Question Allego 30 GA-Difficulty with Keeping it on the Road

We are new to this method of communicating, but we just purchased a new Allego 30GA, and it is a struggle to keep it from drifting off the road to the right. It is on a Ford Chassie. Any thoughts??? They say the alignment and tire pressures are fine.

Drifting ?

Larry-Marcy:
Return the RV and ask them to drive it. Have someone look at all of the parts of the suspension to check for loose joints . Do this while turning the steering wheel back an forth while the wheels are on the ground.
That's what happened to me. The people at Les Schwab found a badly worn bell crank. My .02

Allego 30 GA-Difficulty with Keeping it on the Road

I hope I'm sending this correctly, we have a 2011 allegro 35 qba and when I drove it home I experienced the same feeling. I having a commercial drivers license, driving many different trucks knew what it was. The new coaches are very top heavy . I installed a safety steer stabilizer. This helped a lot. However our coach is a little longer than yours so i went one step further and installed air bags on the rear . This also improved the stability of the coach. I installed it myself so i saved quite a bit in labor charges. I hope this steers you in the right direction . It will make your coach safer to drive. However most quality after market parts can be quite costly so you must choose wisely. I just traded in a coach that had the same exact chassis ,it was 6 inches less in height about the same weight ,it handled very nice didn't have to do any thing to it so it was very confusing to me why my coach handeld this way to ,best of luck to you.

Shadetree,
Would you share a little more information about your airbags, installing them, brand, etc?
We purchased a brand new 2011 Allegro Open Road 34TGA Feb of this year, simply love it and have had no issues. However my husband is interested in the airbags etc....Our Allegro has a Ford Chassis. We had airbags on our two previous Monaco's and like them, so this could be a consideration.
thanks

Congratulations on the new coach. Who are "they" who said that the alignment and tire pressure is correct? If you trust that the alignment is correct, then examine the tire pressure. I would suggest that you load the rig as it would be when traveling, then have it weighed. Then you can use the tire manufacturers load chart to make certain that the tires are inflated correctly. I wouldn't take there word to be correct without doing what you can yourself.

I have a 04 32BA on a Workhorse chassis. Sometimes, the front end can feel a little light and be a struggle to control. I had a front trac bar installed and it, along with proper tire pressure helped.

I would take it to the dealer and have them fix it.
