degree of wheel cut

I am trying to find out the degree of wheel cut on a 2015 Sunseeker 3010DS with a Ford Chassis. Forest River said to contact Ford which I tried to do but couldn't get their customer service number to work. I thought perhaps someone on the forum might know the answer.

If you look for how to compute turning radius you will find this formal, it will allow you find your degree of angle. Should also be in your owners manual what your turn radius is and by reverse calculation you can find it.
sin
a = wR .......so
R = w sin a
also
tan a = wr ....so
r = w tan a

A bit new here, please explain what "wheel cut" is and what its importance is.

I think he is talking about how far the front tires angle from frame center or straight forward to full right and left.

Thanks but I still don't understand. Is that a "real" formula or....

Yes, you can Google "how to compute turning radius" and find it. The math part is an slandered algebra formal used to find radius.

I watched a video on UTube called "New RV Drivers Confidence Course" put out by Lazy Days RVS; and the video shows how to use the wheel cut degree to make turns. It seems to work with our RV but I don't know if the information is valid when towing a car.
