RE: Steering & Sway problem

do a search on this topic, lots of info on this site 1. Bilstiens shocks for smoother ride 2. Anti sway bars by Roadmaster, etc which connect box to chassis better for stability. 3 Steering stabilizer which holds front wheels in straight line to help stabilize steering. 4. air bags only help more for towing and heavier loads in back steering stabilizer would help most for your situation but all three work together and really do make a big improvement despite what others may say. cost about $3K for all. 5. then have it aligned because if you have it aligned first and then do the mods, it might throw alignment off . i had the exact same problems with my first unit. once I did the research on this site and did these mods, it drove beautifully.

RE: rough ride

you will only be able to smooth the ride out so much. recommend a good set of bilsteins or other shocks first. air bags are to help when towing or more weight in rear but wont necessarily give smoother ride, same with helper springs. sway bar will help with leaning but wont smooth out ride. the truly smooth ride only comes from a full on air suspension like on the diesel class a's. thats different from air bags. its too expensive to put a true air suspension on a class c, although it can be done. some ambulances, vehicles for handicapped, etc have it. the ride in a diesel class a is a world of difference, but so is the price.

RE: genny runtime

Thanx for the info. This is the first time we have had to run it for over 24 hrs. Never even thought about the oil consumption issue

RE: What is the fuel economy, or UNeconomy, on a "C".

I have never gotten 9mpg. No matter what I do I get 6.8. Whether 75 mph or 60, dash air or no air, generator on or off no diff. Finally quit worryin about mpg and more about gettin there and enjoyin the trip. 2000 mi to disney payin ave 3.60 gal in march cost around 1100 and I budgeted for 4.00 a gallon. Lowest I paid was 3.20s highest 3.80s/Gallon

RE: Fort Wilderness loop question, 900 loop I think

RE: KOA Reservations vs what you get when you arrive

we have stayed at several KOAs and have never had an issue. We like that it has a franchise tag because they all seemed to have at least a certain basic set of similar amenities such as well stocked store, pool, playground for kids. Did anyone see the KOA CEO on the cbs tv show undercover boss last year? He has a management background from the las vegas casino industry and it seemed customer satisfaction was his main emphasis, so if you wrote corporate to complain, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if you got a response from KOA. They do have a reputation to protect.

RE: Rocking While Driving

i did the following and it made a world of difference: for lean, add a roadmaster anti sway bar to the rear for steering wander- new steering stabilizer and front end alignment for bottoming out and rough ride- bilsteins shocks. try and identify the problem: is it the box leaning? is it the front end wandering? is it rear sagging? etc. I suspect its the box leaning and would start with an anti sway bar which helps connect the box to the frame, but would recommend at least shocks, anti sway bar, and steering stabilizer. makes a world of difference on my forest river e450 32 ft, and i purchased it brand new.

RE: Downsizing to a C

Most diesel super cs like the jayco wont be much of a downsize Thor just came out with a new super c but dont know much about it Otherwise in a diesel c u go to a sprinter and give up space and cargo carrying capacity for slightly better gas mileage I was about to go to a 32 ft breeze diesel class a but didnt like the sleeping capacity but it drove nice . I like my class c gas because its easy to get worked on, can go anywhere even at 32 ft, and goes up grades with more acceleration than most diesels. Just big enough to hold 4 comfortably, just small enough to go anywhere. Forest river 3010 has lots of counter space. 2013s even have front seats that swivel- in a class c. But u give up ccc
