Hi chuckbraden,
Welcome to iRV2. In the documentation that came with the coach, is there anything about the front axle? Also, consider calling Blue OX. They should have an idea of what you have. Lastly, you may need to take the coach to a Blue Ox distributor. They can take look at it and determine the best course of action.

Thanks for the responce. There is nothing in the documents. I stopped at a dealer and they suggested I contact Monaco. I did, no responce yet. I emailed to Monaco and to Roadmaster, nothing yet. We are traveling and I will keep trying dealers and internet when I can get wifi. We are in Missoula Mt heading west to the coast. Thanks again

Bracket for your coach should be TC5100
That is what I used on a 99 Dip and a 2000 Dyn
and the Trucenter # TC35270
RV Upgrade has it for $756 + cost of bracket

Well you should call, not email, if you want an answer soon. Call tech support 877-466-6226. Or you can crawl under the coach and in the center of the axle you should find a name stamped. It may also have a number. A call to the axle maker should provide you the information you need. Blue Ox will need the diameter of your tie rod also.

chuckbraden.....I just had my 05 aligned and the alignment guy told me that my front axle was a Spicer. I don't know if that is what you're looking for.

Side note: You don't say why you're adding the True Center, but I just had mine aligned for the firt time since I purchased new and it tracks soooo much better. It's almost effortless to steer.

On his coach the Blue ox list shows two for his coach year, it will be a 1 3/4 or a 2" tie rod and I would bet on the 1 3/4

Chuck,

I have a 2006 Diplomat and installed the TruCenter myself. I ordered the TC35270 and the TC5100 bracket kit from RVupgrades.
