Is my motor home under warranty or not?

I have a 2018 Thor Hurricane 34P. It has 25,500 miles. I am a full-time RVr staying months at a time during the school year because Iím a teacher. A month ago, I had to change camp sites. While driving I experience sharp pulls to the right and the steering seemed loose. Also, the right front suspension was listing downward. For the least four weeks I tried to get a mechanic appointment. I finally got a mobile mechanic to look at the steering and suspension last Friday. He found a broken shock, a worn wheel bearing, malfunctioning tie rod assembly and drag link, all caused by a broken king pin. He gave me an invoice for parts for $2,137. I have yet to receive his labor invoice.
My question isÖ. Is any of the chassis, including suspension and steering under warranty?

Generally bumper-to-bumper warranties are valid for three years, absent any recalls.

Not. Buy why ask us when you can get the true answer straight from Ford. Just need your vehicle VIN.

A caution;
Are full timers denied(deniable)coach warranty claims?

I know this is chassis but
Below is a link to most of my modifications either accomplished or pending.

Hello and sorry for your issues. The king Pin if that is truly whats wrong with your coach needs to be greased annually. When they are dry they have a lot of play in them, it's always nice to get a second opinion as well. You stated that you live in your rv full time, from sitting alone the first thing to do is check air in all tires before moving especially when the rv has sat for long periods of time, secondly from not moving the rv on a daily basis rust forms on the rotors and could potentially cause the steering wheel to pull in one direction or the other. No harm in this as driving it for a few hundred miles will clean them right up. I would definitely get a second opinion and unfortunately no you rv is more than likely not under warranty. As someone else had pointed out earlier, if there are any recalls on your rv then yes these would be covered. Good luck and let us know if you have someone else look at it and what they found. Hope this helped some, again I'm sorry for your issues.
