Coach leans to left after sitting more than 3-4 days

I have had this problem since day one. My service center here replaced the manifold (per Spartan) and it seemed to be better for a bit, but then it started happening again and I was told this is normal because I should ALWAYS use the jacks if coach is going to be sitting in the same same place for more than 48 hours. That doesn’t seem right to me. I wonder if it’s the new manifold, or a leaky air bag or something else..

No,No Jeff, I can't believe someone told you that it should sit level on its air bags for quite some time! There is bad air leaks ! Make them fix it! Email the photos to Spartan .....and ask them.
Who is the dealer?

You probably have a leaky ride-height valve. Check all valves and hoses with soapy water in a spray bottle.


Jacks aren't required if you are on level ground. I use my jacks about twice a year. However, mine is usually dumped (aired down) when parked.

My experience with the dealer I bought from is that they will say anything to keep from fixing things if they can get away with it.

I have the same issue on my 18 DS. Some in here said it’s “normal”. I would disagree. I have yet to take it up w spartan via phone or visit a service center yet. But it def doesn’t seem right.

I have same problem. 2 different Spartan people said it's normal to do that in storage because of unevenly distributed weight.

That would be one hell of a lot of unevenly distributed weight. Wow! They must think everyone is an idiot.!

My right front leans after 4 or 5 days. I called Spartan and they said if it lasts 2 days it is within spec. It is not with in my spec so I will find it and fix.
