Hey all,

Just bought first MH. 2014 Greyhawk 31FS. Pick it up in the morning...had to leave for work that night But fiancee has spent a weekend in it at her aunt's not really using much of the amenities as of yet. Looking around in here have already pick up some good tips and alot of questions answered before I even had a chance to ask. Looking forward for some miles ahead, but will have to wait until next month!

Congratulations on the new Greyhawk and welcome to the forum.

We are noob-friendly, BTW.

Welcome to the Forum and Enjoy your rig. I would highly recommend getting it aligned, properly. the added weight from its birth as a cut away van to a 31fs means that the Caster is off, a lot. The wishy washy feeling of who looked at me sternly and made the rig swerve will be handled by that.

Excellent advice! Handling is a frequent complaint for these types of vehicles. I wonder how many new owners have unnecessary after-market suspension mods added when maybe a good alignment at a good alignment shop would have corrected the problem.

I've always assumed (dang, I hate that... and this is the second time today ) the company doing the mods to the cutaway would realign it. Bad assumption on my part.

Tire pressures and alignment should be at the top of the list for the owner of any new vehicle like these.
