Shock Absorbers: An Integral Part of Recreational Vehicle Developments 740678
Various applications of the familiar tubular hydraulic shock absorber to recreational vehicles are reviewed. There is a brief of operating characteristics of hydraulic shock absorbers as a preliminary to discussing damping requirements for suspensions, steering dampers, sway controllers, and stabilisers found on recreational vehicles.
The review covers present use of shock absorbers on motorcycles, snowmobiles, golf carts, boat trailers, trailer brakes, outboard motors, travel trailers, sway control motor homes, and camper stabilizers. For some of these, possibilities for future developments are indicated.
