Do I Need to Replace These Magnum Shocks?

On our 1982 motorhome are Gas Magnum Shocks # 34817. I do not know how long they have been on there. Our ride is bumpy and jarring, but I just assumed that was to be expected. A fellow traveler thought otherwise, and since I am fixing other thing on the motorhome, perhaps I should get new shocks as well.

How do I tell if I need to replace them?

If they do need to be replaced, should I get the same ones that are on there, or is a different brand preferred?

What length motorhome?

The front air bags should be at 55psi, no more and no less.

If your not sure about shocks, replace them.

The motorhome is 28 feet and the max weight is 14,500 lbs and we ride that line pretty close.

Thanks for the phone number on the other post and your response to this one.
