I'm not up on the tech side of motor home ownership. My fiance and I plan to live in the FR3 after we sell our homes so when you answer, keep it simple please! We took the 31 foot FR3 out for the weekend and I was appalled with the way it leans when turning. It almost reminds me of a cradle, rocking back and forth. Is this normal?

It's normal with the Ford factory settings of the front and rear sway bars. I found that once I performed the CHF (cheap handling fix), most of the rocking was eliminated. There are many posts here on the forum which detail how it's done.

CHF turns a scary driving motor home into a relaxing one handed driving vessel. Very easy to do.
