Safe-T-Plus Steering Control Feedback

Would like to hear feedback from anybody that has a Safe-T-Plus installed. Noticeable difference?

I have a Saf-T-plus on my 2014 legacy and it makes a big difference in my opinion.

The steering wheel always comes back to center on its own now just like a car. It's also easier to drive when you have significant cross winds.

I took 2 trips from LA to Colorado without the sad-t-plus. My forearms were toast for 2 weeks after each trip from battling to keep the coach on the road through 20+ mph cross winds in Utah and Nevada.

It took much less effort to drive the same cross winds after the saf-t-plus was installed. In my experience, it was worth every penny.

Great, thanks for the feedback. Do you remember how much it was to install?

I had it installed at the dealer, but it was almost 3 years ago. I think it was around $800, but I can't remember the cost now.

I, too, experienced a "white knuckle" drive a few weeks back. It didn't seem to windy outside but we were basically driving into a headwind. Spent the three hours working hard to keep our rig between the lines. Does the Safe-T-Plus, or similar products, help in situations like this?

This is our third camping season in our Legacy and have logged 28,000 miles to date. (We are not retired). Just had the Safe T Plus installed and are on our first trip. My husbands reaction is that he wished he done it three years ago. He is comfortable using the cruise control for the first time. He loves it. He bought it and intended to install it himself but had no way to get under the coach so he had it installed. Total cost similar to what's quoted here.

Itís great I was about ready to sell my motor home. I installed it by running the motor home up on a couple blocks. I took my time trying to get everything as straight as I could. I drove it for a test ride and it was almost perfect. I made two very small adjustments. I can easily drive with one hand if I want. Well worth the money for me.

I am getting one installed next week. I will let you know how it works. Most of the time I can handle the movements and it's not too bad, but on long trips, fighting the winds gets old.
