we added a steering stablizer and it improved the driving experience a lot, stay in lane much better and cross winds are easier to handle but it is still a big box of air that is not aerodynamic and it gets pushed around in heavy winds. after a few thousand miles of driving i am used to it and it really does drive pretty well.

Installed a Safe-T-Plus, got it through Camping World, was about 400 or so. Was worth the cost.

What does it actually do?
Stabilize the front end and make it stiffer while driving?
Does it help you to go staright if your habds come off the wheel?

What is your thoughts.
Thanks

That stabilizer is designed for the P30 chassis, which is nearly impossible to drive without a stabilizer. I know because I drove one for 19 years, and the Georgetown drives better even without one.

So far I'm satisfied with the Ford F35 chassis but after a short trip to California I plan to have the front end checked because the steering goes to the right and the actual steering wheel is turned to the right a little and doesn't go straight center while driving staright.

I will contact FR in a few weeks and see what they say. Luckily I have a great local Ford Dealer that also Ford truck sales and maintence close by.

I had the same issue on my 2011 (steering wheel wasn't centered when driving straight) and they had to disassemble the steering gear box to correct it because the steering wheel is keyed to the shaft in a fixed position. This is a known issue that Ford knows about but they won't say anything unless you bring it to their attention.

Are you implying that they could not adjust the tie rod ends enought to get the steering wheel centered? Must have been off center 45 deg or more.

What happened to "The quality goes in before the name goes on"?

Quality got replaced by Quantity That seems to be all that matters these days!
