tinytom took the words right out of my mouth. He is telling you the way it is. Radial Belt's are laid much like shinges on your House roof, overlapping each other. Sometimes they shift inside the belt of the tire, causing what is known as a RADIAL PULL
. Alignments are difficult even on a passenger car, much less a motorhome. Caster
setting is what makes a vehicle pull to one side over the other, Camber
just stands the tire straight up, and last the Toe-In
points the tires in the right direction. The majority of Alignment shop's know the short cuts, and adjust as little as possible, all the while charging you the same price as a complete alignment, JMHO. My motorhome is 12 yrs old, just turned 40,000 miles, never had an alignment, and believe me I am not about to change it, no tire wear & smooth & staright.
Good luck, and be safe
