Thank you to all the great comments and suggestions. Finding a Ford dealer that has a lift in their shop large enough for an RV is difficult. I finally found one, almost 100 miles from where I live and have made an appointment.


Shops that do truck wheel alignment are also possibilities. The dealer most likely will blame it on the rv builder and the rv builder on the chassis builder. Welcome to the life of the rv'er.

Good luck getting it fixed.
If you have more detail on the noise like when it started, what it sounds like, if it’s present when coasting or in neutral, worse when accelerating or going uphill.
You said it’s mostly a noise but common issue would be an out of balance tire. It’s one of the few vibrations or issues that are speed sensitive only.

" It’s one of the few vibrations or issues that are speed sensitive only. "

Bearings are speed sensitive, bushings are speed sensitive and unbalanced or mis-balanced drive trains are speed sensitive. Rear end gears are speed sensitive, shall I continue.......
