Play in steering wheel-new Dually

Would greatly appreciate some of y'all's expertise: brand new Dually, 320 miles currently. Doesn't pull to one side or other so guessing alignment is good but steering wheel just doesn't seem as tight as previous 6.7s. Seems a bit "soft" with a bit of play in steering wheel which also doesn't seem dead centered. Dealer said alignment good but willing to look at it again.

Tires are inflated to suggestions on door pillar. Would appreciate any insight/what it could be/same experiences.
Thanks.
TCM

I have the same issue with my 2014, although my truck is lifted. If I'm on a road with a slight slope for drainage, I have to hold my wheel to the left ever so slightly, not even enough to change the degrees in the dash. On the highway that is flatter, my steering wheel stays perfectly straight.

My '14 F350 DRW is the same, soft like an '70/80's truck without speed sensitive steering, but it does steer straight as an arrow. The '13 F250 I had felt tight like my Mustang which had electric power steering.

i would make sure the sector shaft is turning with the input shaft

there will be a little play but if the steering wheel turns to much before you see the pitman arm move you need to address that issue

Thanks. I drove two other similarly equipped Duallies as did the shop foremen at two dealers in the last week and all feel similar. Thanks again for replying on this thread.
