RS26 leaning left

Hello to all. I am wondering if anyone else has this condition. I have a new (8 months old) Quantum RS26 and it is tilting/leaning to the left. I measured the distance from the body to the top of the tire. The left side is about 1 less than the right ride. I ask Thor about it and they said that is because the bedroom slide is on the left side. Is it just a poor design to have the bedroom slid, the fresh water tank (40 gal), the generator, and propane tank all on the left side? On the other hand, is this a problem?
Does anyone else have this problem?
I am thinking that it will cause uneven tire ware on the left side.
Has anyone put air bags/suspension on an RS26 (with slightly more air in the left side) to level out this condition?
Thanks in advance
Phil

It could be a problem if you are overloaded. I'd start by getting all four corners weighed to make sure you are below suspension and tire ratings.

For what it's worth, jacking a vehicle back to level by using air springs or different springs doesn't change the load very much. It may bring vehicle back to level, but it won't redistribute weight very much.

Leaning 1 foot to left, get it to repair facility NOW. Hopefully you meant 1 inch.

thanks

Thanks Chance and Traveling. The RV is not overloaded. It has very little in it. My thought was that because the bedroom slide, water tank, generator, and propane tank are all on the left side that might be causing the lean.
And yes I meant a 1 inch difference (NOT one foot) between the right and left sides.LOL
Thanks again
Phil

Sadly it still could be overloaded even if you haven't put anything into it. The only way to be sure is to take it to a scale.

Some units come from the factory overweight!
