5th wheel suspension mods
We have a 2014 43' Sierra 5th wheel. We have been full-timers since April 2014, and have traveled from the Maritime Provinces in Canada to San Diego, plus numerous places in between (Texas is our domicile state).
About 3 months ago, I decided to replace the factory OEM suspension with a MoRyd SRE4000 system. I bought the system from a large RV supplier who was familiar with MoRyd, and personally knew the MoRyd folks. I had the system installed by a reputable RV dealer close to where we dropped anchor for a couple of weeks. I made an appointment, and the dealer subsequently installed the system in about 2 1/2 hours while I waited. The install cost was $275.
When the techs pulled the old spring hangers and equalizers off, we discovered that the bushings were just made of nylon, which of course were completely shredded. I was amazed that FR would do this on a rig with a GVWR of nearly 16,000#!
The MoRyd system includes bronze bushings, plus I also had wet bolts installed. Examining the thickness/strength of the OEM hangers compared to the MoRyd hangers showed a huge difference. The MoRyd system was infinitely stronger and better built. In my opinion, replacing the stock suspension components was worth every penny, not only for the huskier hangers, greater equalizer range of motion, but also for my own piece of mind.
I have no involvement with MoRyd other than as a customer, but I am pleased.
