I would play with your air suspension also. Too much air and your suspension is not working the way it’s suppose to work. The air bags are there to assist, not hold the load up.

I might agree if it was an air bag system verses the factory auto air level. Auto air level has two settings and there is not an adjustability. Thank you for your thoughts.

My experience is that air system helps with leveling and harsh bottoming out on hard bumps but shocks deal with reducing oscillations.

The 10 going into Louisianna is the WORST SECTION EVER.. OUR TRAILER'S INTERIOR TRIM CAME OFF THE WALLS.. DISHES BROKE.. HOWEVER, I THINK YOU MAY HAVE A WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION ISSUE.. ARE YOU TOWING WITH WATER IN THE REAR TANK IN THE TRAILER.? ARE YOU NOSE HIGH?

ya, I thought I-10 was the worst but I-49half way up the state is worse. I'm only an inch nose high after getting the IS installed. Yes, I do run with water in the tank.

What do you consider a weight distribution issue? What is ideal % for pin weight?
