Thanks Plano, really looking forward to that trip tomorrow. Air bags are installed and I ready to go. Based on the weather forecast we just may get really familiarized with the inside of the RV. The deluge you guys got last night is headed our way.

Enjoy your new rig. We had similar "squat" with our 295RST and I installed Timbrens..That took care of it

Houston, let us know how the shakedown went, I installed JT Strong Arms today before we head to Destin next week. Stopped the rocking and rolling my 100 lb wife makes happen just by walking from front to back. Was really bad when my 200 lbs moved around. These arms made a very positive improvement. Took 5 hours though...Click image for larger version

Looks good, that may be might next mod, who knows. The Crusader may not feel so bad compared to the Lacrosse, it was 36' and if my wife or I even rolled over in bed it shook the trailer.

Planpostu did you run into any issues installing the JT's? I notice your battery box is removed.

Are you doing anything with the rears?

Really only issue was their instructions are a little dated. They assume everyone still has jacks at the rear bumper in their install photos and drawings. Mine are telescoping behind the rear wheels but same basic principal. Otherwise, it was straightforward job that has you up and down a lot! Click image for larger version

ID:	58474It was a job of 10,000 steps for me as I had it parked in my shop from the opposite end where my tools are kept.

What did you bolt the rear arms to? Install a crossmember?

Yes, there is a C channel that runs between our rear landing gear. Drill 5/16" holes for brackets and use a drill/driver to insert the self tapping bolts. Since you only install arms in the rear, they went pretty quickly.
