Are these shocks the same size on all classic motorhomes? I have an 84 310. Do you have a part number by chance?

Thank you!

That front spoiler sure is sweet. Might as well do the whole ground effects surround, right?
I have a '79 chassied '81 28 footer. The following year's 280 is very similar, yet very different up in the cockpit...mostly updated stuff. I think the '81 was the last year using the old pattern interiors. Click on my 4 images under my user name to see how it looked when I bought it years ago.
There are still spaces left for the Jackson Rancheria rally on October 7-9. See if you can make it to that!

I bought the shocks at shockwarehouse.com. See the following links...

http://www.shockwarehouse.com/site/p...orhome-Chassis

http://www.shockwarehouse.com/site/p...orhome-Chassis

They accidentally shipped me one wrong shock. Not sure how one messes up in picking one wrong shock. Anyway, they apologized and shipped the correct shock out immediately. Paid $89.95 per shock, no tax and no shipping Camping World wants $120.00 per shock with PC membership.

I'm very happy with Shockwarehouse and I would recommend them.

I do believe these shocks are the same for most P30 chassis over a wide range of years. Check the site for your application.

I know my 82 had the same sink and toilet. Dad replaced toilet long ago and I recently updated sink. Your radio components are different but plastic center console was the same. Mine is an '82 model built on an '81 chassis. I always order chassis/engine parts for an '82. I have found that all seems to be same between '81 and '82 chassis.

Lots of legal jargon, but page 28 on is where the meat is...
Sadly, the "Official" testing seems to indicate that the Brakeguard made the braking worse.
Interestingly, if your M/H has dual circuit brakes there should be 2 Brake guards fitted.

There are two. One mounted off of master cylinder and one half way back on coach on rear brake line. I was going to leave the one up front off when I replaced master cylinder but I could not make brake line fit. Then couldn't put fitting back on and tighten enough to position the Brakeguard. So, trip down the mountain ( hour down and hour up), $9 for the fitting and $25 in gas in the truck. Got it back together. Haven't done that first real road trip yet to see if brakes are really working. Getting close though, now ready to drive MH down the mountain for it's California smog test and registration!

We played Yahtzee in the Motorhome last weekend. It was probably back in the early seventies the last time I played that game. We used to play it at night with our parents in the Airstream trailer up at the lake in Minnesota.

Does your coach have four-wheel disk brakes?

Yes, it does have four wheel disk brakes and I'm very happy it does!
