2013 Sanibel 3500 Shocks

Looking at replacing the shocks on my 2013 Sanibel 3500. Looking for information as to replacement shocks for this unit. Cannot locate any information on the OEM installed shocks. Checked out the Lippert site and they have two listed. Any assistance would be appreciated.

You might try the search function at the top right of the page and see what comes up good luck. Spent many hours banging burners on a 600 psi plant.

Contact Forest River parts and they requested a photo of the shock. I sent them one with the numbers that were on the shock and they set me this reply.

"Your shocks part# is 10F10675A from Dexter Axle. However you cannot order directly from them. If you’re having trouble with dealers you can try Recreation Specialties at 574.264.9621, right around the corner from us, and place an order. They will ship directly to you."

So, I will contact Rec Spec for a delivered price and if it is ridiculous will take it down to NAPA.

Called Recreation Specialties twice and left them a msg. No response. Must be extremely busy fixing travel trailers. Ordered Monroe Gas shock which have worked for others on their 5th wheel RV.

How did you determine the correct Monroe replacement? And, if they work/fit, please provide us with the part #.

Thanks

Researched the internet on various RV sites and found several 5th wheel travel trailer owners replacing their shocks with Monroes. I pulled the original shocks and found one that was frozen, and the others worn out. I measured the extended length (11-7/8") compressed (7-7/8") and the Monroes 555001 Gas Magnum RV Shocks are the same. Will be putting them on when the rain stops. Got a good price from Rockauto and there is a rebate of $30. for 4.
