Front End Alignment - Help

I think it was on this forum:
There was a post about a motorhome that wandered all over the road and I think the coach was a Monaco. The poster spent quite a bit of money trying to fix it. Finally someone told him about a shop in Florida that knew exactly how to align the front end so it would drive straight. The poster quoted the exact figures of the alignment. I am have the same problem with my coach. I am hoping to get the name of the shop in Florida (I think it was Florida). The frontend alignment specs were somewhat different than the factory specs.
Thanks.... I appreciate your help.

When they align your coach make sure they do a ride height adjustment.

I agree with Steve about the ride height. When aligning if the caster is adjustable go with at least 2 deg pos. go with 1/4 inch pos toe. I did this on my DP and oooo what a difference with the wandering. My mh has a solid front axle so I used shims to get the 2deg pos caster.

These are probably the two you had read about. I have no personal experience with either of them, but have heard consistently good reports.
