TruCenter reviews wanted

A few weeks ago there was a lot of talk of people installing steering stabilizers. I'm leaning on the side of ordering and installing a TruCenter myself. The best price I can find is $925 for the 270#.

Question for those that installed yourself, is it advisable to NOT jack the front end up to install the bracket under the leaf springs?

I have had my true center sitting on my work bench for three weeks now. I called Blue Ox before I ordered to verify the correct mounting bracket. Ordered from rvupgrades that had the best price I could find at the time. Bracket would not work. After three days of phone calls and taking pictures and sending to BO was told I needed a different bracket. Now that bracket is back ordered until July 15th. I'm kinda wishing I went with the safe t plus with the trim kit.

"mike brew"...... If it will make you feel better, the Safety Plus and the TruCenter use the same bracket. I initially installed the Safety Plus and hated it. I removed it and sold it to a friend that wanted it. When I ordered the TruCenter, I was surprised to find it was the same bracket.....wish I had the kept the first one.

I loved the TruCenter that I put on my Diplomat. Yes, you can jack up the front end and install the bracket and the the piston. Just leave the u bolts loose until you take the coach off the jacks......make sure the coach is sitting straight and adjust the piston.

When you install the switch, make sure it's somewhere that you can blindly and easily reach. Hitting the switch soon becomes second nature, but it must be easy to reach. I bought a momentary switch that matched my other dash switches.
