MorRyde IS Alignment

We had the MorRyde IS system installed July 2021 on our 2019 Beacon. After the installation, we put approx. 9,000 miles on the RV going thru pretty much every western state and every mountain range...Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, then returning home to Virginia. I noticed some tire wear on one tire so I took the RV in for an alignment at a local heavy duty truck alignment shop. I got everything aligned last week just in time for our trip out west starting next week. Unfortunately, the shop is closing in January. I cannot find another shop in the area that can do the alignment. We are now planning a trip to Alaska in 2024. I've heard plenty of stories about the roads and figured I'd need to have an alignment again after Alaska. I talked to several alignment shops in Prince George, BC. There are several that can do axle and spring type alignments but none that can do the MorRyde Torsion suspension system. One shop owner said there was a shop in Vancouver that could do it. I contacted several of them and got the same answer. Axle and spring alignments but not MorRyde systems. I have the list of shops provided by MorRyde but have not found it to be very useful. I am hoping that others on this forum might know shops in British Columbia area that can do an alignment on my RV. If not in Canada, as soon across the border as possible.

Follow up. Incidentally, the shop owner in Prince George, BC laughed when I told him that I figured I would need an alignment after Alaska. He said a lot of people come back needing them. He said the axle / spring systems really take a beating (bent axles, etc) and that my torsion suspension system will do much better up there than the axle systems. That made me feel good. Now I just have to find a shop that can get it done. Last resort is I can always go back through Elkhart, IN.

I wouldn’t spend too much time dwelling on it . Just watch who is ahead of u when they fly thru the air that is you signal to slow down . Most have crappy springs no shocks and zero cross stabilizers . Speaking of most 5th wheels . Good luck!

From what I've heard, there are a lot of roads where there isn't a car ahead of you.

In my research on this subject, I found a shop in Redding, CA https://allwheelinc.com/
However, I had mine done at a shop in San Diego, and they did a great job. Aligned all four wheels for about $550.
MorRyde also has a list of shops that do the alignment, but as you call them you may find out that some don't. But it's a place to start.

Ouch!!! I just had mine done for $220. They only had to adjust two of the four however. And there is the California factor. Everything is bigger in Texas and everything cost more in California.

They aligned all four of mine, and the alignment was pretty bad, but it was also cheaper than many other places that I checked. Even a couple in AZ.

A lot of shops don't are familiar with IS alignment.Even the shop Moryde list are not good.I been done that.The only good alignment will be in Indiana or Oregon at the manufactures.

We had ours aligned in Chanute, KS at the local Ford dealer that had a trailer shop in the back. Three axles were about $600, two years ago. It took them about 3 hours to do this.

I disagree on that. The shop I just had my alignment done was probably better than MorRyde.

When I had IS installed in Sept. 2018 on our Bighorn, there were a lot of DRVs in the lot. DRV installs the IS themself but brings it to MorRyde to have it aligned. Anyhow, went to Alaska in 2019 and still haven’t had the MorRyde IS aligned since it was installed.

I imagine DRV installs the IS system because their units are too heavy for axles and leaf springs. I expect MorRyde gives DRV a very nice deal on the alignments.

If MorRyde is giving DRV a "deal", then it shows in the end product. My alignment was so bad, from the factory, that it tore up a $400 tire in less than 6k miles.
