Talking New to Forum

Hello we bought a 2016 Thor Vegas last August. Had some issues to begin with, dealing with the chassis battery and couldn't get the dealer to get the problem taken care of. But hopefully that is all behind us now. We have taken it out a couple of times dry camping since and had no problems (fingers crossed).

I had a road master steering stabilizer put on because I thought that the front end shimmied a bit, however, I did not get a front end alignment before doing so. My mistake, but still learning. I will be getting that done asap and have the stabilizer readjusted. Other than that we look forward to taking it on our first long trip to Colorado at the end of July.

I have to say reading all of the great mods everyone has done to their RV makes me feel a lot better and more comfortable about owning this awesome RV. I look forward to making some of my own Mods soon!

Welcome to the forum! You will find a whole lot of experience and helpful suggestions here. Be sure you access Ed Felker's excellent crowd-sourced manual. (Look for the Sticky) It will answer many of your questions!

Alignment will not cause shimmy it is caused by something out of balance or out of round

Thanks for the replies! The 1st thing I did when I was lurking around was print out Ed Felker's owners manual. It has help a great deal. looking forward to tinkering with my satellite this weekend.
