Jerry, your signature block indicates you have a 2018 Aspire 42DEQ. From your posts, Iím implying youíve changed to a coach with an F floorplan?

Correct. I use the iPad app and have not been able to change signature with that but if you look up my info
It should have my Ď21 Anthem 44F.

First long drive yesterday and not impressed with EZ Steer in windy weather. I donít feel a significant difference from my Aspire while driving

I think you will like the EZ steer when you get used to it. My Newmar Comfort Drive took me a little to settle in and get the feel, love it now after a full day in a 40 mph crosswind I felt more relaxed than spending the day in same conditions on my 2016 Cornerstone. JMHO

Gene where do you find the steering setting comfortable in windy conditions? I set the control full on the first time I tried it backing in my driveway. I was all over the street, looked like newbie. There is a learning curve to the EZ steer and I don't know it.

Chuck, Gene has a lot of real-world experience with the Comfort Drive/E-Z Steer system (same system, different names), so he will be able to give you a definitive answer to your question.

For what it may be worth, in the course of diagnosing some drivability issues with our 2018 Cornerstone I ended up test driving half a dozen coaches with that system (four Newmars, two Entegras). What I found was that if you dial the system all the way down, you'll know it's active but it won't be all that noticeable. Conversely, if you dial it all the way up, the steering will have a significant amount of resistance. I found the best approach (for me anyway) was to start out with the setting right in the middle and tweak up or down from there as you drive until you figure out what suits your preference.

Chuck, I set mine a hairs width above half way first day I drove the Cornerstone and haven’t changed it in almost a year.
It was pretty windy coming to Tampa Monday and the easy steer was great. You’ll still feel the sudden gust, but otherwise I thought it handled great.

Sorry Gene

Thanks for the feedback. Learned the hard way, do not use full assists backing in a tight circle the first time using EZ Steer. Talk about over steering.

I think it will vary with individuals but I like a little ďfeel of the roadĒ but still want the assist for windy conditions and to prevent any fatigue. I prefer it just about 4.5, any higher for me results in oversteer especially in the wind but pretty much all the time at road speed. Rarely ever change it unless I know I am going to be doing low speed, tight maneuvering. Usually that would be in very tight quarters and need precise control. JMHO

Donít apologize, we need everyoneís opinion, besides we arenít far apart and I think I have adjusted mine twice for a maneuver and then right back. Bottom line I recommend that folks start at 5 and adjust until it fits your personal liking and then mostly leave it alone. I love it but do not feel the need to change it much. At first I thought it was a sales tool but came to rely on it and became a believer fairly quick. Guess I have drunk the koolaide! JMHO

Ours doesnít have numerical values, just a scale like the fuel gauge. What would 4.5 equate to on that scale? How high does your numbers go?

Goes to ten, so a little less than half way.
