New tires

When we bought our coach it had new Sampson tires on the front.. Put about 23k miles on it since then.. We just got home after a 7 week trip to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI.. The ride up front got shakier as the miles rolled by getting home.. by the time we got here the front drivers side tire was worn way down on the inside and cupped.. Got it down the truck tire shop and had new Michelens put on and an alignment dones.. This coach has never ridden so smooth since we have owned it.. Can't wait to head over to Tucson in 6 weeks for the winter.
Yesterday I changed my oil and filter, fuel filters.. It is quite a chore to get those pesky filters off.. but got it all done and I am sure I saved a bundle.. Most of a gallon went in the oil filter and 20 quarts in the pan and dipstick showed right on..

Sounds like you might also have an alignment issue. Since you found a good tire guy, see if he can also do an alignment. If not, I'd bet he knows someone who does a good job. I had a bad alignment and wore a Michelin down to a steel belt. A good alignment and the tires look like new with over 20,000 on them.
