This is the device that charges both batteries, it is usually located on the drivers side firewall.

Glad you like the Koni shocks. I'm planning on putting them on my 05 when I get home from this trip. Please describe the changes in ride and performance.

First off, I live in the land of "horrible roads", Louisiana. When these guys on here discuss expansion-joints and those sounds disappearing when installing Koni's have no idea what we have to deal with down here. For me, the idea was to omit the porporsing that was happening. The Intruder is a pretty long out-back model, meaning behind the tires I've got alot of weight. That equated to an extent on my up/down as the weight transferred over these horrible roads.

I was trying to soften that or eliminate. I did just that and in the process got a better handling coach, softer ride but still able to feel the road greatly, and made the coach more stable.

I would recommend these. I am a Bilstein guy by the way, have them on my Pickup and have on the last three I have owned, immediately going to them after purchase, so I believe they have a good product overall. But when it came to RV shocks, I just continually did my homework thanks to this site and other areas, talked to Eric at Eric's RV, and knew that Koni was a superior product. Again, given our road situation where I would do most of my driving, this was an area i would shoot to maybe spend the extra money.

When I had AM Solar install 4 of their panels with inverter/converter and other electrical goodies, I had 4 - 6 volt Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) maint free batteries installed on their sides on the shelf above the LP compartment. The 2 wet 6 volt house batteries under the steps were hooked up/linked with the 12 volt engine battery. For more info about batteries, visit:

A few comments on your list of modifications

New Batteries
Well that is addressed above

Rear Sway Bar
Front Sway Bar[/quote]

I found the original sway bars were very good

Front Steering Stabilizer
Blue-Ox true center, best I've found, it's what I have

Front Trac Bar
Consider a rear Trac bar too, Ultra power on the rear (less expensive) I used a Davis on the front (Wll do rear later)

Oil Change
Fuel Filter Change (OEMY's New Style)[/quote]

Good plan there, Routine maintenance should always be done on a used rig unless you are 100% sure the seller just did it (And that means all the time)

Install SSC Workhorse Gauge Cluster (my Actia has horrible output on the odometer so I found a NIB SSC style that I had calibrated to my odometer, Actia wanted twice as much to repair mine plus shipping)
LINK TO SITE PLEASE.. Just in case we need it

Koni FSD's all the way around
I would test to see if needed first.. But not a bad idea in any case. Good brand.

Just re-read the original post

What steering wheel did it come with?

Mine came with the "Delux" which as I recall is 18" Alas, blocked my view of a very important dial on the dash (Speedometer) so I wound up getting a larger one

Custom made, one of a kind far as I know hand assembled 20" wheel. custom made to fit Workhorse (has a workhorse hub) black arms instead of brushed aluminum, 127 bucks on my doorsetp.
