Ok so we had a real big adventure with some air bags...

My neighbor across the street brought over a set of Air Lift suspension bags and brackets of a Chevy S-10. Knowing I was looking for air bags, he gave me these hoping I could use them. A few phone calls to Air Lift and I found out the air bags were the same as the ones for my Titan, only the upper brackets were different. The bottom brackets were also the same! I bought the brackets and was in for $28 for a set of air bags for the truck.

I got them installed on a Thursday, taking the first long trip with the truck camper to Phoenix on Friday.
Friday comes and we drive to Phoenix without issue. Once there, we had a 2 mile dirt road to contend with. No problem... Once we were there, in our spot, level and ready to put the legs down, I could hear a hissing..... yup, one of the bags slid 'in' and contacted the frame rail, causing a small fracture and leak in the upper cap. The dirt road caused enough articulation that the bag slid in with force. So.... here we are 600 miles from home with dead air bags. That meant the drive home was without air, bottoming the other bag that was not cracked (both deflated) causing death to both bags. I thought for sure I was in for some new bags that were not free... so much for the $28 set of air bags...

Sure enough, Air Lift warrantied them and I have a new pair on the camper now. I'm going to Ocotillo this weekend and it is the first off-road trip with the truck/camper pulling the trailer. Like a craftsman tool, all they wanted were the old bags back in exchange for a new pair. SUPER NICE.

Kudos to Air Lift.

Kudos to Air Lift rv suspension air bags for warrantying them! We NEED more companies like that. I added new air ride suspension to my good old Yukon suv rv puller and they work GREAT! No more "rear squat" on my rv when I put the 600 pound trailer tongue weight on the back of the good ol Yukon. Air Shocks rule! Pat
