Video Transcript for Review of Roadmaster Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Comfort Ride Add-On Triple Axle - RM-2460-50

Hi, everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com. Let's take a look at this Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-on Kit for triple-axle trailers. This add-on shock kit is going to adapt your Roadmaster Comfort Ride system for use with a triple-axle trailer with leaf spring suspensions. And this is going to fit your three inch diameter, 5,200 pound to 7,000 pound axles. And on your screen, I am including the model number of that Comfort Ride system that this kit is going to work with. And as you can see, these shocks are banded at the install height, so this is how you are going to receive them.

And this is a bolt-on installation, which includes everything that you're going to need to install this. It includes the tie plates with extension pieces that will replace your existing U-bolt plates. The upper brackets mount on your trailer frame with the included hardware, and the shocks attach to the tie plate extensions and to the upper brackets to help dampen movement of your axle. The extended length of these shocks when they're fully extended is gonna be 17 1/2 inches from eye to eye. And then when they're fully compressed, it's going to be 11 1/2 inches.

Instructions are included to guide you through the installation process. And this does have a limited lifetime warranty from Roadmaster. (metal clanking) Well, that's gonna wrap up our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy.

Thank you for joining me.

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.



by:

What I like better than the products are the people and support received
from EVERYONE I have talked to at etrailer. If Forest River was half this good, I might buy another one, but most of the questions or problems I have come across with our fifth wheel have been solved by someone here after talking to a generic moron at the manufacturer.
eTrailer ROCKS!!!



by:

This has got to be one of the best purchases that I have ever made. Angela was awesome to deal with when ordering, the package was delivered in great shape all items accounted for, clear precise instructions and the final result that I was expecting. All in all a great place to do business

Install wasn’t bad. Grand design welds a V bracket inside the spring hangers for more strength so that was my only challenge on install. This caused a problem on the center hanger as the spacer wouldn’t fit. Had to grind about a quarter inch off the spacer so it would fit as I could only bend the bottom of the hangers so much. Will be towing about 100 miles this weekend so it will be nice to hopefully not have broken drawers in the back of the trailer as well as shelves in the fridge door dislodged. I also did the X factor cross braces on the front and rear hangers for more strength. Will post back after we get more miles on it, but given all the other positive reviews I don’t think I’ll be unhappy.

1. The impression from "people"
was usually "why shocks on a camper", which I would answer "why shocks on your car".
2. The ride was much better; as you may imagine driving your car without shocks. And the sway was minimized & the braking effectiveness increase.
3. We've sold that RV and on our new one already planning the install; and including the wet bolts and mod on the leaf-spring hangers.



by:

Installed a year ago, I made a drilling template to help locate the frame mounting bracket screw holes. Installed a set on (2) fivers, spent average of 2.5 hours for total installation per fiver. Helped the ride of the trailer. Would certainly recommend the shock kit.



by:

We installed these on our 2022 Riverstone Legacy 39RKFB and without a doubt they have saved us on broken rims (many have this issue) and the ride was an instant upgrade. We drove a 6500-mile trip over the summer to ZION and Rockies and no issues at all. I installed them myself and recommend them as an inexpensive solution to expensive independent suspension.



by:

This is a great kit! Everything needed is included. Be sure to purchase the heavy duty wet bolt kit for the shackles.



by:

The suspension system is amazing! It feels like the 5th wheel is riding on coil springs. The shock absorbers make such a noticeable difference; why these aren't installed at the factory will forever puzzle me.
Installation was straight forward. The length and quality of current U-bolts allowed for reuse.
I was skeptical about the fasteners, until the first one was torqued to specs...it was soon apparent that the provided hardware was more than adequate for the job.
I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this system again, and I promote it as often as possible.
Thank you, and all the etrailer staff!



by:

Best upgrade you can do on your toy hauler! It’s a little stiff at first unloaded but man what a difference when fully loaded! Smithed out the ride tremendously even on the washboard highway! A huge piece of mind when comparing it to the stock set up. Definitely recommend it!



by:

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!



by:

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.



by:

I spent considerable time researching how to improve the towing experience of my 5th wheel camper without breaking the bank. This is an excellent product and it performed exactly as I had hoped. It improved my trailer's handling over the very rough roads we travel in just about every state in our country. If you are looking to improve your towing experience, then this is a reasonably priced product.



by:

I was looking for shock absorbers when I discovered this kit. I installed it in about a day and a half. The instructions are pretty good if you read them and follow them. We took the trailer about 100 miles last weekend. It seemed to ride smoother with this kit. Overall, I'm happy with it.



by:

Great kit, really beefy high quality components, nice powder coating. Because my axles are above the leaf springs which I believe is relatively rare, the kit needed some modification, not too bad if you're handy and have additional tools. This kit is a no brainer for axles underneath leaf springs, pretty much bolt on from seeing the eTrailer videos, dramatically improved ride quality on my 20 mile test drive, looking forward to our next trip.



by:

My brother in law installed the slipper spring kit to replace a broken spring and equiflex on the left side of my 2018 solitude 384GK. We found it very easy to install and the written instructions and a couple of videos helped. We travelled from Phillipi WV to Arley Ala. after. I saw a very big difference in the handling and stability of the RV. Was very pleased with the results. I have not installed the shocks yet will do that when I get to Fla.
I purchased the kit from E trailer the service was excellent received everything 2 days earlier than expected, no damage or missing parts. I dealt with Ashley at E trailer she was extremally helpful and knowledgeable.



by:

It works well, it was easy to install but the screws that go to the frame loosen with the vibration of the road even using Loctide 271 red, I had to stop on the road to tighten them every 2 hours. As soon as I returned home, I welded them and the problem was solved. The next problem was that the assembly was very close to the ground. I had to raise it about 2 inches more for safety. In conclusion, I give it 4 stars because the comfort is excellent and the price is a little high. taking into account all the extra work it took me until I got a proper balance.



by:

Great addition to my camper. After being frustrated with broken leaf springs, stuff broken in the camper and being jarred from pot holes, I installed these shocks to help the ride. Easy to install (just takes time) and a great addition.



by:

The product itself is very well made and shipped. Install is pretty straight forward, measure twice, drill once type of thing.

My issue with this product is actually etrailer. I purchased this and 5 days later the price was $xx less. I contacted customer service figuring they could credit the order given 5 days passed but was told that their pricing changes daily in some cases and would not credit the difference. I kept an eye on the price over the next week and sure enough, noticed multiple price fluctuations from $xxx to $xxx. I'm not sure how this policy wins customer loyalty, but that's how etrailer operates apparently. If you buy this from etrailer keep a close eye on the price, you could save nearly 20% if you buy it on the right day.



by:

One of the packages has arrived split, found a large washer on the driveway next to the split. More to come, if allowed to update on unpacking. Hopefully nothing is missing, but it does not look good at this point :)



by:

great product, I'm a fabrication/designer, well thought out and much better than the original factory suspension. I also added structural kickers to the suspension hangers to help side load generated while turning and not relying on the hangers for strength. I also replaced the original factory u bolts, might as well have all new going back on



by:

I had installed this same kit several years ago on my fifth wheel camper. Recently I had to travel on a very wash boarded road near St George, Colorado. I had 2 of these shock units fail so I order the new one since they worked so well for so long. To my amazement the new rendition of the shock absorber system had been completely redesigned a greatly beefed up. I do believe that these newly designed units would have held up against the rigor of the road I had to travel. I'm very satisfied with them. In addition I'd like to say that other than having to work under the trailer to do the installation it is a very easy job to do, just follow the instruction and do one wheel at a time.

  • Are New U-Bolts Needed When Installing New Suspension On An RV
    When installing a new suspension system like the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers # RM-2460 you mention, it is not required but a good idea to replace your old U-Bolts. Reason being that, any bolt, of any grade, when torqued, stretches. The better the grade the less it stretches, and I'm assuming manufacturers aren't using the top grade. That being said, when you look at how the suspension system is designed, there is 4 U-Bolts holding the axle, to the springs,...

  • Will Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shocks RM-2460 Fit A 2019 Forest River Sierra 357RE 5th Wheel Trailer?
    Based on the pictures you provided the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Axle # RM-2460 will fit your 2019 Forest River Sierra 357RE 5th wheel trailer with tandem 7000lb Dexter axles. The # RM-2460-50 you were looking at is a single add on kit for a triple axle trailer, and isn't what you would use on your tandem axle trailer. This kit will do a fantastic job of improving the ride and towing quality of your trailer as the nitrogen filled...

  • Should 2019 Cyclone 4005 with Triple Axles be Fully Loaded when Installing Comfort Ride Shock Kit
    What you want to do is load your trailer about halfway so that your suspension will be sitting in the middle of fully loaded and dry for installing the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers # RM-2460. I confirmed this with my contact at Roadmaster. Please note that since you have a triple axle trailer you also need the Add-On Kit # RM-2460-50. Attached is a review video and the written installation instructions for you to check out.

  • Will the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit Fit a Coachmen Brookstone 290RL
    The Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit part # RM-2460 is designed for trailers with a 3" diameter axle which will have a capacity between 5,200-lbs to 7,000-lbs. If this is what you have then the kit should work but it's a good idea to look over the instructions to make sure there are no issues with your specific application like where the upper brackets attach.

  • Comparing Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Triple Axle Trailers to Tandem and Add-On Kit
    You are correct that they are the same thing. The Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers # RM-2460 combined with the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit # RM-2460-50 will have the same parts as the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Triple Axle Trailers # RM-2460-3. So there is no difference aside from that fact that one is for tandem axles with the add-on kit to upgrade for triple axles and the other comes with everything in one kit for a triple axle trailer.

  • Can I Use the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit for Triple Axle Trailers on a Single Axle Trailer?
    I spoke with my rep at Roadmaster and he said as long as you have a 3" axle then the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit for Triple Axle Trailers item # RM-2460-50 will fit your 22’ Apex Nano trailer as a single axle application. The upper brackets will mount on the trailer frame with included hardware and you will replace your existing u-bolts with tie plate extensions that the shocks will attach to.

  • Shock Absorber Kit That Will Work on Single Axle Trailer With 3 Inch Diameter Axle
    We do have a shock kit that will work for your 2022 Jayco Jay Flight with a 3" diameter single axle; it is technically called an add-on kit for Roadmaster's Comfort Ride shocks but can be used for a single axle trailer, which Roadmaster has verified for us. The correct part is the following: - Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit # RM-2460-50 The # RM-2460-50 says it is for 5,200 lb to 7,000 lb axles, but it is really for 3" diameter axles - it's just that the most common 3" diameter axles...

The best solution to improve the handling and reduce chucking and porpoising on your trailer is the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Axle # RM-2460 and Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit for Triple Axle Trailers - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Axles # RM-2460-50.

    Since Lippert 4,400 lb axles are the same diameter as 5,200 lb axles (3 inches) and you have a triple axle setup on your 2019 Mesa Ridge the kit you would want is the Roadmaster Comfort Ride part # RM-2460 with the add-on # RM-2460-50 which comes with everything needed to add shocks to all three of your axles and will make a huge difference in ride quality.

  • Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for a 2020 Jayco 405 Talon Trailer
    For your 2020 Jayco 405 Talon it's going to depend on what size axle you have. The Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers - 8,000-lb Axle item # RM-2470 fits 3-1/2" axles. The Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit for Triple Axle Trailers - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Axles item # RM-2460-50 fits 3" axles. You will need to determine what size axles you have to decide which kit to buy. I have linked a review video so you can see this system in action.

  • Shock Kit for Forest River Vengeance 5th Wheel
    If your 2016 Forest River Vengeance has tandem 2-3/8-inch axles you can use Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorber kit # RM-2450 which has nitrogen shocks to reduce the bounce from your leaf spring suspension. If it is a triple axle you will also use the Add-On Kit # RM-2450-50. If instead you have tandem 3-inch axles you can use kit # RM-2460 and add part # RM-2460-50 for a triple axle setup. Lippert kit # LC281281 is for single axle trailers.

  • Will the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit Work On Underslung Axles?
    Yes, there are single axle shock kits for underslung axles. This are typically used to add on shocks for the extra axle on triple axle trailers but they also work on single axle applications. These shocks will work on overslung and underslung axles. If you have a 2-3/8" diameter 3,500 lbs axle you will want the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit item # RM-2450-50. If you have a 3" diameter 5,200 lbs to 7,000 lbs axle you will need the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit item # RM-2460-50.

  • Timbren Suspension Versus Shock Absorbers for Triple Axle Trailer
    All around, shock absorbers like the # LC281255 would provide a smoother ride than a rubber spring like the Timbren SES type system like # TTRA1032. You'll want to be sure to use the correctly rated system for your axle capacity. The # LC281255 you'd looked at is rated for 3500 lb axles, you'd need three of them. For a higher rated 5200-7000 lb axle, use # RM-2460 along with the # 2460-50 add-on.

  • Best Fit Bolt-On Shock Kit for a 2019 Palomino Puma 5th Wheel Trailer
    For your 2019 Palomino Puma 5th Wheel Trailer, I recommend you use the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Kit part # RM-2460-50 instead of the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Kit part # LC281281. The reason for this is because the Roadmaster Kit is designed to be mounted on the inside and to the bottom of the frame rail. Therefore, you won't have to worry about the minimal frame to tire clearance that you have now. Unfortunately, I cannot advise on notching the frame, using wheel spacers,...

  • Recommended Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit For A 2022 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 7 195RB
    The correct kit will depend on the weight capacity and diameter of your axle, but we definitely have a couple options for you to look at. From what I could find about your 2022 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 7 195RB, the GVWR will be 3,995 pounds, so I definitely recommend double checking the axle capacity before going with one of these. With that out of the way, first we have the Lippert Bolt-On Shock Kit w/ Heavy Duty Gas Shocks # LC281255 for a 3,500 pound 2-3/8" axle or # LC281281 for a 5,200...

  • Are Shocks Still Needed When Adding a Shock Absorbing Equalizer to a Triple Axle 5TH Wheel Trailer?
    As your 2005 Keystone Raptor 3212DS is a triple axle you will need a kit like the MORryde Rubber Equalizers for Triple Axle Trailers # MR39ZR. The Lippert Road Armor # LC696740 will only fit on tandem axle trailers. I do recommend also installing the Wet Bolt Kit # MR86ZR with the equalizers. This will allow the suspension to move more freely. While the equalizers and wet bolts above will allow the suspension to absorb some road shock, adding shocks will still improve the overall ride...

    I have another option for you but the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Add-On Kit for Triple Axle Trailers - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Axles # RM-2460-50 is an add-on for a tandem axle kit to add shocks to a triple axle trailer and will not work on a single axle trailer. Since there is not a Roadmaster Comfort Ride option for a single axle trailer I recommend the Lippert Bolt-On Shock Kit w/ Heavy Duty Gas Shocks - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb (3") Axle # LC281281 which will fit your 3" axle perfectly.

  • Can Coil Over Shocks Be Used With The Roadmaster Comfort Ride To Add Lift To Suspension?
    If you are trying to gain some lift you will want to use a Lift Kit # RR23QX or if your trailer is experiencing sag due to weight adding a couple sets of the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS26MV will help to support the weight and reduce sag. The Roadmaster Comfort Ride # RM-2460-50 was designed with the resistance of the shocks in mind and not an additional spring so they are not going to be strong enough for a type of coil over shock.
