I don't bother with the chassis batteries unless I know it is going to be more than two weeks that I won't run it.

Question , The dealer put 110 psi in the front and 100 psi in the rear dual's,
Since coach is brand new I have not loaded it or weighed it yet but from what I have read it seem's like to much psi in the front ?
If I lower the front psi will it not sway as much when truck are passing and strong wind ?

Thank's
mike

If you change the pressure the coach will handle 100% different. I've never weighed mine but I know that the 22.5 tires can handle and be safe at much less pressure. I tested mine at several different pressures. Finally settled on 95 # front and 90 # rears. Mine at those pressure no longer darts around like it did at the 110 #. I have read here that others on have weighed theirs and are running about the same as mine. I will be as light as anyone here. We don't carry anything we don't use. I probably could crawl thru our pass thru bay with no more than it has in it (Well maybe if I wasn't an old man. Ha)

Had ours weighed at Freightliner. Techs set pressure at 90 psi front, 95 psi rear.
Drove so much better.

Just curious --when you had the coach weighed at Freightliner what kind of tank levels and cargo did you have? And was the weigh with passengers ?

Thanks !

Sounds like the problem I had with my 33.2, posted how the tech from Thor had me get it back in a few pages back.

So got the rig back from the shop, will detail the fixes when I get back to a computer. 2000 plus miles and about to hit Yellowstone tomorrow with no slide issues (not just knocking on wood but beating my head on it). Just had to say after leaving Virginia we pulled into a rest stop in PA and pulled right next to another 33.2, great guy. Then today on my way to Cody Wyoming we passed another palazzo going in the other direction with the same paint, towing a wrangler with bikes on the back of the jeep, could have been our twin since that is exactly how we are hooked up.

Lovin the rig even through the bighorn mountains with up to 10 percent grades

Yes, we had a similar problem in Middleton, OR. It must be an Oregon thing When I tried to bring the slide in, the left side (facing the slide from the inside) would come in only about 3 or 4 inches while the right side would continue inward about 2 or 3 more inches. I noticed that the bottom of the left side was in further than the top. The slide would stop in that position. We were able to extend the slide out again but each time we tried to retract it, the same "off kilter" situation occurred.

It took me about an hour to finally get the slide back in. I kept the bottom from moving by pushing my foot against it while pulling on the top of the slide with both hands. This was done from the inside of the MH while I had my wife operating the switch.

After returning home, I took the MH to CW along with a list of 12+ other item that needed warranty work. That was more than 3 weeks ago. For some reason (unknown to me) CW has not gotten any repair parts yet and yesterday I retrieved my MH and brought it home. I told them to call me when they get the parts and have the time to do the repairs.

Thanks! We have an identical coach and was curious about the load. Our tire pressures currently are a bit higher than the 90/95 so it looks like we could lower ours to your numbers and be okay.
