No power steering.

Posted 04-25-2021 at 10:42 PM by Rwbrown3

So when I bought our new to us 2007 Damon Tuscany 4076 I noticed the steering wheel was hard to turn at a stop, the instant the wheels started rolling the coach could be turned. I thought that was just normal, I'd never driven a CP coach before. This spring when I brought the coach of a deep winter slumber the coach had lost all power steering. I was almost pulling my arms out of their sockets trying to turn the steering wheel. Three weekends ago I received my TRW power steering pump. Less than 200 dollars, (a relief). The pump is a little bigger than a grape fruit and mounts on the end of the air compressor. So the day came when I thought I would tackle the problem. I bought 2 gallons of Dexron transmission fluid in anticipation that I would need it. This change out could not have been easier. I first jacked the unit up on its rear jacks, just enough for me to slide under. The pump is held on by two bolts. I first loosed the clamp holding the low pressure hose from the filler tank, and in a stroke of genius plugged the hole with a bolt. The high pressure hose was then removed. hardly any fluid came out of that. I removed two bolts holding the old pump on and once out I changed over the fittings two bolts back in, hoses back on and only lost maybe two quarts of fluid. After getting cleaned up I started the coach and steering was back to one, maybe two finger steering even at a stop! This is an easy job that most anyone can do.
