We have recently purchased our first motorhome and today I noticed a slight tilt to the driver side when facing the motorhome head on.   Does anyone have any ideas on what may be causing this. 

 

Thanks for any help as this has been quite a learning experience so far.

dsimmons,

 

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

 

It is very rare for a motorhome to have perfect left/right weight distribution.  And, with a leaf spring suspension (assume what you have-- if not, let us know what chassis you have) it is pretty common for a coach to be lower on the heavy side.

 

First thing is to move you heavy items to the "high side".  Then, any good truck spring shop can install a spacer  or additional leaf (if quite a lot of weight difference) on the low side.

 

If you have all wheel position weights, would appreciate knowing them.  I know RVSEF will be at the Perry FMCA Convention doing all wheel position weighing.
