ODD, check the idler arm (s) for up and down play. That will also cause loose steering and a wandering motor home.
The best way to check if it is the gear worn, or anotther problem, is to have someone else move the wheel back and forth as far as it goes without moving the wheels. Any part that has movement into it, and does not pass it along in kind, needs replaced. A bad tie-rod end will have the linkage move, but it will not move the tire/wheel assembly. Your front wheel bearings could be loose. Jack up the front end and grab the top and bottom of the tire. try to wiggle it back and forth. If it moves, the bearings will have to be adjusted or replaced. You could also have bad ball joints. The test for them is a little more involved, so I won't go into it here. If all else fails, you can take it to a shop that aligns trucks and motorhomes, and ask them for a grocery list, then take the coach back home and replace the items on the list at your leisure.
Now that I've rambled on about all the bad things it could be, check the tire pressure in the rear, a low rear tire can cause the front to wander.
