Curves and Winds

Good Mornimg,
We're headed back to Oklahoma from South Dakota. My biggest issue when driving our 364TS Georgetown is the feeling when you take the curve that the rig is going to flipp. Is that a feeling I have to get use too. I slow way down but certain directions of how the curve is graded can be unnerving. Is there something I need to do while driving or add to the suspension. We took a crazy narrow curving road from Custer to Deadwood South Dakota 385 that really tested me and my skills. Thank you for the knowledge and help.

I have improved mine greatly by adding Sumo springs front and rear. They improved all aspects of ride and handling. If you decide to add them call Super Springs the company that makes the Sumo's and they will tell you which model will work best for you and your chassis.

Who did your purchase them through and who installed them. We're so new at this that we don't have good people to depend on other than our dealer we purchased from in the Tulsa area. Thank you.

After talking to the company I ordered the sumos from etrailer.com and install them myself just about any shop could install them.

Well, I read your thread and we could have similar issues. I don't have an issue turning to the right. But I have an issue every time I turn to the left. And if I'm headed west in winds blowing from the south it makes extremely difficult and around roads on hills can become difficult . So when I get back I'll have the dealership look into it. How did you present it to them? Or have you found out further information that you can share. Thank you so much.

My left turns were the bad ones for me to. It was obious when looking at the front of the RV that suspension was either to loaded or to soft on the right side. My theory is that if you already list to the right, a left turn will increase the listing and be felt while a right turn has to overcome the right listing before being felt. It was a strange and scary feeling. Anyway, I told the dealer (with pictures in suport) that my RV was to low on the right side. They validated with forest river and no one argued that it was a normal condition so I was sent to a specialized shop.

Also do a search on this forum about suspension shim and you will find more info that I think are related but a bit older.

Have you checked out the CHF, (cheap handling fix)? It is free and fairly easy to do. Works wonders for the rocking and swaying.
This is assuming of course you have a good front end alignment and your tires are at the correct pressure. My tires were about 20lbs too low when I took delivery.
