Safari Cascade handling

I have a 2009 Cascade with 7000mi and seem to have a handling problem.
I am continually adjusting the steering wheel to hold a straight line.
Any wind or vechile passing starts a wheel battle.

Any suggestions for a fix?

Before you start spending money on modifications, I would suggest weighing the coach when loaded fro travel and then adjust tire pressures based on the axle loads. The tire manufacturer should have a chart available that will provide the correct tire pressure for the load. Over or under inflation can lead to handling issues.

Next while loaded, get the front end cehcked at a good truck suspension shop.

If this does not help, next issue will be what modifications to try. Depending on the chassis, you may need stiffer anti-roll bars, track bars, panhard bars or HD shocks.

But fiirst get tire pressure correct and the front end checked.

My big brautiful Bounder does that, or rather USED to do that. On my rig and also my buddies (not a Bounder) we found that the steering column outtput shaft basically 'floated' around inside the coupling into the steering box. I cross drilled the shaft assembly and ran 10-32 threads and a nice, strong socket cap screw in there, and it lasted a year before re-tightening was needed. Next time it loosens, I shall go thru the hole with the appropriate drill bit and press a 125 roll pin in place of the screw.
( the drill bit needs to be smaller then 125 due to the natural sloppiness of hand drilling.)
