X2 on that. I like the windows but the tires and axle upgrade with the Goodyear tires was nice and then when I found out how much more weight I could carry was icing on the cake.

Calls to Forest River and some moaning of my worries and they replaced axles suspension rims and tires including the spare. Cost me 300 for labor but i feel much safer. Happy camper now. Also put tire minder system in.
bigbetty, What year is your 34RLSA? I have a 2013 and was told that the 7000 axles and Goodyear tires couldn't be ordered for my unit.

My 34rlsa is a 2012. I am so much happier with having upgraded suspension and tires/ rims. Ride did get a little stiffer but no problems to speak of. Just repacked my wheel bearings today so I no I will be good for the season.also new battery's in my tire minder system.

Hi there, can you help me understand how the ride has improved or stiffened? I can't tell any difference in ride quality if my trailer is maxed out to 15.5k or running empty? Do the larger axels get a beefier spring packs? I am just trying to get my head around ride quality when everyone is in the TV and how one can measure this outcome.

Suspension Upgrade

I have a 2012 34RLSA with 6000# axles. The springs are flat. Is there any reason not to just change to heaver leaf springs?

dcglovier,
If your springs are flat, you should get the trailer weighed at a truck stop that has cat scales. You may be towing overweight.
