    Thanks for all the great info. Going to start doing the suggestions that were mentioned. It is a old coach but it fits us really well and we have enjoyed seeing this beautiful country. FMCA community is awesome and making new friends are the icing on the cake. Thanks Jim

    Bill I got so excited after watching that you tube video I went out in my PJs and flash light to look at that anti sway bar adjustment, I don't have that setup on a E-450 ford. BUMMER, I thought I was on the road to non cardiac arrest driving! Blue Ox was a no go also for my year, only went back to 2004. I have done a considerable amount of reading on FMCA since I joined last March, I remember reading about the motor home bouncing over a speed bump no more then 1&1/2 times or you need new shocks. Thanks for the speed bump info wolf10. I stood on the door step by the drivers door and it did not feel sloppy or bounce very much at all. It seem a lot of videos are for the class A. It did look like a small not very strong steering damper. Back to the drawing board for more awesome ideas. My name is Jim, I use my son Sean for all my user name, it keeps it simple for a old man. Thanks again

    It is a good thing this is all written in front of me or I would never keep up with all these questions. 4 wheel alignment no, Ford E-450, 60,000 miles, new brakes and tires install right before I bought it, has done it since the day I got it. The first time I was on a entrance ramp merging on to a interstate and a semi passed me at 70 mph, it was a life changing experience, I have never been the same! I would have thought that the front tire wear would give me a clue to what was going on as toe in or out. I have pulled over to a rest area and applied the brakes firmly to see if it would pull left or right, negative reaction. Will do some crawling under front end and investigate. I would like to thank you guys for giving me some great insights, I am truly thankful for such a great bunch of people that are willing to help others. Take care, Jim

    Thanks Bill for answering, it wanders and seems to make it's mind to stay left or right and stays there for awhile. I have even tried to turn my wheel and put on the brakes to change it from favoring left or right. Have drove 8,000 miles since I bought it last December with no unusual tire wear. Since driving this thing I have lost a few good years of my life and I am 64 so I don't have a bunch left!
