Nor would we want it to "lock" the steering straight ahead - you still need to be able to steer off the road to a safe stop or maybe even avoid another vehicle.
The reason many have installed, or are considering installing, the Safe-T-Plus is to help control (steer) the coach "straight" in the event of a front tire blow out.
My original comments may have been misunderstood.
No one (I hope) is expecting or wanting the steering to be "locked".
My concern about the trim unit was if a sudden force (like a tire blowout) could "knock the trim unit out of the centered position". If that was possible then you would have more trouble steering straight after a blowout because you would then be fighting the blown tire and the stabilizer spring (which would then no longer centered).
However, it sounds like that is not as much of a concern as I had thought. And that the trim unit only has about an inch of travel so even it if was knocked out if position, it would only ba an inch (or half inch) which is not as bad (the device looked like it had several of inches of travel).
