Question Alignment on Tiffin Breeze in Fl.

We have a 2013 Tiffin Breeze 32 footer. I feel it wanders, or is very busy in the steering. I will start with alignment. The tire pressures are ok. original weight said 90-95, raised ti 100 front still nervous to drive.

Does anyone have a good recomendation for an alignment shop in the Ocala/Leesburg area?? Alliance said Tiffin said take it to a Powerglide shop. Their _tiffin _ recomendation was Lazy days, no way, I dont have a month to get a lousy job. Anyway, looking for info.

Thanks, the Muffin Man.

Go to Josams in Orlando. They are the top alignment shop in the country. They are very well versed in motorhomes.

2nd Josam. I have had them do all three motorhomes we have owned. Very professional and not expensive. Call and make an appointment and you won't be there long.

I called them and they couldn't give me a hard price, they said around 300-400.

I didn't like that

I called a authorized Freightliner dealer they said $230, fixed cost.

I would still go with Josam. They are really the best at what they do.

I've seen the same recommendations posted on the tiffinrvnetwork.com website so they sound like the place you want to go. Freightliner may do it for you but you don't have a Freightliner chassis so the other recommendations might be the better choice.

BTW, the Breeze is pretty sensitive to tire inflation and yours are over inflated. Get yourself to a truck scale and get weighed and then adjust the pressures per the tire charts. I think you will find that the fronts will be more in the neighborhood of 80-85 psi and the motorhome will drive and handle much better.

Your best source of information is other Breeze owners on the tiffinrvnetwork.com website.

Go to Josams.

They didn't quote an exact price because they are so many chassis out there it depends on which model you have and how many man hours it takes to fix it. If you don't care how it drives, take it to the cheapest thing you find!

Not the point it was like giving them a blank check, I'd rather go to gaffney.

Isn't your signature coach on a Roadmaster chassis?

Talking

I have not changed my equipment list, I forgot. We had a 43 foot Monaco Camalot, but for health reasons, let it go. Told BH, if we are to continue RVing, find a rig you (BH) can drive , at least half the time, maybe more. She can handle the 32 Breeze, with no problem, so we got one. I would like the steering to be more stable for her.

What kind of weights and tire pressures are people getting on the 32 Breeze??? Just cirious, I am going to get it reweighed this weekend, the first readings, which I can not find, now seem to high.

Thanks , the Muffin Man.

If yu just need an alignment, most any truck service center can do a decent job for you. If I had a steering or suspension problem, though, I would go to Josams or up to Gafney, SC, for FCCC Factory Service. When I have problems, I always go to the real pros.

In Ocala, my first choice would be Tampa Spring's Ocala location (or SR 40 just west of I75). Raney's Truck Centers also do alignment, but I have no experience with them.
