|After leaving your facility this afternoon, Ellen and I motored up to Waterloo to spend the night; but notably it was also an excellent test of the new suspension system! To begin with, I-80 was an absolute "zoo" of the usual uncourteous bunch that you find out there on Friday afternoons. A little challenging no matter what you're driving! However.... The really good news was that with a strong, gusty cross-wind coming at us from the 10 o-clock direction (it was mostly SSW), the Tsunami handled like we were driving into a light breeze. And I was flowing with the traffic at 65 to 70+ mph. No problem with surface irregularities and coach stability during lane changing either. Then we encountered more high winds and heavy (torrential) rain as we headed north from Cedar Rapids. No problem there either. The coach handled much like a big SUV. As I got more and more comfortable with the new suspension system, my comfort level and confidence steadily increased until I was driving the motorhome as if it were, indeed, my Escalade generally using just one hand on the wheel to guide the thing along! Amazing what this did to our coach! Now it's almost like piloting a railroad locomotive down the tracks! J
Thank you personally once again for your help over the past several months, and kindly convey my appreciation to all the HWH folks who worked so diligently this week to make this upgrade a successful reality for us. The courtesy we were shown during our stay was well beyond the "call of duty" and beyond what we expected.
Bottom line both Ellen and I are very glad to have the new system on our coach, and wouldn't ever have another motorhome without Active Air.

Wow! Active Air solved our challenge and more.

Dear Mr. Paul Hanser, President,
First, we want to thank you and all your employees for the courtesy you gave my wife and I including the free lunch and great pies. It is a great pleasure to see there are still companies that put their customers first. This was our third visit to your company and we were treated with a smile and respect. We will be coming back, if not just for the lunch and friendship.
We want to congratulate your company in making a great product, we are referring to your Active Air System. We had the system installed on our 2007 Itasca Horizon in August of 2007. When we left we drove to Winnebago Inc. in some high winds and the RV handled like there was just a breeze. It also cornered without leaning over. The roads from HWH to Winnebago were winding and before the Active Air was installed we had to take the turns at less than the posted safe speed. After, we could take them at the posted speed with ease. Where the highway was rough we raised the unit and the bumps were less jarring. The rest of our trip across the US was just as enjoyable.
When we parked for the night we just activated the Air Leveling System. We were level almost instantly and in the morning we were our way in no time.
The improvemnet in the ride and handling made it well worth the price. We would like to see the system as an option on all middle priced units.
Again, thank you and your staff for the great time, our birds thank you as they enjoy the new, smoother ride.

It's now been several years since Active Air was installed on our coach. Just a follow-up to say that we are just as happy today with the Active Air system as when we first drove it after installation. In light of today's economic down-turn, our decision to upgrade our coach so it drives like "New" has been reaffirmed every time we get on the road. Thanks again HWH for creating, manufacturing and installing such superb products!

Do you have a system to replace or improve the parabolic springs on the 2001 Freightliner XC chassis?
July 2nd, 2008
Yes, the Active Air can be installed on your coach. The primary function of the Active Air is to control the roll of the coach and provide driving comfort that will relieve a lot of the fatigue that is typically felt after a long day of driving. The system also comes with the HWH Air Leveling package for leveling and keeping the coach stable when parked.

I own a 2005 Monaco Windsor equiped with a Firestone air ride system with auto leveling, no manual override or control. This system appears to somewhat the same. Can this be installed on my coach? I have had nothing but trouble with the Firestone system. Most of the time it will not level correctly when we park. I assume this system has complete air leveling ability. The Firestone system is unreliable when it comes to leveling plus I can't find anyone who knows anything about the system other then Monaco. Thanks John

Our number one mission with the 2009 Wanderlodge Premier XL was to build the safest, most reliable luxury coach in the world. That is why we chose the HWH slide system. Their integrated slide and ride system, Active Air, provided us a proven, reliable system and has resulted in the best riding and handling Wanderlodge ever.

The best keeps getting better. Foretravel is proud to work with HWH and their Active Air System to provide owners with the best ride possible. I installed this system on my personal motorcoach and couldn't be more pleased with it's real-time performance. Foretravel and HWH have been strategic partners for over 33 years, and it's because of their innovation that our relationship continues to grow stronger. When you look for a Foretravel, look for Active Air.

The Active Air System can only be installed on Coach chassis that already have a full air ride suspension. Unfortunately, we cannot install on the Velvet ride Magnum chassis.

We have a 1998 Safari Panther 425 with bfgoodrich velvet drive. Can we install your system on this coach?
September 13th, 2007
Active Air can be installed on the coach at our Moscow, IA facility. Active Air is primarily for roll control, however matching shock absorbers with Active Air should result in a better ride.

I have a 2003 Monaco Knight with 4 airbags. The ride is rough and harsh. If I had known that it only had 4 airbags I would never have bought it. Is there anything that can be done to help?
September 12th, 2007
Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Active Air can be installed on your 1997 Spartan air ride chassis. The system takes approximately 5 days to install and you can stay in the coach while the work is being performed. We would need another day or so to remove your 3 point leveling system and install an HWH 4 point computer-controlled system which would actually operate through the same control panel module as the Active Air. Please contact Jeff Wallick for details at (800) 321-3494.

I have a 2005 winnebago journey pusher and would like to know if adding active air suspension to my present air system is possible or necessary to improve highway handling. If so what the aproximate cost would be and who or where the work would need to be done. My dealer is bill plemmons rv world in nc thanks.

We are brand-new RVers who own a 30 ft. 2005 Four Winds Hurricane. So far we have been on one longer trip and found the steering very tiring -- especially when trucks would pass us. Is it possible to install the Active Air System -- even if we add our Hyuandai Elantra (Manual Transm.) behind? Also, where could it be installed and what would be the approx. cost?
August 14th, 2007
We do not currently supply our Active Air system to Newmar Corporation. The HWH Active Air system can be installed at our factory service center in Moscow, IA. A test drive can also be arranged. You can contact Jeff Wallick at (800) 321-3494 for more details.
August 13th, 2007
Is Active Air the same system that you supply for NEWMAR Corp. that they call. COMFORT DRIVE. If not what is the difference? Can the system be installed on a 2005 Coach. If yes where would we find a dealer on the East Coast to see or test drive the system.

I would like to know if you install the Active Air on any new coaches? Also what year you started the installation. I am looking at purchasing a used coach and would like to know what coach manufactures have the Active Air suspension system.

Dear Kelly and Jack,
Thank you for your inquiry concerning our Active Air System. The Active Air was designed for chassis with an existing full air ride suspension. Active Air is not applicable to steel spring coaches. We do offer HWH hydraulic leveling systems that will level your coach when parked. Several control options are available from the 225 series Joystick-controlled to the 625 series Single Step. Either of these system can be installed by a dealer in your area.
July 2nd, 2007
Can Active Air be a sole source for leveling when stoped, without other levelers on. I have no levelers on my 1994 Rexhall Aerbus, and it is already set up with air bag shocks (Ride Rite) in back only; but this is not capable of leveling me when parked. Please help me to understand if I can use the Active Air system to fully level my rig when parked as a stand alone system. What height will they raise? what weight can they handle? our they as good as other ways of leveling; whats the differance? whats the differance in price, etc.? I am a disabled woman traveling full time in my 30 ft.class A motorhome and need to understand what is best for me, please do respond, I am desperate.

My wife and I currently own a 2004 safari zanzibar I am interested in sofening up the ride a bit. it is on a roadmater 4 bag system. Stopping the back and forth motion that has emptied the kitchen cabinet caused at low speeds by a angeled speed bump or uneven spots in a rallie field. the motor home continued to move back and forth even after it was dead stopped. Can you add additional air bags? The front seemed to bottom out on some rough roads

I would like to talk with the Country Coach owners that have installed Active Air systems. Our coach is a 2001 Magna 36' with single slide on drivers side and left side weight has been causing left rear ride height problems. I am also interested to hear about gusty side wind help from Active Air system. P Dark

We've looked at trading our 2001 triple slide Newell, which we love, on a new one. Whoa! Big cost, so we're updating our coach at the factory and keeping it. Updates cost dramatically less than a new coach. Traveling in Oklahoma and out west, we often encounter crosswinds, it's a full time and tiring job keeping it between the white lines, so I'd like a more stable platform requiring less steering input and anticipating a curve would be good too. Don't have any porposing issues. All new air valves and control system would be nice too at this point although we've had no trouble with our HWH air ride. Oh yes, when parked, our suspension is pretty "tender", especially with the air dumped. I can feel the coach move when my wife brushes her teeth!

My name is John and I own a 40 foot, 2004 Safari Zanzibar Class A Motor Home on a RR4 Roadmaster Chasis. It rides okay but not great when we are not towing. When I hook up our half ton Chevy pick-up to tow, the front end of the motor home porpoises so bad it feels like the front end of the motor home is coming right off the ground. Coming North bound on I295 aroung Richmond, Virginia, we hit a series of small bumps and almost lost control of the motor home.

I have a 2003 Beaver Monterey that porpoise's when I go over a dip in the road. The RV does not seem to sway very much other than when I'm on a two lane road and a large truck either comes up behind me or passes coming at me.
Do you have anything that could correct this situation? If so, what would the cost be, with installation?

Thank you for your inquiry regarding having an HWH Active Air system installed on your Country Coach.
Because no OEM's are currently installing the Active Air system on the assembly line, upgrades to an HWH Air Leveling system must be done here at our factory in Moscow, IA. There are currently no field installation facilities properly trained to do the installation.
Since this is an aftermarket installation on a motor coach that uses an HWH system, there are discounts available, but for an actual quote, please contact Jeff Wallick at HWH for an information packet and pricing.
March 11th, 2007
We are having a Country Coach being built at the factory. Ship date is approx. May 10th. From what I can tell, it will be equipped with the HWH Air Leveling System. My question: Can the HWH Air Leveling System be field upgraded to the Active Air system? If so, what would be the cost.
October 9th, 2006
Following is my summation of the results of adding "Active Air" to our coach.
IT'S MORE FUN TO DRIVE!!
1. It reduces body roll.
2. It reduces front end dip on low speed cornering
3. It eliminates "front end bottoming out" on most highway dips.
4. It counteracts the leaning of the coach when taking curves at highway speeds.
5. Steering is easier - there is less wheel movement.
6. It makes traveling safer and more comfortable.
IT'S DEFINITELY MORE FUN TO DRIVE!!
