Frankie, Congratulation on your new MH. Same reason I brought my Hurricane. Question for you: How much PSI do you keep your tires at? Did your come with G670 RV 245/70R19.5?

They had over 80psi but I brought it down to 75 and it made a noticible differance. I weighed my rig with almost all my traveling gear and went by the goodyear chart. I do have the same tires. I also installed a safe-t-plus steering dampner and it took away a lot of the push from the semi's driving by me.Next will be a rear track bark from Henderson's.

I have 75 PSI and when I go on my next trip, before leaving, I am going to weight the MH with everything I am going to use. Now the other thing you mentioned (safe-t-plus steering and a rear track bark) all new langrage to me. I guess all this is upgrade.

MyLife and Frankie,
If you ever get done getting the coach the way you want it, let me know. The upgrades mentioned in earlier posts never end! It's the progress of technology ya know! When anywhere near a Camping World there is a strange tug on my wallet. It's like the black hole in outer space, with my $s.

Congrats on your new coach. May you have all the trouble free miles you can stand.

Best advice given me was to wait and get used to the way it drives.I had it out a couple trips and even though it handled good,I want better. The safe-t-plus is a steering shock.This helps tracking when you hit those ruts on the road.Stiffens the wheel play.My problem is over correcting when I hit wind , etc.After learning it is much more comfertable and am up to about 500 miles a day without a lot of fatigue.Track bar will help the roll feeling in the rear when you make turns to sharply.
Rv stores are an an addiction as well,my dealer just opened a camping world and its hard not to spend money when MH is getting serviced.

Frankie,
Great news and good luck. This has got to be an exciting acquisition and addition to your cmping experience. One slide for Karen, the boys and one for you, the numbers work. I want a tour at AI.

That's what I am going to do, wait, and get the feel of it. Make a few trips hope the gas go down to have extra to spend on MH.

Thanks, Great site, lots of information.
