Roadmaster chassis steering gear box help needed

Good Morning ! My first post and I am glad to have found this site !! I have a 2004 Holiday Rambler Ambassador Diesel. The steering gear box is shot. I have found a replacement at REV to the tune of $2700 plus shipping. The gear box P/N is 10841825. I've been told that TRW should make a replacement for under $1000. Where should I look to confirm this ??

thanks
mark

Sounds about right, REV marks things up double.


Here is an extensive thread on the subject. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/ste...rw-210152.html


If you do have a TRW they can be rebuilt.


I have a Sheppard M100 but must be one of the lucky ones, my steering is tight.

Sheppard rebuit

I found a place here in Phoenix Az that rebuilds steering gear boxes and has an excellent reputation. I took him my leaking Sheppard M100 gear box in on a Friday and got it back Tuesday. $430 total. Now I just have to put it back in. The removal was a nightmare as I have never done it. Working on the ground, gravel not concrete. No clearance for a pitman arm tool, very little room for ratchets and wrenches, just Not much working room at all but after about 4 hours I had it out, and only 24 bandaids. Now to get it back in.
I can do this !

Be sure to tighten ("torque") the mounting bolts properly. If you cant do it with your tools or access, once you get it together take it to a truck shop and ask them to look it over and check the bolt tightness.
Good luck
