I wanted to get some input regarding this product: STEER SAFE STEERING STABILIZER. I would like to get it because i really hate when I'm sucked in when those big rigs come by and or if I get a blow out it will keep me straight. I read a lot of positive reviews on it that people had no regrets getting it. I just put new bushings, new monroe shocks all around, new steering stabilizer and i'm getting new air bags and coils in the front this coming Tuesday.
Let me know what you think. Thank You!

Any one Having Problems with rattling?

I just put one on my 08 HR. I got tired of constantly adjusting the steering wheel to stay in the lane and around corners. I installed it myself and made the necessary adjustments. It has helped get rid of about 90% of the drift that i was having before. I am having to learn that i don't need to keep correcting. That is a hard one to unlearn. Maybe after i get used to not having to correct, i will find that it has taken care of 95% of the problem. I am very happy with the system and the people at the factory were very happy to answer any questions and talk me through the installation. I have not yet been in a strong cross wind with the system, but it has to be better than it was before and any improvement will be welcome. I was concerned about the price, but after using it i feel it is well worth the price and effort to install it.

The past owner said Steer Safe was the best $350 he spend on our 1992 P30 chassis the 10 years that he owned it. It handles like a dream is all I know.

I had one on a previous coach and loved it. It also doesn't have a shock type damper to wear out like most steering stabilizers.

A loose, relaxed grip on the wheel and focus your attention further ahead, down the road. This will go a long way toward helping you cure the over-correction syndrome.

Great product. I was like you when I first purchased my MH. After my first test drive, six years ago, I installed Steer Safe. It removed the steering wander. They also claim that in case of a tire blowout on the steering tires, that it will help steer straight and you may not lose control. Good luck ..............

My steer safe was the best thing I ever bought would not be without it. Amazing difference.

OVER CORRECTION IS CAUSED BY THE AXLE MOVING SIDE TO SIDE. If you want to fix that problem, prevent the axle from moving side to side - ie trac bar.

What happens is the leaf springs twist, allowing side movement of the axle. So when you turn, the coach doesn't move, only the axle does - so you turn a little more, but by then the coach catches up to the axle, so you didn't need to turn so far - ie over correcting.

I would also suggest that by the age of your coach, you should be inspecting A-frame bushings and other front end parts for excessive play. Word is that P30 series chassis like a ton of caster as well.
