Good call.

Btw, How are the Sumo's working out?

Mine should be here tomorrow via UPS, so looking forward!

Thanks,

Jay- The Sumos are working great. They are a great addition, helps moderate the snap-back effect of the Hellwig sway bar, and cuts out a lot of the rocking on walkthru when you're stopped as well. The Hellwig and Sumos combined are a big improvement. I'll probably still have to add some Koni shocks to cut out some of the wheel bounce, even though I calculate the tire pressure so as to not overinflate.

Great info, thanks again for taking the time.

Not much consolation when I double-checked the tank size on my 2016 MBS 2401R, but a little. The tank is 12.2 gals, so the 9.8 comes from the fact that you can onlyfill to 80%, but at least it's a net # and not gross!

Here's a few comparisons (gross #'s) that I found interesting compared to my 12.2gal tank:

Winnebago View 13 gals
Coachmen Prism 20gals
Thor Citation 16gal (marketed as 68.2 lbs)

class B Winnebago Era 170A/170X 16gal
class B Era 170C (slideout model) 9.5gal

The Prism has the largest Class C tank I've seen in the bit of comparison I've done, others may have better info.

Installed the Sumo's and they are every bit of awesome.

Thanks again!
