Thanks azmont, that is exactly the information I was looking for. This forum has great members!

Yes, we are doing an upgrade on the truck to a 2020 RAM 3500 SRW with the factory auto air suspension. I hear from others that nothing more is needed to keep things level and handle the loads...

All about RVs did a review on them at this link

Personally, I would just add shocks. There are quite a few aftermarket manufacturers of shock products that will help your situation.

Are you driving with your potable tank partially full? Sloshing can be an issue. I saw a video on a model set up that scared the crap out of me

Thanks, appreciate the link!
I suspect you are right about doing shocks; sumo springs can only help in one direction, whereas shocks can help in both.

Good suggestion, but no the issues I have are with empty tanks.
