We now have 22000 miles on our 24c and now have begun to sense that it is not handling as well perhaps as it did when fresh and new. Rolling road surfaces and wind are the issues. As the body rolls the rv seems to steer itself more than before. I am told that it may be a by product of the twin I beam Ford axle..??? It is enough of a constant steering issue that I will not let the DW drive the unit. Compared to our previous GM unit this rv requires constant attention when steering. Is this common with the Ford chassis?
Secondly, the unit seems to be very sensitive to wind which is probably similar to many large boxes going down the road in wind. The gusty blows are the worst and recently in NC we were so uncomfortable with this drama that we exited the interstate to be safe. Could a upgrade of the shocks help? Larger roll bars? Any ideas would certainly be appreciated.
PS...I should add that we run 10ply Michelin rib tires and have made no changes in the coach drive train or anything else since it's purchase.
When was the last time you had it aligned by a real truck shop? Over time and road conditions this will be changed. Than there are several other things that will help, Ie front stabilzer bars there is a whole thread here that covers some of these issues.
