Very interesting. Ours is also a 2008 chassis as far as I can tell. Must be your floorplan was one they didn't add shims too. Then again I would be curious to see if others with the 350ts do or do not have the shims.

Our 2009 bodies are pretty different. You seem to have the 2008 body style while mine has the newer one. Not sure of the actual build date but it was no later than June 09. Maybe the addition of shims was removed during the changeover as well. Has any 2009-later with the new body been found to have them yet?

Ours was somewhere around August of 08' and they call it an '09. Ours would have been one of the very last with the older front and rear caps and styling. Don't know if any of the newer ones out there had the issue, obviously yours didn't and hopefully others will be in the same boat with you on that.

I'm dropping off mine today after work to have the shim removed and the front end checked. It will be ready for pick up by the end of tomorrow.

our 09 370TS leans to pass. side

Glad I went thru the georgetown forums. Found the problem with leaning to passenger side. I noticed our 370TS leaning as well just after buying it. My dealer tech said most of weight is on passenger side so I figured he new what he was talking about. We are second owners and our coach has 23000 miles. Looks and runs fine so far. Do notice the list to passenger side, thought we were going over in a crosswind on our first trip out ! Anyway thanks everyone for info on shims, mine does have a shim on left rear. The coach is and 08 Ford built in spring of 08 and sold in May of 08. Will attempt to get help from FR today. Have talked to a Mike just before buying our unit and he seemed very helpful. Thanks again everyone.

I'm taking mine back to the place that removed the shim on Friday morning. They printed on the invoice that they want me to bring it back after adding at least 1000 miles so they could check the torque on the U-Bolts. No Charge so I'll stop in on my way to the KOA in Twin Grove PA.

Thanks Charlie, I left message this morning at FR warranty. Have not heard back yet. We have purchased a 2002 liberty and are getting everything hooked up next week plus some other small issues taken care of. Our son lives in Winchester, VA and will be out there in Aug and Sept. Maybe our paths will cross ? Hopefully this shim issue will not cost us. Did they replace your u-bolts as well ? Have a great day ! Driver

No they just loosen them enough to lift the body and slide the shim out, sure is a heavy little bugger, I'd use it as the Ultimate Paper-Weight, but I'm afraid I'd dislocate my shoulder by moving it I do believe they cut off the ends to match the opposite side though. I can see that a torch has been used on the ends.
I've dealt with the Store Manager of the Winchester Camping World, Tom Egan, really great response to a problem I had from the old Manassas VA. store with my Inverter installation.
