Need to add

I forgot to mention how great it was dealing with Matt and Nick at Weller. Very helpful and good customer service. When core was ready to ship back I texted Nick and he had a driver at the house the same day. Just had to mention how easy these guys made the purchase. Thanks Weller!

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.

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.

Yes, they always do. Our steering gears usually have very little wear and are easy for them to rebuild. Some of our Sheppards are very popular in other arenas. Great steering gears they just do not fit our application well.

GREAT to hear the guys at Weller are still just as GREAT as when we started this journey with them.

CHEERS!!
