I was brand new to Wanderlodge and he said they had problems with the steerable tag and they recommended that I allow them to align the coach ( all wheels) and then weld the tag axle to improve the safety and reduce the problems. He told me some stories on the problems they had. So I followed their advice and had them welded.
Gold shocks equal FSD shocks by Koni.
Not a good shock for a bird,(i made the mistake of buying them too).
Well,at least the ones i got were not good.

My first thought on the air bags is this.
You need to temporarily install a pressure gauge in the air bag circuits (3 of them as tag already has one) and air the coach up and see what the pressure is at ride height.
Firestone has a prefered operating pressure range. Don't quote me on the numbers but I seem to remember 60-70 PSI???? If you are out of range, then and only then would I consider changing the diameter of the bags to get that pressure back in range. Once you know the current pressure and the current diameter the math is pretty simple to determine the diameter required to achieve the target pressure.

Step one: build a gauge with a tee fitting to temporarily tee into the air bag line.

I have had an air gauge laying here for a few years,just never got it installed.
