MorRyde questions

We have made an appointment to have the MorRyde IS put on our 38rl, April 12, and 13. I have also decided to have the disc brakes installed also. My question is, not being a full timer and will probably never be a full timer would you opt for the 8k suspension or stay with the 7k? I am leaning towards the 8k because we will be traveling to Florida next winter to stay for three months, so we will probably be taking a lot of stuff with us. Also I have noticed a lot of you have been installing 17.5 tires. When you install the 17.5 tires do you have to put a different size wheel on? I was told by a tech at Tiara that you don't change wheels to put those tires on. Also is there a tire shop in the Elkhart area that installs these tires?

From someone who has all the mods you ask about, yes, do them. You won't appreciate the difference in the whole rig until you drive it afterwards.

Do the 8k, more weight capacity never hurt anything. Do the Discs, make SURE to change the setting in your trucks brake controller to Electric / Hydraulic. The brakes will work if the setting isn't changed but there will be a delay and the gain settings won't be right. Yes, you need tires and wheels if going to H rated. The H rated are 17.5 wheels. There are a few tire and wheel shops in the Elkhart area. I'm sure with a bit of research you could arrange to have the tires at MorRyde waiting for you.

Enjoy the change ! We will be there the week before you on Friday 4/5 for a suspension check and bearing repack. Probably will put new pads on as we have towed over 30k miles since the IS and Discs and are headed to Montana

Thanks for the quick response. We are traveling to Yellowstone this Aug. and I wanted to get these changes made before then. I am excited to see how much of a difference there is in the way my rig handles.

Stop in and say hi when you're out there ! Tracy and I will be staying in West Yellowstone, Montana and working at a place called Madison Crossing in town. West Yellowstone is the western entrance to Yellowstone park. We will be there from about the first week of May till sometime in October.

The price difference is minimal... do the 8K while you are there...

I part time travel, weekend warrior. I have a 16 38RL that has more empty cabinets than full cabinets, and I went with the 8K just because it was minimal...

You will not regret it

Yes you can have Mor/ryde get the tires and wheels for you and install them as part of the overall package.
Our Travel Friends had the Disc Brakes added two years ago before the RW Rally and had the IS and 17.5 Tires & Wheel before coming to Florida in October '17.
We had all done to our '16 MB prior to taking delivery.

That sounds like us. We really didn't get to use ours a lot last year because of slide problems but i'm sure my wife will start loading it up when the weather breaks.

Greg - we will be at a small park in town called Branding Iron. Only about 10 sites and mostly workampers. We get the site as part of the job.
