Source Engineering - Ride Enhancement Kit Model 206


Back on October 3rd, 2013, I posted an offer that I received from our long time sponsor Source Engineering, Inc. Here therefore is how all of that worked out. The original post was:


iRV2 member "dengraham" took up the Jim Walls offer from Source Engineering to outfit his "I-Beam" (XC) Freightliner Custom Chassis using the Source Engineering Model 206 REK.

and

"The Results Are In!"

The following is a testimonial from a iRV2 member dengraham who was invited to outfit his motorhome with the Source Engineering, Inc., Ride Enhancement Kit.

What is a REK-206 Kit?
By Dengraham
March 24, 2014

"I had never heard of an REK until December 2013. I quickly learned it was the answer to an issue that I have pondered for a very long time. When I owned a gas Winnebago Suncruiser (in 2005), my motorhome was all over the road. I tried all kinds of things but the only thing that really worked was a track bar. Now, with the bigger and heavier motorhome I have often wondered why there was not a bar for the diesel. I was always told, there is too much force and weight to control but now there is a solution ....
.
Enter The REK-206 KIT from Source Engineering, Inc. It's a Ride Enhancement Kit (REK) for your Freightliner Chassis.
.
This kit has been engineered from the ground up to control all the motions of your motorhome. The kit is designed specifically for FREIGHTLINER XC Chassis with an I-beam front axle for model years 2003 through 2014.
.
The up/down and back/forth swings are all controlled by each part of the kit. You get multiple ride improvement from each component. They work in concert with each other for a ride that can only be described as “riding on glass.” No more wobble, Walmart shake, porpoising, side to side swings, jarring, being pushed by truck wind, or “bangs” when crossing bridges, etc.
.
As far as I know, I may be the only person the new REK installed on their motorhome at this time."
.
