I did my front mod and had the alignment done, toed in slightly, and what a difference!! Nothing else needed. However, I did the rear six or eight months later, not sure it helped any more, but it didn't hurt. My coach now handles and tracks much better, can use one hand on long straightaways when it is safe. Not before.

Happy Trails, Forrest

Agreed. There was a lot of discussion in December about this, including pictures and info that Ford would not void the warranty if the mod was done. I have a 337 and there is virtually no sway even when passing trucks and driving mountain roads

k3wtf did you have a front end alignment?
MOST new Georgetowns need one, ours was SO BAD the tires were showing signs of sever wear at 6K miles.

Forest River will pay BUT you have to ask.

k3wtf start with your dealer.

I did a search in the Georgetown sub forum for "alignment" and found several threads, here's a good one.

Front end alignment warrantied?

Well we went out on our first real camp out. Kwikiee step broke a Rivit or something. Facing steps left support bolt or Rivit broke. Black water flush won't accept water on the fresh fill I filled the tank 2/3 and water kept running out of fill port. Came home and tried the CHF and bottle jack slipped almost got me. Could not get arm over leaf spring and then just could not get arm attached in rear hole. Leaving for fla on Friday pulling cargo trailer with motorcycles. Oh well.

“Could not get arm over leaf spring and then just could not get arm attached in rear hole.”
“arm over leaf spring” what arm over the spring???

Post #28 by GT4six in this thread has a link to a web site with some excellent pictures, front and rear.
CHF question

Most people don’t have to use a jack you just loosen the bolts and wiggle them out of the sway bar, do both sides at the same time.
Then lift one side and install the bolt (very easy) the other side will be a little harder to stab the bolt but is still VERY easy.

Do you need help with the Kwikee steps or the CHF?
