Thanks Jim. Didn't know what they put on those chassis. It seems to me it would be pretty simple to have someone turning the steering back and forth just through the slack portion and have somebody under the mh seeing what is moving and what is not moving. If no movement of any of the components under the mh then the problem is in the steering box or the ujoints in the steering column. What confuses me is that has been said that it has already been done. So with actually looking at the mh in person anything that we suggest has already been checked.

As BFLin suggested, go through the process in post number two. Many owners with your vintage have tightened their steering box. You have the TRW Hydrapower steering box like many monaco brands. The locknut is located approximately below your exterior front drivers side compartment. It's a little tough to get at but doable. I used a flat metal bar to turn the screw once the nut was loose. When I first got my coach, there was over 1.5 inch play. The adjustment removed most of that. I have about a little less than 1/2 inch play now but that is coming from the two parts of the steering shaft.

Send me a PM if you want more details.
