Hello from south Oregon coast

Itasca Sunstar 31KE. Have about 8000 miles under our belts including 3 month trip out through Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Arkansas. Back via Texas, Arizona, and California. Also trips up and back to Washington state. More local trips here in Oregon. Retired engineer since May of 2016. Very interested in the mechanics and electrical details of motor homes in general and our rig in particular. Have installed sway bars fore and aft and steering stabilizer with neighbor's help. Am extra class ham and have 2M set on board (and CB which so far pretty useless). Looking to learn as much as possible. Focused on this as hobby and way of life. Have learned a lot from this site prior to joining. Thanks. Happy travels to all.

The sway bars and steering stabilizer didn't come with it?

Sounds like your off to a great start, enjoy!

Sway Bars & Steering Stabilizer

Samuel, had undersized sway bars. Upgrade replaced front one and adds additional rear one. They really were puny. And no, the manufacturer does not provide a reflex steering stabilizer. Can not believe how much easier it is to drive now.
