You Know what a Combat Controller Calls An Aircraft Carrier?

I have a 2012 390bh 60 with aluminum rims and 255 tires. Do I have a problem that needs to be dealt with?

There are multiple threads discussing this. Do a quick search and you will see the process to check and see if you have an issue. First thing is to get it weighed (CAT scale at a truck stop is easy).

Get your coach weighed front axle and rear axle. Full fuel, and propane, empty fresh, gray and black water tanks and nothing in the coach. Report back to us. Some 390 bh units had a problem but not all.

May I add that you just don't have to be over-weight to have a problem. After all the motorhome should carry passengers, belongings and some cargo. I advise empty weight weighing be done with 1/2 tank of fresh water and two passengers. This has be okayed by Randy and is only realistic.

I believe that any 40 ft.Berkshire with tile floors and a 10,410 lb front axle, should get the upgrade, The front axle is the steer axle and FR is most concerned about it, as you should.

Thank you ... my MH is now put away for the winter and the snow is starting to fly. Will not be taking it out until spring.

My unit has all of the upgrades including tile floor and wash/dryer.

Will follow the instructions above.

If it turns out that there is a problem ... is FR footing the bill to correct the problem?

If so ... what is the process
