Steering stabilizer

The dealership where we purchased our motorhome said they can install a steering stabilizer which supposedly will help with the coach being blown all over the road in windy conditions. Anyone out there have one of these on their coach? If so, does it help? I know others have recommended having the front end aligned and keeping the tires inflated to their max. Thanks for your input!

I'm pretty sure a steering stabilizer isn't going to help with wind and blowing your coach around.
That's just the nature of the beast.

A steering stabilizer helps with rough roads and tire wear as well as tire shimmy.
Don't expect this to work.
