflate both bags to 5 psi, measure the back bumper (we measured both sides), bring the bags up to 60 or so, measure again, and higher pressure if you choose. At least you can see what additional clearance you're getting and find a happy medium, ride height vs ride quality. At some point though, you just realize the thing sits low to the ground. In extreme cases, I've seen some with a 3" suspension lift on the e-450, but if you have big foot levelers with the already short stroke, you'd have to make up the difference with pads. And then of course there's the distance from entry steps to ground. Just throwing options out there.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

When adding air to air bags be careful. A very little air adds a lot of psi. Use short bursts and check often until you get feel for it. We run 60 psi also.

First time, not thinking, I got lucky I didn't pop the bags. Used the bigger shop compressor regulated to 150. whoops. One shot of air snd i swear the MH jumped. Now I just use the smaller compressor which stays regulated around 80 psi just to be on the safe side. Usually have better success bringing them up to 80, then bumping the bleeder valve on the gauge till its where we want it.

I have had 2 latches stick on my Sunseeker. I have a scheduled appt for them to come fix those, and a few other things. As far as scraping the rear end, I have found that you have to be really careful of where your pull in for fuel. After awhile, and a few scrapes, you will know where you can and can't go.
