Hello,
Have had a slight rythmic vibration between 50 and 55 mph since we've owned the motorhome.
Going to take it in and have it balanced and the front end alignment checked.
I plan on taking it to a local tire dealer that has a shop that does big truck work such as this but I'm wondering is there anything specific I should be looking for them to do. This requires taking each tire off to balance so are there certain precautions to let them know to take?
Appreciate any responses on this subject.
Thanks,
Letsgoagain

I had a similar problem with my coach. Had front tires/wheels balanced (on coach -- your system is better). During this process have the tech check for both the tires and wheels being in-round. Both my front tires were out of round. Were replaced and vibration is gone.
