Safe Track question

Hello, I am new to the class A motorhome world and this forum. I bought the motorhome ( '93 Itaska sunrise) about 3 weeks ago. I am learning so much from this forum, and have a "clunk" question....The previous owner said the Safe Track attachment makes a clunk noise when hitting bumps like expansion joints and even bumps in town. What could this be?

Are you talking about a Safe-T-Steer ?

If it's clunking over bumps, I'd be crawling under there with some wrenches making sure everything is tight. You don't want any part of that falling off and tearing up your tires !
The only times I've heard a sound from mine is a spring expanding during very low speed, hard turning manuvers.

PS. You can find their instalation instructions on their website.

I think the correct company name is SteerSafe. I have this on my motorhome, and no noises over bumps. There are installation guides on their website that may be helpful.

The website has an 800 number. Why not ask someone who actually knows?

Steersafe and Safety-T- Steer are two different products. Just sayin.

I can hear the springs every once in awhile. Nothing else.
