Funny you should ask - Seems weird at higher speeds. Still thinking it may be just me. But I have read where folks are adding steering stabilizers and what not to help. Too soon for me as I haven't put enough miles(barely a couple hundred or so) on it yet.

Just seems that I recall having to chase the steering going down the road. We are taking a quick trip to Galveston this weekend. All 2 lane roads and less than interstate speeds will be experienced. Still interesting to see if it is in my head or for real.

Oh yea...I did find the rear tires about 15-20ish low from recommendations. I corrected too - so then there is that.

We have a new 2014 Four Winds 31A (Bunkhouse model) on a 2013 Ford E450 chassis. After turning left or right the steering wheel does not come back to center. We have to turn the wheel about 1/4 to 1/3 of a turn to go straight again. We have had the front end alignment checked with 1/8 toe, +4.XX caster (both L & R). We have had unit weight checked finding the front to be 4340#, rear 9200# and total 13540#. (Front GAWR 5000#, Rear GAWR 9600#, GVWR 14500#). We have LT225/75R-16 by Michelin tires and the pressures have been checked and rechecked and set based on the unit weight per Michelin. Have added 1" blocks under the rear springs that were not install when chassis was modified and new alignment. Also had the unit weight check to see how much weight was added to the front axle (40# added). After the new alignment: Right side: Caster/Camber 4.6 & 89.8, Left side: Caster/Camber 4.7 & 89.7 with Toe: 1/16. Ford dealership tried to adjust the gear box which did not help. Removed and replaced Steering Gear, filled with fluid. Inspected all front end components and P/S lines, No problems found. They have replaced the Power Steering Pump and still no change.
