Just thought I would throw this out there.

I had a Safe-T-plus steering stabilizer mounted on a Frieghtliner chassis. After almost 7 yrs of service it began to leak oil. I contacted them directly and was instructed to send the unit back for testing and inspection.

It was determined that in fact it did have an oil leak. They shipped a new one out free of charge even though the warranty was only for 2 years.

In this day and age it is a breath of fresh air to see a company not afraid to stand behind their products for the long haul. They have also been in contact with me several times to assure the reinstallation went smoothly.

We also had a leaker on our previous mh, a 2005 Winnebago Voyage, and it was replace free of charge by them. The Safe-T-Plus is a really nice addition to mh's as it allows for a really smooth and effortless driving experience when set up properly.

I've been thinking of getting something to give our steering a little more firmness, not necessarily for me as I'm a retired truck driver, but for the DW. We have a 2000 Bounder 39Z DP and while it steers good with no tire wear, the DW sometimes has trouble when the road grooves want to pull/push it off line. I was looking at the Safe-T-Plus and it is advertized to control quite a bit of that type of action.

It is obvious that you feel they are a very good company and have a good product and no argument here. Can you please describe what the steering was like before you installed the Safe-T-Plus and exactly how much improvement it gave you.

Can you tell us what year and model you MH is and if you have a stabilizer bar on your rear axle. The reason I ask is that I'm been told a lot of "steering wondering" comes from the rear and that is where one should start. As firm as our MH steers I'm not sure, so your personal experience is going to be very helpful.

Thank You

My MH. is a 2005 Fleetwood Expedition that sits on a Frieghtliner chassis. Yes it came with a rear sway bar. Before I installed it it felt like I could feel everything through the steering wheel , bridge expansion joints for example. Ruts from years of heavy truck traffic was also sometimes a handful. Though the stabilizer hasnt cured everything 100% it has greatly improved the driving experience and adds piece of mind.

Thanks for the post. My STP has been on my rig for six years now and I've been really happy with how it has turned driving my rig into a two finger exercise.
