Motorhome newbies with 2015 Vista 31KE

We purchased a 2015 Winnebago Vista 31KE in Dec 2021 with only 31K miles. Upgrading it with a M&G braking system, Koni shocks and Sumo springs. Looking forward to hitting the road in April and this summer. We are very excited to have a motorhome now.

Great! Keep in mind the journey is just as important as the destination, relax and drive in your comfort zone.

Welcome aboard!
We have the 2016 year model 31KE and it has treated us well so far. I look forward to hearing about how you like the upgrades your making, especially the suspension.

So far only driven a short distance but it is definately an improved ride. Found out I have the heavy duty sway bars and steering stabilizer. Won't be taking it on a trip until the end of march but wanting it to be very road ready which I think it is now.

Valve extenders

I do have valve extenders on all tires. The rear outside and front tires are Flexx brand. The rear Flexx extender makes a 180 degree bend so the stem faces out instead of into the wheel.
The front Flexx extender just extends the valve stem to make it a bit easier to access. The rear inside extenders came with the rig when I bought it, so brand is unknown but they have a braided cover over what looks to be a rubber hose.
Im trying to attach pictures. Pardon the dirty wheels, were on the road and its sloppy out there!
