Ride height needs to adjusted. Not that difficult a job.

S Y,


Welcome to iRV2.


You need to have RIDE HEIGHT checked and adjusted.


That far out can torque the chassis.


You will have three ride height valves.


Get the specs for your chassis and get it back to specs.


Could be something as simple as the link coming off the ride height valve.

First off, Welcome to iRV2!

There should be a rod attached to the valve that allows adjustments. Just be very careful as working with the valve adjustments can cause the front end to drop suddenly if the rod slips.

From what you said, I assume you have the singlr valve on the front bags and individual valves on the rear bags. Get under the rear axle around where the bags and shocks are, the adjustment valves will be right in that area.

We need to start over.

Is your coach parked on a level surface that includes all the tires? If not, it can appear the front is a few inches off due to the unlevel surface you may be parked on.

You said you replaced the front valve. Why?
I assumed you adjusted the front ride height (while parked on a level surface) along with the front valve replacement. That's where you adjust the front ride height. You don't adjust the front height from the rear axle location.

Side to side tilt is usually controlled by (one or both) the rear valves and they are located at the rear axle.

I'm not sure about his 2003, but for years American Coach specified that their chassis have two ride height valves up front and one in the rear. The opposite of most other rigs.

2002-2003 have one up front attached to the sway bar and 2 at the rear.

OP please be careful as the rear valves are in a tight place between the tires and frame,

Air ride

Yes I am parked on a level pad and I changed the front leveling valve because I thought it had separate lines going to each front airbag when the bags are inflated the right side bag is extended as far as it can go the left side is about in the middle where it should be for some reason I feel there is too much pressure going to the right side front however the rear seems to be the same on each side trying to figure out how to correct that any input on this will be greatly appreciate there is only one Airline going to the right side bag no leveling valve on the right side the chassis is Spartan

That is also true for Spartan MM chassis.

What year? My 2002 AT on Spartan MM chassis has 1 in front and 2 in the rear as mentioned above. 2002 and 2003 ACís are very similar at least in appearance.
