steering

hi all ,
i have a monaco cayman 37 pdq xl 2007
my problem is when turning the steering wheel from left to right i have a hissing noise , this is when we are not moving , and engine running

when we are driving at about 50 mph i feel the steering wheel pulsing / vibrating when loading the steering by turning it a bit to the right or left

we also get what feels like a lot of free play in the steering wheel have checked all the steering joint but can't find anything

have just put 6 new bridgestone tyres on and have run the front at 105 psi then let them down to 90 psi better but not wright

any help or advice thanks steve

I also have the "hissing" noise when turning the steering wheel. I know there are grease fittings behind the plastic steering shaft cover inside the coach, but I haven't tried adding grease there yet to see if that will help.

Hissing noise in steering usually has to do with power steering fluid passing through a valve or with hydraulics doing the same. It could indicate a problem with the steering pump system.

I did change the power steering fluid and filters and it reduced the noise but did not eliminate it!

Agree with bborc, I've had two pushers and they both do it. Only really noticeable when turning though.
