Steering Fixed (I think)
So now totally fed up with the crap service that Spartan provide we have decided to drive the Rv to an alignment specialist in Columbus in Missouri. We were sceptical to say the least as the RV has been at the manufacture for a month so what could this guy do that Spartan couldn’t?
When we arrived we were surprised to see that Spartan had actually sent the dealer a new steering box for us, just in case we needed one (they were supposed to fit this when they had the RV for a month!.
So the first thing we were told was “you will not need a new steering box” they then proceeded to carry out a 3-axel alignment. We were informed that the rear two axels were actually trying to steer the rear of the RV to the left making the front want to keep going to the right, so hence the constant correction required on the steering (see saw action
So after they carried out the CORRECT alignment the coach was road tested and it drove perfectly straight down the interstate without the need for constant corrections. So I think they have at last solved the steering problem. The reason I’m keeping this vague is because the day we left the alignment company we were driving in a very strong crosswind so it’s a little too early to say.
