Okay heres the update. After 2 alignments and the safe t bar...love it. Just arrived at myrtle beach(784 miles) and it handled great at 79-75mph. Completely different rig! Also really enjoyed the 5 star tuner through the mountains and defianately recommend

Now another problem. Put the power awning out and it will not retract. No blown fuses,but have one glowing light red. Any help is appreciated

I have a 13 3011DS - it drives a bit like a boat. While I don't experience a lot of sway, what I do have is a certain amount of understeer going into tightish corners. We just did a trip from Canada down into WA and into the Winthrop area. Driving those roads was....miserable.

Having now read this thread, and the others on airbags and alignment, I have a rather simplistic question: I remember my dealer showing me some little white doohickey on the RV and mumbling something unintelligible about air pressure. I'm going to presume that is the controller for the airbags?

If so, how do I regulate pressure in there - use a tire gauge to measure? Supply air with an ordinary tire air pump? Compressor?

And I think now that I've done about 5,000 miles, I'll get the alignment reset to the specs suggested on the forum (thank you!).

Yes, you will need a decent compressor with a good air chuck and a good tire gauge that can read at least up to 100 psi. I set my compressor regulator to the pressure I want the sure bag to be so I don't over inflate - which is easy to do. For me; I find between 75-85 psi works well.

owners of 3010ds and 3011ds how does your rig drive?

The little white doohickeys may be the screw on valve caps for the airbags. Air them up to 10-100 psi. I think most people on this forum keeps them at about 70psi, your preference. Helps with stability and balance. Easy on thr air up. They do not hold much volume.

Walmart has a small tank type 120 volt air compressor for around $50. Does not weigh much and perfect for tires and airbags.

The connectors for the air bags are on each side and marked as such: One in the plumbing compartment (Drivers Side), and the other in the storage compartment near where the water filter and low point drain are located on the passenger side. As Garette said, 70 lbs is a good average. The white thing you reference is probably the connection for cable TV in the plumbing compartment.

As far as the alignment, I had it done including the adjustable bushings and it didn't seem to help a lot, but I only have 1800 miles on my rig. So may try to have it done again after I get to FL when we head south from NH.

Well, I'm more intimidated by this whole motor home thing now. LOL. Good thing I'm researching now, and not learning in the drivers seat!
