I have a 2300 and it came with Firestone air bags, which is what I assume you are talking about. My MH is very heavy on the PS even after I have moved every heavy thing I can to the driver side but it still leans to the right. Iíve inflated the bag on the right to 70 and the DS to 40 so Iíve been looking at the Sumo Spring myself. I removed the worthless, in my opinion, U shaped dinette and replaced it with two recliners to make the space more usable for two people. I would have thought that would be my problem but it leaned before I made that change.
. We are now retired and living the dream! 2014 2300 SunSeeker without slides that we remodeled inside for better living conditions for two people.

I suggest you call SuperSprings. I'm thinking about Sumo's and they were very helpful. They offer a lot more solutions than just the units that replace the bump stops. Tech Support's number is 866-898-0720.

It is better to have too much truck than to have too much trailer.

Helwig makes bolt on helper springs that may work for you. With that said, they are not adjustable like the firestones but they are maintenance free.

Welcome to Lake Wobegon where Justin and David utilize abductive reasoning to help solve F/SS issues.
Happy Trails and Remember the Pequod.
