Driving class A in he wind

Unread postby danwb46 on Wed Nov 25, 2009 6:10 pm

So I quickly look through the existing post and did not see any info regarding my problem.....
I have a 2003 35' class A Dolphin (national RV) when I drive with a strong cross wind the coach leans over, feels like alot. I have been looking through the Camping World catalogue and they have three (3) apparent solutions.... new shocks, anti-sway bars and something call Saf-t-steer which looks like a shoch absorber that installs in the steering system.
I am wondering what is the best solution..... Anyone have a similar problem? Ideas?
Thanks

We have a 31' class C and have driven through some high winds in Kansas. We had no lean, but you could feel the push. There is something installed on our c, looks like a shock absorber mounted horizontal on the steering assembly. I have seen 1 on other C's. When we take ours in for Pa state inspection, I plan on getting some info on the shock.
I will look for a site for saf-t-steer and let you know if that's what we have.

After searching for pictures of the saf-t-steer, I still have nbo clue what we have. Be description, it sounds like a steering stabilizer. Ours is stamped Ford Motor Co, so it is probably an original option. By the description, it seems like a steering stabilizer. Hit a pothole...wheel goes back to center, strong wind, rv stays straight. So, I would say it works, at least in our case.
