2017 Alante 26X vibration

hi,
Our Alante vibrates at 60 to 65 mph.
both front tires have been replaced
flat spots n inner tire bead rip. Jayco warranty covered it. ( firestone) also .
I witness the balancer n wheels were good.
rims are good.
I had a truck stop mechanic look at them he said I had a bad bearing on drivers side.
rv has 8500 miles
anyone having same issues🙄

Is the vibration in the steering wheel or elsewhere? Elsewhere usually indicates rear and not front end.

Let's start at the beginning. Have you had it aligned? The chassis comes aligned at the Ford factory but needs to be aligned after the coach is installed on it. Jayco and other manufacturers do not do this and will be paid for by Jayco.

That usually indicates something in the front end as you already know.

Have you asked Jayco to warranty the bad bearings?

If it's a bad wheel bearing will be Ford repair. I know Ford had this problem at one time and replaced the bearings under warranty.
