Cheap Handling Fix - CHF

One of the best things you can to improve the handling is the Cheap handling fix on your sway bars. Takes only about 30 minutes and no parts are required. Do it on both front and rear sway bars. Greatly reduces sway in all conditions.

Not familiar with the CHF you are talking about, what does it entail?

Somehow we went from the manual operation of the slideout to Cheap Handling Fix. Anyway to answer HJ's question the CHF is an adjustment done to the sway bars to increase the amount of torsion on them to reduce sway. If you Google it there are many Youtube videos on it.

Sway bar CHF

Sorry this got stuck in my Slide Out post. I should have separated my questions and comments. I have viewed several of the sway bar fixes and will check my unit to see if it has the second set of holes in the sway bars and then try the fix if they are there. I am scheduled to have the additional rear sway bar added at their facility the third week of June, $1100.00 installed. I can still cancel if the fix is a great as they say it is.

On my 2016 Precept UL31, there is a factory front & rear sway bars. Only the front has the extra holes for the adjustment. The factory ford rear sway bat is mounted in front of the axle and a much heavy one is mounted behind the axle. This is the way is was delivered from Jayco. It could be part of the J Ride+ package. Maybe the altante doesn't have this.See attached pics of both rear sway bars. Hope this helps.

I think that's right, the Precept has the extra and heavier rear sway bars - called the J-Ride Plus. I have been under my Alante and I only have one front and one rear sway bar but I haven't looked for the "extra" holes on either. I get it back from the dealer next week and will crawl under and take a look. Thanks!

Dave55, I guess that shows us jayco made a mid year change or something. My 2016 31ul with j ride plus (marketing gimmick) has holes to do the CHF front and rear. My coach was built late 2015.

Interesting. The F53 chassis was built in August 2015 and the coach was built in Oct 2015.

I added Air Lift air bags to the rear and has helped greatly. I have run these on many off my Ford chassis and am very pleased with the results, About $800.00 in parts including the onboard compressor.
