Add ons

The trac bar is Blue Ox. The steering stabelizer is Safe T Steer. I do not recall prices but I did find better prices searching the internet. The Centramatics I found a bit cheaper also doing a search. Centramatics eliminated all the vibration and rattles in the front dash. They are worth the price, tires and wheels are balanced constantly above around 28 mph. Safe T Steer lessened the wander, help with cross winds, and according to their literature help control if a front tire blow out occurs. The rear axle trac lock eliminated the side push on passing or being passed by large trucks by 90%+. I can understand the frustration of anybody that goes from their family sedan to this short wheel base coach. It is a entirely different experience and all these add ons should be standard equipment. I like it because I am tired or driving or pulling extra large and long vehicles. We just travel occasionally and not too far from home base. It is like a sport car for me. Good luck and safe travels. Hope I've helped a little bit.

I can relate having had a 36' Tiffin class A and 30+' class C. Trac bar and steering stabilizer are pretty much a necessary add on with any gas chassis.

Thank you. You did help some, but I agree that this should be standard. We has two Itasca sunrises from 2003 to 2014 and absolutely no problems! If I need to spend out of pocket I'm not going to be happy.

Not necessarily, our Itasca 38ftr never gave use any issues as those we are having now. Thanks for the input, greatly appreciated.

Agreed. Our 15 31ul I have installed rear track bar big difference. Centramatic wheel balancers rear. And airlift wireless rear airbags to overcome the sag when full fuel and water. I've drug the rear a couple times before that.

Just thinking out loud here. I bought tires for my TV last year and to make a very long story very short, two of the tires could not be balanced because they were made so out of round resulting in a bounce that could not be fixed. The tire manufacturer and dealer both "blew me off" and thought I was crazy. I purchased a second full set of tires (on my own dime) and now the TV runs perfectly. Anyone wanna buy 4 useless General Tires?

Please, lets not trash school bus handling and ride. It's far superior to our Precept 31 UL on the Ford chassis. I KID YOU NOT!!!! School buses track straight, no bobbing, weaving or lunging into oncoming traffic like the Ford chassis the Precept sits on.
The short wheelbase, long over hang over the rear wheels is part of the problem of why this thing can't/won't track straight especially in wind or road dips etc.
We've had ours aligned and its apparent some serious money is needed to give this beast some road manners.
Good luck with yours!
