Default Bouncing

I was on my way home and all of a sudden my 2005 Gulfstream Friendship G7 40ft the front started to jump up and down so bad I had to pull off the road. Any one know what might of happened? I got it home going down the back roads at 15-20 mph. I was on I96 between Grand Rapids & Lansing Mi.

Check for tire separation on your front tires.

Did you check the air pressure on the air ride system? Are the pillows inflated?

It definitely has something to do with the tire or your shock absorbers. First I would have the tires on the front, side if you could tell was doing the bouncing. Lift with your leveler one side at a time to clear the ground and rotate the tire. You might have a tire separation and is close to blowing up. Be careful!

Thanks you guys I would have never thought of tire separation. The air bags are all up. The shocks is what I was thinking but this home did sit for a long time tires could be rotten.
