The Safari Panther I am considering has both the Safe T Plus damper and the Steer Safe system installed on it by a previous owner. Not sure if they were trying to compensate for a problem or were just very concerned for their safety. The Panther is on the 10 airbag S Series Roadmaster chassis. Has anyone ever used both systems on one of these? Why both?

My guess is the latter.

Since neither of these systems is particularly cheap, I'd at least wonder if there was some attempt at curing a handling problem.

Unusual I would think on a 10 bag DP chassis.

Perhaps, the original owners had good success on previous rigs with the add-on stuff and just put them on for General Principle.

I have not used the systems, but they seem to be popular with folks who have handling problems on gas chassis.

I was wondering the same thing although the tire wear is pretty even across the face of the tire and I am replacing all the tires with Michelins and having the alignment done before purchase. I was thinking about removing both systems and seeing how the coach rides.

I would think both would be unnecessary load on the power steering but myself would keep one. I have the Safe T Plus and like it. It is there for safety in case of a blowout occurring during normal driving and you donít notice it that much. I do however notice an improvement with passing trucks and cross winds as well as with rut tracking on bad roads since its purpose is to hold the front tires straight.
