Do a search for Safe T Plus, if you are able to purchase directly through them they will install and set up for free.. There are several threads here regarding the product and I believe there are other manufactures that make similar products.

If you use the Roadmaster, make sure to torque the bracket that connects to the tie rod. They are prone to slippage. Also a good idea to spray paint (mark location) of tie rod bracket after you get it adjusted. If it slips you will be able to see where it should be located for proper center.


Old units had a set screw on the frame end that was covered with a Roadmaster sticker. This set screw would come loose and allow the stabilizer to "unscrew".


I had these issues, but once resolved the stabilizer was a good upgrade for me. It eliminated the "sawing" motion of the steering wheel needed to keep the coach centered going down the road.

I just got my roadmaster in today. Going to put it on this weekend. Trying to find torque value for front axle U bolts. I thing it's 250ft/lb but unsure.
I have the F53 22k GVWR.

I got a Roadmaster stabilizer for Christmas 2017 and installed in the driveway a few days later when the weather warmed up, slightly. Took about 30 minutes to install with standard hand tools. No problems with slippage or offset steering wheel neutral and the associated steering drift after about 10,000 miles.

Just following up on the steering stabilizer. I finally got it installed yesterday (9/5) and amazing difference in the steering. No more sawing the steering wheel during test drive. Have a long planned for weekend of 9/18 so can't wait to see how it does on a longer drive.

Nice to hear a follow-up. Now that we've been out a few times since installing the Roadmaster stabilizer, I'm very happy with it's performance and it is not a costly upgrade.
