We had this problem (steering gear mounting bolts) with our 2016 Ventana LE 4040 during 2017-2018 and it took 6 months and 7000 miles before our Newmar Dealer diagnosed it properly. Imagine how it would have been if the bolts had come out while driving or my cost if I replaced the steering tires that they thought might be the cause. Sounds like: If you own a Freightliner chassis you better check the mounting bolts on your steering box.
