TruCenter, TigerTrak, and 5 Star Tuner

We purchased a new Winnebago 35P with theFord V10. We immediately loved the rig but I wanted a little more stability in cross winds and a little more power. I installed a Blue Ox TruCenter and rear track bar. It has made the unit drive more like my Dodge 2500 pulling our fifth did. World of difference.

The 5 Star tuner enabled me to use my cruise on the trip a from Dallas to Little Rock without it frequently downshifting twice into the 4800 rpm scream! It now mostly stays in torque lockup! More power and better transmission work!

My brother-in-law and I installed the TruCenter and the Tiger Trak on their new Monaco last week and his loves it as well. When trucks pass us on the Interstate, 95% of the time, I don't feel a thing. We only drive about 62 mph so trucks pass us a lot. Every once in a while, I would feel a little movement when a truck would come by but rarely so.

Jan 2, 2006, I pulled out of my drive in Detroit and headed to Las Vegas.. A very "White knuckle" trip.

Thanksgiving Tuesday, that same year (The tuesday before Thanksgiving) I did it again.

The first trip.. When I got to Vegas, it was a relief to park the motor home and drive the towed.

The second trip, same towed, man was that mini-van hard to drive, I mean it was squirly as all get out.

What changed? Blue Ox true Center and a Davis Track Bar.
