My 02 Itasca U35 on the W22 chassis needs an alignment. It pulls right and the wheel needs about 1 1/2" correction. I paid Earnharts in Mesa a big $$ to correct it in May and it is worse now.

Ideas?

Hey hamguy how was AK?

I would check with the RV Specialists on 10020 E Apache Trail, they are in Apache Junction
480-380-3801

Never heard anything bad about them... But have about Earnhart and La Mesa RV...
On our way to Mesa Dec. 01 for the winter!

Alaska was/is wonderful. The horror stories about road conditions were blown waaaaaaay out of proportion. Don't believe any of the naysayers.

Thanks for the alignment info. We should be back in the valley on wednesday.

LaMesa sends the rig out for alignment work. We had ours checked a few years ago at Charlie Echols in Peoria. They are a WH certified shop.

Echols is about 50 miles from us. Besides, I had a rather sour experience with them 4 years ago. I would not bad mouth them though. Just my bad luck.

Why does one have to go to a WH facility for a front end alignment?

Personally I would have the best qualified Techs/Facility perform the desired work needed to accomplish the task the first time and get R done right!

I suggest that a shop be chosen that an owner feels comfortable with and that they have the best technology where they can give you a before and after report.

Most WCC shops can't do alignments however we do have authorized centers like Redlands and Brazel's that can.

My most recent experience with an owner that followed my suggestion to obtain an FEA is a very happy man today! An excellent FEA can make all the difference in the world toward your driving experience.

Exactly! That's why I asked the question..

Most RV Service Facilities that perform front end alignments have the nessasary experence to follow through and give a report before and after as you stated...
Furthermore just because a facility is WH certified doesn't mean they are the best at what they do, trust me, I filled out a few feedbacks/reports from the Mesa, AZ area.

This forum provides people with feedback and feedback/experence is what helps people like you and me make a better decision. Nothing in life is a one size fits all.
