I noticed that the center a/c outlet (to the right of the dash) did not flow as much air as the other outlets. This was caused by the a/c hose being compressed by the brackets when the dash was in its normal position. I noticed the hose had taken a set where it was mashed by the dash. The fix was to reroute the left hose more to the left and under the lower brace of the bottom dash and reroute the center hose over the brace at the top of the upper dash and then under the lower brace where the left hose was ran. This required me to switch the outlets that supplied the two hoses just so the center hose would reach after the rerouting. I know this may sound a little unclear, but it will become pretty obvious when you raise the dash. I now have considerably more air flow than I did before...

Dave, Thanks for the write up. I looked at mine and see that the hose is squashed a bit. I followed your fix clearly now that I've looked at mine.

We have the same coaches, did you find the trac bar helps much?

To DonavonP,
Yes, the track bar helped a lot. Until I read about the rear-end sway on the Workhorse site I hadn't noticed it on our coach. The next time I drove it I paid close attention to the rear-end movement and realized it was clearly noticeable. The track bar has eliminated the sideways movement entirely. Sway or tilt was never a problem but the rear-end did move to the side on a sharp corner. I pulled out of the workshop and drove to a curvy road nearby to try it out. The change was remarkable. It is not a sports car, but it corners much better now.
The track bar and the TruCenter together make the coach very stable when passing or being passed by semi's. Hardly a bobble now.

Dave
