Video Transcript for Review of Roadmaster Replacement Comfort Ride Shock - RM-204000-00

Michael: Hi, there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the replacement shock absorber. This is going to replace the shock absorber for your Roadmaster comfort ride trailer suspension. Obviously, it's going to do the same thing as the original, so it is a nice heavy duty gassed shock that's going to absorb the road vibrations and provide more comfortable towing experience. It is nitrogen charged, so it is going to eliminate the trailer bouncing and chucking, porpoising that you sometimes get with your trailers.

If you have the Roadmaster comfort ride system, this is going to be an exact replacement from Roadmaster, so you can trust it's going to integrate into your system completely. You're not going to have to worry about compatibility issues or anything like that. It is going to be an exact replacement, get you up and running again so that your ride with your trailer is far more comfortable. That's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com.

Thanks for watching.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


Excellent product! Absolutely TRANSFORMED my towing experience! Installed on a 2017 Open Range 310BHS travel trailer. Approximately #10,500 loaded. Trailer doesnt bounce or jolt over the road. Ride is substantially bettter. System is tough, thick, and seems it will last. Instructions are pretty clear, and all tooling neede is pretty basic. I reccommend a digital inclinometer to be able to set your shock angles precisely. They're cheap on [online]. I reccommend this kit to every single person who has the same bouncing issue. Could not be happier with the purchase!

Along with the new springs....everything works as advertised. Well satisfied. No complaints.
I had to modify the one set of shock brackets to fit, as I have raised the trailer 5 inches
to match up with the 4 inch raised truck.
Otherwise...no swaying....no bouncing........no problems.
Thanks etrailer for your help.

Great. On a 32 ft. WildCat fifth wheel..No problems. In the driveway, I installed the Shock system, heavier springs. I had to modify the shock-to-frame brackets, as the trailer has been raised 5 inches. Along with the MorRyde Stabilizers the trailer tows like a dream. Be sure to have the wet bolt grease nipples pointing out to the side of the unit for easier access. Next project will be to replace the scary Magnetic Brakes with a hydraulic system. Thanks etrailer. Kudos to your wonderful support crew. It was just like calling my buddy next door.

I would recommend this over other type upgrades. It may cost more but like the saying goes you get what you pay for. Install was not difficult.Installed on a 2015 Fuzion 325 toyhauler,towability plus road jarring much improved having ridden in trailer before and after,you can sit in the rear in your seat and not get thrown out.The other notable upgrade was the reese goose box fith wheel hitch,a real good upgrade.

So far so good on my 2015 Open Range 3X427BHS!

Overall, the old suspension system was just rusted and worn out and the tires were a maximum of 1" apart, which made me really nervous while pulling. It was tough to remove, but nothing a little WD-40 and some praying couldn't fix!

Installation was pretty straight forward using the included directions and [online video] University. Looking forward to seeing how it rides this weekend on our next trip.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


OMG! After having the trailer bottom out on the stock springs while traversing a RR crossing, this system has proven to be amazing. Returning from a VA campground I crossed multiple RR crossings and traveled some rough pavement. I found I had left a bottle of shower soap on the ledge in the shower! It was still there when I set up in my yard. Not possible with the stock suspension!


Comments
This was the best thing I could have done to make the 5th wheel experience a good one. Prior to installing failing to properly secure things in the trailer would not end well. After the install, items remained where they were last placed.

Installation Review (will update after road test) Great tutorial video. Highly recommend a quality bolt/nut loosening solution. Makes a big difference. Rented an angle drill for the top bracket 5/16th" holes due to low clearance (I ended up buying one it was so useful). Job went smoothly. I wouldn't cut your underbelly until after the install. I may not cut mine at all. Top of shock pushes against it but that shouldn't cause a problem. I added a number of photos, to include the solvent and jack. Top notch company with high quality merchandise.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


I've installed this on a 5th wheel about 1 year ago and I have to say I've been very pleased with this purchase. While stuff in the trailer still gets out of place, it feels like it has improved the handling of the trailer over rough roads and during windy conditions. I've probably put about 5,000 miles on my trailer after installing this kit and have to say I have no regrets with this purchase.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


Just finished installing the Roadmaster shock system on my Momentum 398M tri-axle. The kit arrived well packaged and all items were included. The instructions that come with it are pretty straight forward and easy to understand. This would probably be a lot quicker install with some helping hands, but I did it by myself in about 6 hours. The hardest part of the entire setup is all of the overhead drilling, but with a little redneck ingenuity I was able to make that bearable. As far as this kit goes, the ordering process and the outstanding customer service from Angela W, etrailer.com rocks!! This could be the start of a wonderful relationship..

Still feel it is the best upgrade you can do short of going independent. Still a great product for the price.

Love my RAS suspension. It did exactly what I was hoping for. Now I pull my trailer with NO rear end squat. It was really bad before I got the RAS heavy duty installed now no far fear with new setup.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


After 1 year we are still very pleased. Have about 5000 miles towing and it is a much better ride. Worth the money. Ride is much better. We did have it professionally installed. It's a pretty big project for a driveway mechanic

Continues to perform very well.

Great improvement over stock. Trailer tracks more stable.
Less movement of stored away items. Less chucking, pretty much eliminated it.


Comments
Worth the time and expense, the trailer tracks much better, less movement of items inside the trailer.

Still working fine. I would definitely do this modification. Should have been done by the factory.

One of the best things I’ve installed on my travel trailer. They smoothed out the ride and removed the sway from my trailer. Every travel trailer made should have these installed on them at the factory.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


We bought a new Grand Design 22 foot Travel Trailer and Ford Expedition Tow Vehicle. Even after we installed a Curt Trunnion Bar Equalizer Hitch, the trailer bucking was unbearable for long trips. It was so bad we were ready to sell the whole rig. The suspension of all travel trailers is sub-standard.
We bought the Roadmaster RM-2450 Shock absorber kit and installed it ourselves. It made a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE in the ride! However, the installation was not easy for a 76 year old man. Thanks to a neighbor with a flat paved driveway and an extensive tool inventory, I got it done. You need pre-planning and high jack stands. Read the instructions and view some online videos before committing. Verify that there are no gas or water pipes next to the trailer frames.
Determining the location of the upper shock frame bracket is tricky. This measurement sets the angle of the shock absorber, and has to be done BEFORE you lift the trailer and remove the wheels! You have to have the trailer loaded, the wheels on the ground and the tow vehicle connected. Then install one shock absorber from the bottom up and measure where the upper bracket sets on the frame. Then you can disconnect and lift the trailer up on jack stands and drill the frame holes. I was lucky that I was close to the IDEAL 35 degree angle on my trailer. I don't know what you would do if you are outside the 25 to 40 degree allowable range.
The instructions say you have to get 12" long drill bits to drill into the bottom of the frame. There's not enough clearance to insert a standard drill between the springs and frame. Pushing the drill up overhead, and having the bit tight to the springs makes it almost impossible to get the holes straight. So when you drive the self tapping bolts into the holes it is very easy to strip them. A better solution is to have a low profile angle drill. Otherwise you'll be welding the brackets or glueing bolts.
We also installed heavy duty shackles, wet bolts and bronze bushings while the trailer was up on the jack stands. You have to refer to other reviews for that. The Trailer Mfg. stock components are junk.

Great. We’ve towed all over the country about 13,000 miles, and we’re still pleased with the ride.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


Thank you for asking for a 1 year review as I never do them without enough test time.
I have made several trips into western VA and West VA so have used the mountains and found it made a big difference in stability and bounce as advertised. No fault of the product but had I known I would have changed axles to next load level higher and kit to match. Instructions were pretty good, it does require some drilling through 3/16 steel 9/16" holes so having proper tools for job is essential. I got some trailer jack stands from [nationwide retailer] they provided safety at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend them.

Absolutely great I couldn’t be more pleased

Excellent finish and overall durability BUT, the angles need a little tweaking. The top of the shock will contact the upper bracket as installed to the instructions.

I did a custom installation on tandem axle 10K car trailer. Made a world of difference especially in windy situations. Highly recommend for any trailer application!

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


Every towable RV should be equipped with these shocks at the factory especially those like us that have a rear kitchen! The ride difference before and after is 'shockingly' (pun intended...) better. No more broken dishes and I know all of the installed components in our 2021 Keystone Cougar 29RKS suffer less wear and tear, and damage from road travel. It also made our tow vehicle ride much better than before the shock install due to 'bucking' on the fifth wheel hitch when towing the -29RKS.

These shocks have been the best upgrade/add-on we have ever added to our current RV and four others in the past. Do yourself (and your RV...) a favor and INSTALL THESE SHOCKS! You won't be disappointed.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Accessories and Parts


Highly recommend adding these on your camper. We added them to our Grand Design 2400 BH which was a night and day difference in ride quality. This eliminated a lot of the porpoising, chucking and side to side roll that you sometimes get. I was amazed how much smoother of a ride pulling the camper is now. Running these shocks now in combination with the Road Armor Equalizers.

Still working great!

  • Bolts for Installation and Shock Length for Roadmaster Replacement Shock Absorber

    It sounds like you might have a Roadmaster Comfort Ride system like the # RM-2460 that is designed for 5200-lbs to 7000-lbs axles. To replace the shocks on this system you'll need to use the Replacement Shock Absorber for Roadmaster Comfort Ride Trailer Suspension System - Qty 1 # RM-204000-00. This system was designed to work on axles that are 3" in diameter, which is the typical diameter of a 5200 or 7000-lbs axle.
