Safe-T-Plus Part Numbers - Watch out for Tie Rod Size - 2018
I reached out to the good folks at Safe-T-Plus to confirm the part numbers for our 2018 Legacy. Sharing so that others may benefit from this in the future...
“Good Morning TKN 516!
Thank you for reaching out to us. We appreciate your interest in our Safe-T-Plus Steering Control.
As for your 2018 Forest River Legacy motorhome on a Freightliner XCS chassis will require our Safe-T-Plus Steering Control Model 41-230 (Blue unit). In addition, you will need our F-143K2 (for 1 ½” tie rod) mounting hardware kit. It would be best to double check your tie rod diameter. We have found some to be 1 3/4" and also 1 5/8". That measurement directly relates to the size u-bolts we send in the mounting hardware kit. K3 will get you u-bolts to fit 1 3/4" tie rod; K2.5 will get u-bolts to fit 1 5/8". Better to check now than to find you have wrong part during the install.
For your reference, we are also including a set of installation instructions for your motorhome. This should provide some insights as to how easy the bolt-on install process is for Safe-T-Plus. If you need a good visual, we have an installation and centering video on our website that will walk you through each step.
Are you looking to install Safe T Plus yourself or have it installed by a service center or dealer?
If you wish, you may purchase directly from the factory. In fairness, factory pricing will be higher than our dealers as we cannot compete with our dealer network. Or, if you’re traveling through Atlanta, you are welcome to visit factory to purchase your Safe T Plus and have it installed at no charge. Let me know what works best for you. Glad to help.
Again, thank you for your request and your interest in Safe-T-Plus Steering Controls.
