Wheel Cut

I know my Alpine Coach turns nicely, but does anyone know what the degree of wheel cut is?

Mike

What is you model year? Early Alpines had a 48 degree, late 2003s and newer had at least a 52 degrees, perhaps higher/more.

It's not that hard to measure. You will find it has more on a left turn than a right. But it is nowhere near modern coaches that have 55 degrees.

Mike,

Just wanted to make sure you knew that Alpine Coach NorCal is having a rally in Coloma May 15-18. And Alpine SoCal is having a week-long rally in Napa May 19-27. For more details, go to alpinesocal.com and/or alpinecoachassociation.com and look at the rally schedules.

And we, the 2 Mike's, are having an Alpine Socal Rally in Pismo Beach in November.

Cheers from Hanford, CA!

Hi

Is there a way to increase the cut on an older model Alpine? In my case a 2000.

Thanks

Geoff

Yes. You need to have the drag link bent and then the stops adjusted. Lots of discussion on this in older threads.

Thanks for the offer Mike. The MH is in Mt Vernon right now having the awning replaced (don't ask ). We won't be back to pick it up until June. I'll look to see what I have for bend then .
