Shock Missing

I went Friday and had new tires put on my Infinity and Igenerally let the shop do the work and bring it home. the shop was having some trouble and I went out to see if I coould offer some help. We the technician took the rear tire from the drivers side off the shock was missing. It looked like it had never been installed at the factory. There was not worn marks to indicate the shock broke or was ever there. Has anyone had this happen? Do I call Lippert and replace the shocks on that side? I was expressionless when I saw an empty space.

You didn't say what year the RV is. By the time you go through the dealer/manufacture dance you could have stuck on a pair of shocks and be done.

I don't think they have shocks... ever seen a boat trailer with shocks or a house trailer? I think he was goofing on the owner. Were there shocks on ANY of the other wheels?

If you want to, you can add them.

I have seen them on a few travel trailers over the years. Typically it was something like an Airstream.

Something very light would possibly have them.
