WOW! Amazing the flex is causing that kind of damage! So what you're saying is if we do the CHF, it minimizes the probability of "Side Wall Failure" or does it eliminate this from happening.

Second question - By doing the CHF, are there any concerns with the suspension? I currently have a noise in my suspension or steering when pulling into a gas station at very slow speed turning wheel left. I get a thumping noise and it feels like the steering wheel shifts.

I only have 2600 miles on our coach.

Thanks for the information...

Sidewall failure also on older Mirada (not sure about new ones)

The failure is similar to that of the Georgetown. The entire front sidewall literally breaks away from the frame as the screws that secure the sidewall to the floor fall out.

The inspection and repair on the Mirada is a lot easier to do than the Georgetown

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
