Refresh of Steer Safe MCUs

The last discussion of this product was over a year ago and I thought it was worthy of one more visit.

Just had the Steer Safe Motion Control Units put on my Safari Cheetah with a RR4R Roadmaster Chassis. The difference is amazing. No more brake dive, porpoising, side to side sway leaving or entering a parking lot or turn. Body dip and rebound on turns is minimum and hardly noticeable. Handles more like the "family truckster wagon" than typical motorhome.

One of few products that truly lives up to the claims. Between $450 to $600 Average per 4 bag coach and can be done by novice if bags and lines are accessible.

I would highly recommend!

Jim

I put the MCU's on a couple of months ago. It has really reduced road bumps and bumps going over expansion joints. Cornering is much improved as well. The coach stays pretty much flat turning 90-degree corners. The dangerous part now is taking the corner too fast!!

Where did you get yours? Is the improvement just from those or do you have any other add ons?

Going to the NE FMCA Rally in Essex Junction, Vt next week and hope there is a vendor there.

I got mine from this site http://www.precisionframe.com/store_...trol_Units_MCU I've also had the Koni shocks installed, though several thousand miles prior to the MCU's. The MCU's made far more difference that the Koni's, though the Koni's did dampen the road viberation quite a bit.

No other changes to suspension, they really do work, make sure you measure diameter of air lines, mine were 1/4 inch rear, 3/4 inch front. I had dealer get mine, but the link provided above is the loweest I found on the internet. Here it is again

After watching dealer, if I was not fat and old, I could have done it easily in about 1 hour for all four as long as it has access to lines. You do need a good rubber line cutter, it looks like a tree pruner.

I crawled under my coach this morning looking for the air lines. Which ones am I looking for? Are they the only lines coming out of the air bags? Is there only one line in each?
