I Lean to the Left

I recently purchased a used 2007 Jayco Greyhawk (actually a 2008 floorplan). The rig only has about 10,000 miles on it, so it hasn't been driven to death. The problem is that after the purchase and driving it home and onto a level driveway, we noticed that it has a definate lean to the left. We used our leveling blocks to attempt to bring it level and had to raise it about 6 inches on the left side. We took it to a local RV dealer who put it up on the lift and indicated that they could not find anything out of place or broken. They felt it was a design flaw, as the gen, furnace, waterheater, the kitchen and the bath are all on the left side. We asked about the air springs and they indicated that they would likely correct the problem. After installing these with minimum air pressure on the right and maximum pressure on the left, we still have the problem. I am surprised that this coach would lean this far to one side. Anyone know of any other Greyhawk owners who have this problem or might have some input on the problem? Could the dealer who looked at it have missed something?

Hello and welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Congratulations on your Jayco motorhome. If the dealer cannot explain why the coach is leaning, you need to contact Jayco and ask if they can refer you to a specialist in this area. Have all the pertinent information of the coach including, mileage and weights of four corners of the coach. You could also take some photos of it on level ground. Good luck and keep us posted.

Our second motorhome had a lean that I thought was a broken spring. I went to a spring & axle place that serves big trucks. They didn't find a broken spring, but fixed the problem by inserting a spacer. Leveled us up and checked alignment for around a hundred dollars. Might be worth a try, good luck, Harvey

On my 2000 MH the rear swaybar was bent and when I tried to level it the whole rear of the MH would raise up. It only took a 1" shim under the swaybar bracket to correct it.
