We just purchased our 2006 Itasca "Class A" 31'. We are very happy with the coach.

However, after a few trips now we noticed the flip-up dash/instrument panel assembly, which opens on a hinge for access, bounces to the point were you can't even play a CD in the in-dash CD player.

It appears that the assembly is secured by a round velcro patch on the dash and a 2" strip on the bottom of the part of the dash/instrument assembly that swings open. The velcro is not enough to secure the assembly. I don't understand why there isn't some sort of other restraining system to secure the assembly to the dash, for example. a latch, removable fasteners, etc..

Our service department suggested that we try using double sided tape to secure the assembly to stop it from vibrating.

I'm hoping someone has experienced this issue and has a solution that both is functional and looks good.

While we have never owned an Itasca, we did have a Fleetwood product with a swing up dash. It was secured with a strap and snap fastener. When the instrument panel was closed it was long enough that it hung down under the dashboard so it could be snapped by reaching under the dashboard.

I had this problem when I first got my coach and the solution was very simple.

"Properly inflate the front tires."

Have the coach weighed and then inflate the tire to support that weight using the tire manufacturers inflation chart available on their web site.

Solve all my skipping problems except for on the roughest roads but on those even your teeth will skip and chatter.

Either you are running competively in the Baja Race or you have a waaay messed up suspension. My '02 Suncruiser 35' is as stable as can be. Check pressures, shocks (they sound bad) and consider a steering/chassis bars.
