I had a Steer Safe installed on my last coach and it worked great. I have installed it on my new coach (both Freightliner chassis) and had no problem with the install, but apparently did not get the front wheels quite straight. I also mis-placed my instructions and wondered if any of you might have an easy way to ensure the wheels are straight before I adjust it.

Many thanks!

If the coach drove straight when the steering wheel was centered BEFORE you installed it, then you should be able to loosen the Steer Safe, center the steering wheel and then retighten everything. Or is that what you did in the first place?

I will give that a shot. I tried to do that before, but was off just a touch. Thanks

I had a Safe T Steer installed by Henderson's in Oregon and watched them do it. They "eye-balled" getting the wheels straight for the initial install and then we went on a road test. We agreed that we had a bit of a pull to the right so stopped in a parking lot and I got under the coach to watch him adjust it. He loosened one Safe T Steer bracket only enough so he could rap it with a hammer to move the bracket only about 1/8" or so. He then tightened it and we road tested again and it appeared perfect. I think it's a bit of trial and error with these things.
