New Sunseeker leaning

Bought my new Sunseeker 2400WS a little over 2 months ago and started travelling. A month or so ago noticed the RV was listing toward the driver's side, and got progressively worse. So much so that it caused sleep difficulties. Being over 600 miles away could not return it to the dealer we bought it from, and local dealers are booked into August. No help from Mercedes who seem to want to pass the blame to Forest River. Looking from the rear the list is very noticeable and distance of bumper to pavement varies by 3 inches from passenger side to Drivers side. Has anybody had a similar problem?

New sunseeker leaning

Have you tried driving up on some blocks to level up your rig. The full wall slide is probably putting a lot of weight out on that side.

Do the 2400 come with rear air bags? IMO: If so the drivers side is empty or cracked. If not then you have a suspension problem.

It does that because of the weight of the slide. The suspension settles. Just drive it up on some short 2x6 pieces of wood on the drivers side or install levelers. I hardly ever park on level ground so I try to position mine to be level after it settles

Sunseeker leaning

The Rv appears to lean a little to the drivers side even when moving on the road. I use levelling blocks whenever I park even on level site.
No reChrisar air bags.

Lot of weight on that slide side. There was a thread on this where some were installing some kind of suspension aid I will try to find the thread.

Found it they are called Sumo Springs. this is of course if it's leaning with the slide in
