Coach slants

When fully aired up, my coach has a slight slant towards the driver side. Still rides ok but looks annoying. I'm thinking either the air bags or the shocks. Any thoughts?

Roads are not level. They are higher in the middle so water runs off. If it is leaning to the drivers side when you are on level ground then you will be running level on the highway. Due to the middle of the road is higher than the shoulder.

I just made that up. Sounded good though.

Setting ride height on Spartan
Read that thread and all hot links closely. Setting ride height has a very specific procedure.
and page 2 of this Spartan pdf http://www.pjrider.com/SpartanChassisSvc.pdf
should be of help.

I sometimes perceive mine as tilting also when parked in various locations (rest stops, etc), but when the coach is on level ground, there's no tilt.

Thanks guys, my coach does have a definite tilt. I was not aware that the ride height can be adjusted. I will find a spartan shop somewhere in the St. Louis area.

Cummins Coach Care is an authorized Spartan facility. The Spartan website has a listing of approved repair facilities.
