On my Newmar 35' gasser (ford) if on cruise control
and on a interstate hwy, the tranie would kick down
every time going over a bridge. Just got used to
switching off the cruise and then starting it again
after the bridge. mtc

I just drove my new 2015 3010DS home this weekend from the dealer. About 400 miles.

Overall it ran great. I drove down I-86 in New York and US 15 thru PA. So, there were a lot of long pulls and it ran strong...

I did get shoved around quite a bit but it was very windy...sustained 20-30mph with 40-50 mph gusts. So, I am going to withhold judgment on the handling until I can try some calmer conditions!

I absolutely love the mh other than the handling. So bad that I ordered a safe t plus stabilizer while driving. Went ahead and ordered a 5 star tuner at the same time. So definately looking to enjoy future drives

Kernsstmarys, did the dealer go over the air bags and inflation settings? You might check the air pressure of the bags. If you feel too much sway you want to be around 85 pounds (no higher than 100).

It's a 3171. Airbags are set at 60. Will moving up to 85 make that big of a difference?

Yup. 60 is about the lowest - softest. The ride will be a bit rougher but the coach will be a lot more stable.

I'm going on a short 100-120 mile trip with the kids this weekend and will definately take your advice. The wife will be more than thrilled if that works. The North and South driving has literally been a nightmare. We're setting out for Myrtle Beach end of May,so I've only got a few weekends to figure it out. All help is much appreciated

Also make sure you look on here for the "tighter" alignment specs that were posted. Makes a HUGE difference.
