Leaning Right -- Tire Pressure??

Hi all,

Just bought our first coach, 2016 38a.... Bought it and headed to Michigan (from AZ). Ended up stopping by Elkhart and spent two days with Dave, Scott, Andy & Bob! I can't speak highly enough of these guys and the pride they take in their work!!!

On to the subject.....while at the plant they 4 point weighed (and realigned) our coach since we had it loaded. I had front tires at 100psi and rears at 95psi per their suggestion. I noticed our coach seems to lean to the right from behind. After looking up the Michelin RV tire inflation chart I need some help.
Should I be running all for points at different pressures?
My RR weight 1,200 lbs more than my LR.
Should I be running my RR at 103psi and my LR at 84psi?
Seems like that would correct the lean to the right?
My LF is 1,150 lbs heavier than my RF so should my RF be at 80psi and LF at 110psi?

Thanks in advance for any and all help/clarification.... I want to keep my family safe!!

Your tire pressure should be set for the heaviest side and same pressure on both sides.

Your leaning is probably because the ride height needs to be set. There is a valve on the left and right side that needs to be adjusted. If you are still in Indiana there is a truck shop that I can recommend. Hill Truck in South Bend. Mine was leaning when new and they replaced both of my valves under warranty.

Thanks Dan.... I'd love to take you up on your truck shop recommendation however we're back in AZ. Is that something I can take to Freightliner for?

Yes, Freightliner is the one that provide the warranty. Hill truck sales was just the Indiana authorized service center.

By the way, before you go to Freightliner you should get familiar with Freightliner custom Chassis. 800 - FTL - HELP. They are the ones that actually authorize the warranty work. I Always talk to Steve.

You may want to go ahead and join the Freightliner custom Chassis club for $15 a year.

PRICELESS INFO Dan!! I'll sign up as soon as I get home and call Steve now! I know they have a big service center here in Tucson, hopefully their reputation is a good as your endorsement of the Phoenix service center!

Dan, When they adjusted your valve, was that a "while you wait" adjustment, or a leave it adjustment? Thanks again!!!

Mine was done while I waited. If the ride height just needs adjusted, it shouldn't take long. Mine actually had to have the valves changed.
