Just returned from a trip from OK to OH. Installed the shock kit and new 15" wheels and tires a couple of years ago. Tires were inflated to 70 pounds. Roads through Illinois and Indiana were atrocious and literally beat the cr@p out of our trailer. List of broken/malfunctioning parts by the end of the trip:
Freezer door hinges broken
Broken shelf in refrigerator
Broken hinge on lower cabinet door
Aftermarket internal 1500W voltage invertor knocked off platform (yes, it was bolted down)
Battery charger shorted out somewhere and kicked the circuit breaker
A/C outlets now fail to work.............though the oven outlet functions properly. (???)
Kitchen faucet was unusable (thread about this elsewhere on the forum)
Mounting screws un-screwed and allowed two of the window blinds to fall
Knocked off two of my adhesive backed reflectors mounted on the rear bumper
Every time we stopped for fuel, we had to put mattresses back on the beds and put things back in cabinets
P-nut butter jar lid came unscrewed and poured oil all over pantry carpet
Coffee grounds jar lid came unscrewed and poured it's contents all over the pantry
Margarita salt container also emptied it's contents in the pantry
I don't really mind working on all the "fixes", but my main concern is the inflated level of the tires. The first half of the trip they were inflated to 70 psi. Everything listed above was noted upon arrival. Lowered psi to 60 pounds for return trip and had no additional problems. Is there a recommended inflation level to use with these shock.
