So just got back from a short trip to Lancaster Pa. and noticed on my post trip inspection that the camper was leaning to one side. After a visual inspection I found this with the MoRryde 4000 suspension. The rubber gave up on a 1.5 year old system and drove it self out of the bottom to create the lean. (blow up pic for better view)
Checked the other side an it has many cracks in the corners and looks like it is getting ready to fail. Called MoRryde and the little mouse on the phone said we will send you another but small cracks are normal on the other side. I asked her when small cracks get bigger what size are we talking about so I can keep an eye on it, no answer, in other words when it fails that`s how big, on the road, at night, in the rain, 90 miles from any town, just about caused an accident at 65 miles an hour with now misaligned tires and the tread being scuffed off at 1/32 at mile.
They haven`t decided if they are going to replace just one of both as it got kicked up stairs to an engineer for the decision.
If it`s just one then I`ll tell them here is my credit card number to buy another so I don`t have to worry about it for awhile. Next it will be "sorry Sir they are only sold in sets", but then I`ll have a spare for that on the road repair. Wonder if anyone else has had this failure?

Although I had the Mor Ryde LRE 4000 suspension which is of virtualy the same design as yours ... I too experienced failure early on.

There is an online pictorial from Mor Ryde as to what kind of cracks begin to cause concern for the LRE, so I'd guess there is for the SRE as well.

Thank you for the post and information, this is what I was looking for. I will replace the other one to even if I have to pay for it the cracks look scary to me and really don`t want a failure on the road. Like Keystone it depends on who you talk to at these manufactures, the new group of hires haven`t got a clue.

Mine failed after about two years on the road had it changed by truck repair shop. MorRyde overnited new part and reimbursed us for repairs.
