2021 or 7.3L coach steering shake

I upgraded recently to a 2021 Entegra 31F from my 2016 Jayco 31FS or so I thought.

Well, the new (to me) Entegra has some steering shake. Mostly vertical steering wheel shake. The ride is not great either. On smooth roads below 65mph its ok, though it does bob and weave.

My Entegra (odyssey) didn't come with all the J ride stuff, so stock ford shocks and sway bars, but it does have the hellwig helper springs. I purchased Koni shocks to see if that would make a difference and so far it hasn't done much for the ride.

It almost feels like something is loose, but I can't find anything loose on the coach. Dealers are backed up forever and Ford won't touch it at all.

Oh and if you didn't know Jayco 2 year warranties are non transferrable.

Check wheel balance and tires mounted true on the wheel.

I have a 2019 Odyssey 31L that drove fairly well, but added the Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer and the track bar in the rear. I can drive that bad boy one handed with a truck passing me (although I donít ). Before adding anything, thought, I would try a Ford truck dealer that can check it out (forget the RV dealers as they tend to be swamped right now and it sounds like you need a real truck mechanic). Hopefully they can find and correct. Check with Ford as while the motor home warranty is not transferable, the chassis may well be. Iíd call Ford and give them your VIN and mileage.
