Did you check or adjust your ride-height controls?

If you have air bag suspension, you have 3 ride height adjustment valves. These valves add and delete air to keep the RV level and at proper ride height. Going around a long curve, the air bags will inflate on the outside side of the curve to level the RV. Usual configuration is 2 valves in back, one in front, but some chassis have then flipped from that.

You'll need to find the specifications for your chassis. With bags inflated, there there will be a measure between the frame and the axle, or specific parts on each. The wrong height is bad for the ride and critical in the rear of a diesel pusher for the alignment of the short drive shaft between the differential and the transmission end.

That's a chassis problem. Which chassis do you have, Freightliner or Spartan?
