Bounder listing ( leaning )

2017 35K Bounder. 19,000 miles. Roadmaster front and rear anti-sway bars plus steering stabilizer added. A few days ago I was following my Bounder and noticed it was listing to the left. Doesn't seem to be a loading issue. I do believe this listing issue is adding to excessive body sway. Anyone here have a similar issue or suggestions on what might be going on here?

If you are sure it is not a weight balance issue it could be rear springs on one side are sagging or broken. I would check that first. If it is just sagging and you don't want to replace the springs I would recommend an air bag suspension kit for the rear. Set it up to fill independently left and right so you can adjust ride height separately (left and right).

Here is a lookup for you to check out: https://www.etrailer.com/susp-2017_F...isibleProducts

And here is a video showing the same issue and they install the Firestone Air Bag System and fix the list/lean:

Good luck!

You have to understand what is lower.

Put your coach on as level of a surface as you can find. Then figure out what is off.

On my 2015 32SA Tiffin was leaning because of broken welds that connected the chassis to the house.

It could be a problem with springs but on a coach that new with that few miles it would be surprising. I'm not sure what else it could be. If you can't figure it out take it to a commercial truck shop that has experience with F53 chassis and they should be able to figure it out.

Thanks, I think your correct. I had one post explain that Ford forgot to place a block on both side resulting in an intolerable lean. Another had a broken weld, and more than one posted that they felt it wasn't too uncommon and the best way to deal with it was thru an air suspension. I have an appointment with a commercial truck facility who have done good work on this coach several times already. I'll post when we find our answer. Thanks Tom

An air suspension sounds like bad idea to me. It's not designed to level the coach and on an f53 It's mostly a kludge.

Hopefully the truck place can give you some good insight on what's going on. You also may want to contact the Rev group service people and see what they say

On my Tiffin that had a lean that was similar age and milage I brought it to the manufacturers service center and they repaired the broken welds and put a 1" shim in my right rear wheel and now life' is good.

Take to a good spring shop.. you most likely don't have tools to repair.. much cheaper to let shop repair.. if you are lucky just need to add a extra leaf.. good luck and keep us posted
