2000 Country Coach Magna tilts to left when traveling

Our coach levels great when parked, but when we put in travel mode it tilts to the left.

You have a problem with one of the rear ride height valves.

start engine without moving for 10-20 minutes until the air pressure is in 120 psi. then go out and check if the coach leans to left. if it does, either the rear ride height needs to be adjusted or one of the height valves (left one most likely) is out of life. either is an inexpensive fix.

if you see no leaning at all at that time, that would be very weird. recommend finding a heavy truck chassis mechanic to take a look.

On my 2000 Magna it was one of the HWH solenoid valves on the rear of the coach. Having said that, it appears based on all the posts on this and other forums that it is likely one of your ride height valves.

l was traveling in the general direction of HWH and made an appointment. At first they didn't want to make the appointment because they don't get involved with the ride height valves. I just wanted to make sure where the problem was and if it was HWH get it fixed while at their plant.

You can adjust the coach to ride height manually and before moving the coach, pull the 7.5 amp fuse at position #12 in the HWH brain. On my coach the brain is in the electrical compartment just in front of the forward bay. On the passenger side up high. If you do pull the fuse, stop occasionally and check your ride height as a small leak in one of your air bags will change your ride height.

I put a switch in series with the fuse so that I wouldn't have to unload the basement to get at the fuse.

I use the height from ground to the top of the wheel well as a check on ride height. On my coach that measurement is about 45 1/2" to 46" at all four wheel positions.

The coach will level when the parking brake is set and stay there until you release the parking brake and then the coach goes into travel mode. That is when the ride height valves come into play.

If you can level with the parking brake set and then go out of level on one side when the brake is released, you have a bad ride height valve on that side. An easy fix and a cost of about 60 bux.

If you do the work yourself, be careful and do not go twisting the valve. It is possible to get it 180 degrees off and when you install it, it will work in the opposite direstion. Also they are easy to break. There is a plastic pin on the inside about the size of pencil lead and it can be broken off very easily.

Morning! I had the same problem on our allure except it was leaning to the right while in travel mode. Had it in our truck shop (our mechanic does cars to rigs) and he looked it over. He determined it was the travel solenoid sticking in the hwh bank of solenoids in the rear. He toggled it back and forth and maybe tapped on the solenoids and got them to break free and now work fine.

So this isn't to say one of your rear leveling valves (should have 2) isn't faulty either. The way to trouble shoot this is if it is in travel mode and there isn't air supply to the leveling valve on the low side, the solenoid is stuck. If air is getting to the leveling valve while in travel mode, leveling valve is bad. Either one could be the issue, valve or solenoid.

I will try to attach the 500 series HWH troubleshooting manual.

Good luck!
