Roadmaster reflex steering stabilizer

I know this has been discussed before but need help.

Looking at Jayco grey hawk class c. Should I add reflex stabilizer or not. Those that put it on was it worth the $$$. Would like to hear from actual people that installed one. Thanks for replies.

Enjoy the journey

check my signature line. everything I've done to RV has helped. and because it's a billboard running down the highway, it needs all the help it can get. the Roadmaster reflex steering stabilizer was the easiest to install upgrade I added to RV

I would definitely get the Stabilizer bar. I put the same one on a 35ft class that was a pig to drive, it helped a lot.

Thanks for the replies. Kind of thought it was worth doing. Pricing out know and looks like $350 should get it to the house. Think Iíll order tomorrow.


Take care

The OP asked if it was worth it. We responded accordingly.

Some E350/E450 have handling issues, some do not, the following may explain the difference:

Ford ships all E350/E450 cut aways with identical fixed, non adjustable
caster/camber collars, "one size fits all". You can recognize these collars because they are keyed and cannot be rotated. They are marked "F8UA-AA 0+.25" on the passenger side and "E97A-CA +0-0" on the drivers side.

The RV builder almost never changes the Ford collars, as a result:

If the final RV build is nose down one degree then the runtime caster will be about +3.5 degrees. These units can have a real wandering problem.

If the final RV build is nose level then the runtime caster will be about +4.5 degrees. These units are probably indifferent.

If the final RV build is nose up one degree then the runtime caster will be about +5.5 degrees. These units are probably just fine, possibly excepting the 31+ footers.

So, some RVs have a problem with wandering at highway speeds and some do not have a problem. JMO.

POPULAR MECHANICS MAY 1973:
START QUOTE:
If too little caster exists, the car will wander and weave,
thus necessitating constant corrections in steering.
