Retamaman,

Of course. The suspension issue has too much space in my mind. We are in Florida for a couple of weeks in our Trilogy. Seems everyday, I find something else, poorly assembled. Yesterday, a puddle of water outside the shower up against the sink base. After inspection, the shower door was not installed correctly, and even so, the seal from top to bottom may not be adequate. And so, I am reminded about the suspension.

My interest remains, though on hold till the end of May.




God Bless,

I have put over 13,000 miles with my Trilogy, which has the MOR/ryde Independent Suspension and Disc Brakes. No problems with either one. Also had it installed on my 2008 Cedar Creek and it never experienced issues either. Brakes are fantastic for stopping.

Thanks For that input, John. I also noticed you insulated your rig with reflection, is that right? Could you share some detail about what and how you accomplished that?

While having our suspension repaired the shop suggested we add some additional bracing to the frame. It is really neat in that it is bolted on so we can get to the underbelly if need. The bracing weighs about 150#s. Once we get the Mor Ryde IS in May, I'll be a whole lot more confident in safety of this rig.Click image for larger version

Hello Retamaman,

So the bracing is to minimize shearing because the frame is twisting? I thought the issue was from road force transmitted to the springs. Am I more lost than I actually realize?

The bracing is to provide additional support for the frame in turning, backing etc. There is an awful lot of force on the frame in sharp turns (think backing into a tight site with a 90_degree entrance).
