Monroe Retrofit Kit

I haven't incorporated this Monroe shock kit on my TT, but this particular Monroe Shock Retrofit Kit has been hard to come by in recent years and seems to have re-surfaced.

Has anyone installed this shock kit on their Jayco FW or TT suspension?

Bob

Looks interesting... when you git-R-done, make sure to take pictures.

The kit looks very promising. The instructions make reference to checking the frame rail for obstructions like propane lines. I know my TT has a propane line running down the street side which would be very much in the way.

Mike,

Tempting, but I already went over my 2012, 2013, and possibly my 2014 MOD budget with the new rims/tires and EMS

Haha - I tell you... after I saw your new tires and rims, I was tempted but I have managed to convince myself that I'm ok for now. When the time comes and the tires need replacing, then I will upgrade.

I'm loving the mods I did lately though. Besides the EMS, I put in a Vortex fan and Maxx Air II cover, and I finally found someone to reinforce my rear bumper for the bike rack. Today I picked up a micro switch for the Hunter Tstat and I hope to get that done in the next week or so. Then we are off to Maine.

Mike,

Your bumper reinforcement will make for a great thread in the Jayco MODS forum when it is completed (w/pics). As you know JOF gets a lot of inquires on how to add a bike rack to that flimsy square sewer hose enclosure.

Yes, Bob. I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of it while camping last week. Now the trailer is back and storage so I'll have to wait until I take it out again.

The problem is when the time comes you are probably in the middle of nowhere, on the side of the road, on a 105 degree day.

Don't ask me how I know....
