Finally pick it up my first RV.

After two attempts, today we close the deal and i drove it back (100 Miles) to my warehouse, so far I'm happy with my first RV, Winnebago Itasca, spirit 31G
Just noticed how bad is when passing by a semi, time to weight, make n aligment and check tire pressure...

First, Congratulations! The weight and tire pressure are cheap adjustments. Do them first. Also I'm going to assume that your fresh water tank was empty when you drove home. I always try to have mine at least 1/3 full for stability and of course drink/bathing etc.. Try those two cheap fixes first and see how it handles then. You can always spend $$$ later if they don't help.

Thanks!

dealer filled up my tanks up to 1/3 and throw a chemical on the toilet when we did the orientation,

Still reading about the handling, will follow up your advice, first weight, tire pressure and alignment, then if need it, sway bars.

I suggest you first learn all about your sewer system. Using black tank incorrectly is the easiest way to get a problem. Always keep the black tank closed in a campground until it's at least half full or more before dumping. Don't leave it open when connected with full hookups. And double check your house connections before dumping. Don't ask me why I mentioned this..........messy story.

What do you mean when you say "double check your house connections before dumping"?

Also, if you have air ride, fill to around 75#s. Order the safe t steer and 5 star tuner. Donít ask me how I know. U wonít regret.

I think he meant hose connection at the valve and sewer .
