CHF

Buying a new Class A on the ford 53 chassis. Read a lot about the CHF. My question is will this affect the warranty?

OK, I'll bite. What's a CHF?

OH, OK, I got it now. Cheap Handling Fix. I had a slow moment there...

Yeah, I wanted to know what "CHF" meant in the RV world too. I dealt with it for 30+ years in my career. But, CHF meant a bit different then. "Congestive Heart Failure".

CHF Ford F53 swaybars

Ford technical support just advised me that the swaybar links can be attached to either of the two available holes without any concern or affect on the chassis warranty. The inboard hole location will stiffen the swaybar resistance. The exiting links can be used in either location without modification. This applies to the front and rear bars.
I'm changing mine tommorrow.

There is a mile if threads on this forum on the cheap handling fix - chf. Make the effort to search on this forum. There are comments, instructions and photos - a wealth of info. Virtually all the feedback is positive.
I did mine this Spring, front and back, and it made a big difference with handling. No more having to constantly turn the steering wheel to make corrections.
A far as warranty, fed law requires manufacturers to prove that your mods caused the issue. Ha. If they don't want to honor that how much time/$s are you willing to spend proving the point? In the meantime you are still stuck with your problem. Not suggesting chf is causing a problem!!!
