I had the Saft-T-Plus on a 2003 W22 Workhorse chasses. Worked fine, but I did notice more groan from the powersteering pump after the install. Never had a problem, but wasn't on that long befor I traded the RV. When I traded the RV in I removed and kept the Safe-T-Plus.

I now have the Roadmaster RR8R chasses. Drives and handles great. But thinking of installing the Safe-T-Plus on the Roadmaster chasses (just because I have it) and for the benefit of being there in case of any possible tire failure.

Has anyone with the Safe-T-Plus had any powersteering problems because of it being there?

I had it on a coach in the 1970's. It had no negative effects on the PS.

I had the same experience with a previous coach - the power steering groaned a lot more, working hard to overcome the added resistance of the Safe-T-Plus. I also felt I got no benefit from it, so I left it on the coach when we traded.

we've had a howard steering system on our coach with the rr8r chassis since new and have had no problems with the power steering! ( howard has up to 150lbs of centering load wich is far more than the safe-t-plus system. jim.

I've had the Safe-T-Plus stabilizer on two rigs. Never had a problem. It's highly unlikely that the device is responsible for the sound you hear. If I did observe a groan, I would get the front end and steering system checked out to look for other possible sources of the noise. The Safe-T-Plus is considered by many RV dealers to be a very solid product with a very broad user base. Best of luck.

Jack
