Writing and proof reading technical documents is not an easy job especially when you have illustrations with tags on them. It's REAL easy to over look something like that. You can proof read it 6 or 8 times and still miss something. Been there, done that.

Thanks everyone!

I spent some time readjusting everything but at the end of the day the cylinder is bowed and needs to be replaced.

Looking back I think it has been since we bought the coach back (private sale) in November. I have consistently heard the thread rubbing but I just wasn't smart enough to pick up on it.

I don't ever remember noticing it being that bad though.

I just can't believe the shop "readjusted" it and considered it fixed. You would think they would have noticed something that obvious and would have recommended replacing it.

Only proves that if you want something done right; you have to do it yourself.

Thanks again!

livingouradventure, you don't have to replace the cylinder, you can remove it or have it removed and take it to a hyd. cyl shop and have them straighten it. They do it all the time and have the tools, expertise to do it.
