Great point! You make assumptions being brand new that this would be common practice but my assumptions are quickly fleeting. I will check when I get it back home.

There is a lot of info out there, I run 90lbs all the way around, still tweaking but this changed the handling from my 30lb difference (lowest 70 to highest 100).

On my 31ul I find about a 93psi seems to work well for handling.

Sir, to answer your question regarding rating my ride quality before and after installation of Roadmaster sway bars and steering stabilizer. I would say my ride was a 3 on the 1-10 scale before installation and a 6 or 7 afterwards. Very noticeable for sure.

To clarify a typo from my first reply, my unit is an 2016 Alante 26AY.

We have a '16 Precept 31UL and while you have to understand that any large vehicle isn't going to handle like a car, we wanted better handling so we had the Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer installed and it made a significant improvement. Might want to start with that.

I certainly appreciate the fact that it is not a car. I've driven many large vehicles in my life and am referring to the loss of control you experience in the Alante trying to go north of 50mph. It's going to take money out of my pocket since Jayco isn't fixing the problem I just want to figure out the best single one thing to buy. Thanks for the info on the steering stabilizer many have said this has helped greatly. I appreciate the feedback.

I too added a safe t plus stabilizer to our 31ul, I did it for two reasons.
To add stability and safety should a front tire blow,
to help with overall handling.

I have read many times for handling the rear trac bar is the largest improvement, I personally have no experience with one.

I was not thrilled driving over 60 mph coming home. After increasing tire pressure and adding the safe t plus I now drive 65 without a thought. I sometimes catch myself keeping up with traffic at 70 and a couple, then I slow her back down. My ideal is 63 to 65.

I will also say that having a couple thousand mile experience has also helped a lot!

Thanks Steve. I have heard much of the same also that the overhang or rear of the vehicle is where you start and the steering stabilizer is only for returning your wheels to center and helps with control I the event of a front wheel blow out. Good to hear your experience was a positive one with just the front stabilizer. Thanks for the info.
