Since my jacks died I use leveling blocks as well. Plan on adding air bags and fixing the jacks.

I have added Blue-Ox true Center steering stablizer, (At the time the only one that could be re-centered in a pouring rain storm without getting wet)

I added a Davis True Trac trac bar (Front, despite everyone telling me to put on a rear one first) and plan on doing an Ultra Power rear one later.

That is for the chassis

For the house I inverterd..er, Added an inverter.. but many come that way.

Oh, and a break-out for the rear A/C so it can run of its own little 12ga Extension cord independent of the rest of the RV when stuck on a 30 amp site.

Home is where I park it!

P32 Workhorse chassis:
Previous owner warned that the beast handled/road awful and Semi push/pull was a white knuckle affair. So 5 years ago I:
- Replaced front tires and added balancing beads.
- Replaced front air bags (one was leaking) and thru trial/error found best pressure to be 72PSI (was previously at 35PSI).
- Increased tire pressure to 75PSI vs. the 65PSI the RV mfg recommended.

Rides nice now - 5 years later and I haven't had to do anything else,but it is getting time to replace a couple more tires so I'll be tweaking it again.

I think a lot can be done working with the stock systems (Ford's simple handling fix or Workhorse airbags/shocks).
Also, as stated above, a TPMS is a must in my book.

Inside - you know the drill - keep updating. It never ends.

Did most that you could do to a W22 chassis. Then traded for a Class C. Only miss the large holding tanks.
