Ron, I just had a thought. (I know mark it down on the calendar. )   Anyway, years back riders were discussing characteristics of using a car tire on a motorcycle. To show what they thought was happening they strapped a Go-pro under the bike and filmed it.  I hav a go pro so Iím thinking on my next loaded trip Iíd do the same and film the rear suspension. It will film for roughly 4 hours if I recall which should be more than enough. I just need to find a secure place to mount it.

Planning a trip in early Oct so Iím hoping to try it then. Who knows, maybe Iíll learn something

Volk, I hope so. Loaded I typically run about 8300 lbs which is 1300 under max. I canít help but wonder if thatís still too much and itís bottoming out. Maybe my leaf springs are weakening and need a leaf added? Iím hoping maybe this will give me some insight.

Does anyone know what maintenance is required to keep these (LS) operating a peak performance?

Bob is what we call our PC 2100, and he has taken us from campers to RV'ers and loving it.

I contacted Liquid Springs to get info on weight added by LS. BTW LS is developing LS for front axle as well.

My Question:

Ford E-450 LS gawr is 9600lb. So the axle rating does not change with LS.

My question is how much additional weight, if any, is added to rear axle when LS is installed versus just having stock E-450 rear axle?

I am trying to determine if rear axle can handle LS with a slide out and still be within gawr rr.

Answer:

If you add LiquidSpring to the rear of your coach it will add 90lbs to the front and 190lbs to the rear.
 
Please let me know if you have further questions.
