2000 Magna steering wander / front end specs

I'm experiencing some steering wander on my MH and was thinking that perhaps I should have the front end alignment checked. Does anyone know what the specs might be for my 2000 Country Coach Magna MH with IFS? My owners manuals don't show the specs for front end alignment.

I've installed new front tires and know that both tires are running at the correct 120 psi. yet still I'm experiencing a degree of road wander requiring me to constantly make minor steering corrections back and forth.

I've read elsewhere that sometimes increasing tow-in can help with my problem.

Any other thoughts or advice? Thank you.

X's 2 - Do all wheels in the alignment, and have them check over (they will anyways) suspension components for wear. Bushings can wear out and cause some wandering.

Also ask them to check the play in the steering box, sometimes not felt in the steering wheel, but can cause some front end wandering.

Also, how are the front tires? Are the properly inflated, per the actual four corner weight of the coach and tire manufacturer psi charts, and not too old, and not showing signs of uneven wear. Tires, can add to wandering, if not properly dialed in.

Best of luck to you, hope it's a simple adjustment,
Smitty
