Good Morning. I have posted a couple of questions lately since purchasing our motorhome in Sioux Falls and leaving the 5'er as tradebait.
In reference to the steering feeling loose, we took it to the alignment shop and found that it was 3/16 of an inch off. Also, the air pressure in the tires was far to high. The dealer who sold us the tires put 120 psi in all of them. ( 275/7022.5) Michelin. They also installed a Stabilyzer and when we drove it home, it handled sooooo much better. I am running 105 psi in the front now, and 100 in duels.
On the front tv issue, they had used a satelite setup and after tracing the coaxes, it works fine now for us on cable and antenna.
I cannot tell you how much this site has helped, and that it is one of the first sites I visit in the morning after signing on.
Thanks to all, and see you down the road hopefullly. PS, prior to taking the coach to the alignment shop, we had each wheel weighed at the truck stop on the cat scale. I was happy that we are so under maximum ratings, good to know.

Glad to hear that everything seems to be coming together for you! Isn't it a pleasure to drink a cup of coffee in the AM while perusing the board..and learning stuff at the same time!

PS...

Betty read your reply and immediately went to look for something else to put into the coach.
I saw your website, it is nice.

There isn't much you can do about it but 120 psi may well be above the maximum pressure for your tires. If so then possible future problems could arise. I hope it isn't above the max. The risk if it is is hard for me to assess.
