Rolling Earthquake

You've heard the term mentioned many times on the forum, but here is the real thing! I have no basis of comparison but this is on what I would consider a reasonably smooth paved road (I-76 near Hudson CO). I have 8K axles and G614 tires inflated to 110 psi, along with a tri-glide. There are much worse parts of 76, but not in the plan today.

Mor-ryde, Trailair center point, all these sound great, but would be interested in how much they help!

Edited out, but the dishwasher drawer does not lock without power, so it spends most of it's time banging against the cupboard which I didn't know, and about in the middle watch the hard bump followed by a whoop-de-doo! The slides flex in! I won't complain anymore about a few nail heads sticking out, and I'm definitely not going to take the time to stack the forks and spoons anymore

I really thought it would be worse, it's not good, but I expected cabinet doors & drawers to open/close then slam shut. It looks like the island actually rocks back & forth. Nice job!

Shame we're not closer. It would be interesting to put it in ours and see what the difference would be with the IS in the equation. Otherwise, your rig and mine are twins.

I wondered about the dishwasher, so we put an old cheap pillow between the slide and dishwasher before starting out, at least it's not slamming into something hard.

Once I got my first nick in the fridge from the island drawers sliding into it., I got in the habit of putting the couch pillows between the pantry/trash drawer; dishwasher/oven; and fridge/island drawers. No problems since. Low Tech solution.

I also got bagged by the curb side sofa cushion vibrating forward and lodging between the dining slide and wall - ripping off the trim behind the slide. This is indicated by the load cracking sound when extending it. Now I take the outside sofa cushions off and store them between the dining chair and recliner while under way.

I was a bit shocked at how much that island moved as well! Probably not something that happened in our old horseshoe kitchen Montana. The pillows are a must now, I've heard you folks talk about it but I never tried. I do end of with the couch cushions caught in the slide if I'm not careful.

Jim, that would have been a nice comparison - same road and coach!

Brad,
Now you have an excuse to try that shock kit

I think that was a pretty darn smooth ride, all things considered.

My main objective was to make sure the tires were balanced. I keep getting signs of trauma back there..chaffing on the slide seals, sawdust, lose screws, etc., but the balance seems fine.

I agree the overall ride was not bad, but the road was not bad either. Further up I-76 turns into a hitch slapping nightmare from the worn concrete interstate. It would be interesting to re-video next time I head up there towards Nebraska.

Brad last summer coming back from the rally taking the interstate from Ogalalla to Denver, that was the worst interstate highway I've been on yet. We were porpoising for over 100 miles.
