CHF question .?

So I have a 2016 FR3 that we picked up last October. Only put about 200 miles on it before winterizing it. We are not full timers (but wish we were).

I have read a lot about the CHF.

Is it worth doing? And can someone with long term experience comment on any long term positive /negative effects that they have found. I have seen posts years old about doing it so there must be some experts out there by now. Someone who has logged some miles

Thanks

You'll find its the first stop for many to improve the ride quality. It stiffens up the chassis to prevent side to side roll. And it doesn't cost anything except 30 mins of your time hence the name. After the CHF, some may go on to add other suspension mods. Also, you'll probably find out the rear sway bar saddle will be loose on one or both sides. Its a known issue that typically comes loose over time. Like ours only had 5k miles on it and it already lost a bolt on the RH side and bent the saddle clamp. No ill effects IMO when doing the CHF, just positive experiences.

Turns two handed white knuckle driving into single handed firm grip handling.

BIG difference..

Ditto what Waiter21 said. Big improvement in the handling.

Cheap handling fix. It's a adjustment to the front end on a class A motor home.

Thanks guys. Look like I have a project when the weather improves. I'll start with the front and see how it goes before moving to the rear
