RV lists to one Side

Hello All,

I was driving my RV back home and my son who was driving behind me noticed it was listing to the left side. When examining the RV after we stopped I notice that the clearance between the tire and rim on the left side was about 3 inches but it was about 6 inch on the right side.

Is this a suspension issue? do we have springs or air bag suspension in our RV's?

We had a similar issue. The springs were bend upwards and noticeable listing to one side. We had the extended warranty and after a couple of back and forth between our dealer and FR the axles, springs, etc. were replaced. In addition to sagging springs the camber was gone in our axles.

plenty of threads about this out there, my guess is if you look under the rear of your MH, you will have a 2 or 3 inch spacer between the spring and the frame on one side....mine is on the drivers side causing it to list to the right front

Is it safe to drive? I'm not planning on going anywhere with it other than a repair place that is about 30 miles away.

I will post pictures tomorrow as it's in storage and the gates are locked.

I have an extended warranty so I hope it's covered.

It sounds like you may have a few broken leaf springs segments.
If you have the extended warranty it still will need to go to Ford for repairs not an RV dealer. This is an issue with the bare chassis.
