Had test drive tonight on the interstate with 25 mile an hour wind quartering from the left. As others have experienced the coach was easy to keep in my lane. Before I would have been sea sawing back and forth to control the motorhome. It now drives how I imagined it should have driven from the beginning.
Again, thanks to CrazyKnight, Vanwill for encouraging him and all other too many to list for their input and help to other Monaco owners. This is indeed a great community of caring Rv'ers.
Hope to meet some of you at Q sometime in the future.
Keepin it between the ditches!
WELL DONE!! I know those installations are not "easy". BIG and HEAVY
Plus the old stuff is always frozen up.
You are most welcome! GREAT NEWS!!!
SWAP ON!! (if you want too)
Safe travels.....enjoy the "new" drive.
