2002 Country Coach ride height adjustment

Can anyone tell me how to do a ride height adjustment procedure? My driver side rear tire is 2 inches higher than the passenger side rear tire. I brought it to a service center and they tried adjusting it and after I got it home it still looked out of adjustment. I think I might just get under the coach and perform it myself if it's an easy task.

I don't know how to attach a document. But, IM me and I will email it to you. I just went through this. I replace the three valves and fixed a bunch of leaks. The coach measured 2" shorter on the DS. With the coach on a rack, you could clearly see a twist in the fame. With minor adjustments the coach rides flat. The document I will send shows that you measure at the frame.

The front is most important as it should be within 1/16 of each side. This is for proper handling, steering, and sway control.
The rear may be out some to achieve this but 2” seems excessive. Measure your front shocks bolts to determine what adjustments are needed in the rear.
Your coach has 2 valves in the rear, and only one in the front. Rear valves controls side to side balance for both the front and rear.
The one valve in front keeps the coach level front to back.

Does the coach have to be running to make the rear adjustments?

I went through all of this and replaced all three valves together, that is what is recommended.

When working under the coach drive up on 6x6 wooden blocks. This will give you clearance in case the coach drops air in the suspension. If it drops on plain ground it could crush you. Jack stands aren't strong enough as these coaches are heavy. Use proper safety measures please. I have to say that.

I am enclosing the guide I found online and I have used it to replace my valves and set correct ride height. I also had a tech align coach and check my work and sent them this info. Hope I can attach it correctly.

Be safe and good luck, it's not rocket science but a PIA.

FUnjnt: Very helpful thanks for posting the pdf. I've seen this information previously but lost track of it. My rear ride height valves have a tendency to slip over time causing the ride height to increase. Easy to adjust but couldn't remember what height to adjust them to. I have the Ridewell 227 Rear.
