passenger side sag disease '16 Adventurer

Seems we caught the dreaded F53 passenger side sag disease on our 38Q 26000 lb 2016 F53. Its down on the right side by about 2-3 inches. I've been reading a lot of the old threads on IRV on the subject but have not kicked up anything in a search here.

I know I'm headed to a shop for the repair but has anyone found Ford to be supportive on repairs under its chassis warranty for this issue? I haven't run across anything on the threads saying Ford has stepped up on this issue?

Haven't done the 4 corner weight thing yet but weigh regularly and I am all but empty and several thousand under GVWR and am under for each axle when loaded out. Yea I know I gotta get the 4 corner weight done but I suspect I'm in really good shape on weight.

Any experiences with Ford helping on this?

You might want to call Winnebago and talk to them. The usual fix for body lean is to shim the coach to bring the low side up. I'm not sure who should do the work - Ford or a Winnebago shop.

Typical winny weight distribution

Not fords problem, poor winny design. Talked to a spring shop and they see this a lot. Shimming doesn't change overloading one side. Adding correct springs to handle the weight will. One shop wanted $2600 to re-spring entire coach. We opted to add one extra leaf spring($600) to passenger rear. Helped a lot, though I'm sure a total respring would have been better. But I'm happy. Talked to a coach owner who shimmed and was sorry as handing got worse.

I've been looking at Super Springs (helper leaf springs), Sumo Springs, or an Air Lift system trying to explore which would provide the best opportunity for leveling (and lifting) and also offer some ride improvement. Frankly the ride is pretty good right now and that would just be icing on the cake if I could get her back leveled up.
