I have a 1995 Pace Arrow Coronado. I just had the center support bearings on the driveshaft replaced and since getting it back, it has a bad vibration/shake. It is a three piece driveshaft and I thought that on the center piece, the yoke was front-facing the rv. Now it is rear-facing. I've looked everywhere for a drawing of the drive shaft and can't find one. Am I remembering it incorrectly or was it installed incorrectly? Could this be the possible cause of the vibration?? Thanks for the help.

Take it back and tell them what your complaint is.They should have no problem correcting this.They will have to drop the drive shafts and reassemble the splines so that the yokes are in the same plane.

Thanks for your response. I kind of figured that I was going to have to go back again tomorrow.

If they didn't put the drive shaft together the way it came apart it will be out of balance. the ujoints have to be in time. If they don't know what that means you went to the wrong place.

The service manual specifically states the the drive shafts should be scribed prior to removal to ensure that they are aligned correctly on reinstall. What a coincidence that I just read that last night.
