Berk leaning

I have a 2013 390BH-60 that I purchased new in March. Since purchase it has had a significant lean to the passenger side (over 2 inches difference). I bought it from a dealer in Seattle, WA (I live in Mississippi) because I got a great deal.

The local Oasis FRCC service center is stumped. They have tried multiple adjustments, valve replacements, etc but it still leans.

It is leaning so much, that the back mud flap has been rubbed off.

It doesn't matter if it is empty or full.

Any ideas?

Is Oasis FRCC an authorized Frightliner service center? If not recommend taking your Berk to one.

While the Oasis centers are supposed to be experts on motorhome chassis I think I would take the coach to another Freightliner location. This should be a simple adjustment of the height adjuster and problem solved. You may also want to give the guys at 1800 FTL HELP a call. I have found them very helpful over the phone.


Your air bag suspension should straighten the rid out.


2 inches almost sounds like a line is disconnected and one airbag is not inflating. That is why try another shop.

Berk leaning

Is lean on the front and rear axles? I also recommend FL hotline. They were very helpful to me once.

I noticed in your profile your toad is a Wrangler. Is it black?

I'll try another service center and see if they can get it right.

OK thanks, I saw a Berk with a black lifted JKU a few months back heading south on I-59. Just wondering if it was you. Guess not.

I had a similar problem on my 2014 RB. They replace the ride height valves, and worked on it for 3 days. I'm not sure that it's actually right yet, but it does drives like a dream now.

They already replaced the ride height valves.

I'm going to try another service center and see what happens.

Thanks!

Yes.

To get "Oasis" status you must be an authorized Freightliner service center that works on Motorhomes.
