Steering Issues

I just completed a 1500 mile trip with my 2013 class C 23' on Ford E350 chassis. This is my first MH so I am learning the ropes. One question I have: is it normal to have to constantly impute steering corrections? Even on straight aways I had to make continuous minor steering corrections.

I would say no... I'd start by having the alignment checked and pay attention to the caster value - higher = more stable.

Other than normal conditions, how does it do in the wind or when being passed by larger vehicles?

Also get the unit weighed and adjust tire pressures if necessary. Overinflation can impact handling.

I would say NO! Our old 1993 Ford Class-C does not need constant small steering corrections. It sounds like something needs a minor adjustment.

Here is a link to a thread describing my experience with +caster on an E450.
E350/E450 Handling Problems are caused by too little + CASTER
