Makes you wonder...if the CHF was an obvious improvement and simple to do, then why wouldn't the manufacturer do it?

found this


I asked the Ford Engineer that very question and the response made sense. They only make the "Stripped" chassis. This means anything could be put on the top of those frame rails (ie: flat bed, box truck, etc). They don't set it up specifically for MH customers. It would be up to the MH manufacturers to make the mod.

I just completed the Cheap Handling Fix and installation of a Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer on my 2015 FR3 25DS. I am very pleased with the results. The steering 'wander' is pretty much gone and the greatly reduced swaying makes for much better handling in turns etc. I have only done a short test drive without the toad, but am planning a 3000+ mile trip at the beginning of March and will really tell me how much better it is.

Why did you go with the road master system as compared to the safe t plus system?

Did you do the CHF on both front
& rear ?

I chose the Roadmaster product primarily on cost. The basic principle of operation was the same as some others, but this appeared to be the lowest cost. It was simple to install and I made sure the wheels were pointed straight ahead prior to installation and I lucked out and did not have to do any further adjustments to get it to track straight. I did the CHF on both front and rear and retained the original struts on the front, despite the ongoing debate on whether to get longer ones or not.

Don't have the FR3 but have the Coachmen Pursuit and I installed the Roadmaster RSSA and did the cheap handling fix. Last week I took the coach out to the factory service center for some repairs. Had the tow dolly and a Chevy Silverado Pick up on it and found the Roadmaster stabilizer to make a huge difference. Drove most of the time with one hand. Last August on the way to the FROG rally and a lighter vehicle on the dolly it was a two hand drive. Went with the Roadmaster because I found one with the mounting bracket for less then $240.00 including shipping. Took approximately 30 minutes to install it.

Has any one figured out how to take up the slack in the steering on the fr3. I did the cheap fix and safety plus. Still some slack in the steering. No problem with passing trucks or wind, just seems loose in the steering wheel.
