Fine Tuning my suspension
I have a 2009 Safari Simba, 33SDD (34ft), Ford F22 chassis, 22.5 tires, v10 that I purchased new in February 2011. After my first road trip, I knew that I needed some suspension upgrades to improve the harsh ride and the tail-wagging-the-dog issues. As a result, I did the following upgrades @ Redlands RV Service Center:
1. Beeline laser wheel alignment
2. each tire/axle weighed
3. Tire pressure set according to mfg recommendations
4. Ultratrac rear trac bar
6. Koni FSDs
The Koni FSDs were a big improvement over the original Bilsteins; the wheel alignment didn't need much adjustments; the Ultratrac got rid of the tail-wagging-the-dog; and I'm not sure if I'm feeling any steering improvements with the Safe-T-Plus...verdict still out.
The last handling issue that I'm having is when the gust from the 18 wheelers hits the front/side area of the RV. I feel a push/tug that causes the steering wheel to jostle side-to-side for a brief moment. In my previous Super-C, it just felt like a gentle push from the side until the truck passed, but really didn't affect my steering wheel at all. I'm hoping that I can achieve that with my Class A.
My Ford chassis already has an OEM front trac bar, so I'm not sure what other options i have available. Do you think I can do both Steer Safe and my current Safe-T-Plus???
