Outlaw handling

The F-53 chassis is big, burly, dependable and rugged. You just cannot kill it. It is , however, not a Ferrari. Out of the box, they handle like overloaded bread trucks. Sure, Ford puts generic,...

wiring issue?

Say it isn't so....a wiring issue in a new Thor product? I guess they didn't catch all the assembly line druggies in their drug-test process. I understand that manufacturers get about 60% of job...

You know, Joe, you can actually go to the Safe-T-Plus factory in Georgia, and they will install for free. Check their Youtube videos for info. I would not drive any RV without that unit on the...

Safe-T-Plus

It should cost about 400.00 for the stabilizer, and another 200.00 for the front-end alignment and installation. My 2014 Vegas 24.1 handles much better now, and the added safety during a tire blowout...

extra wiring

That wiring is for the flux capacitor. If time travel is what you prefer to road travel, this is where you connect. It does provide 1.21 gigawatts of electricity, so be careful.

Safe-T-Steer

I installed Safe-Plus on my Vegas. I cannot comment on other systems, but anything you add for steering stability will save your life in a blow-out situation, or evasive move on the highway. The unit...

odometer reading

I tow a 2006 PT Cruiser turbo convertible. Flat-towing does not register miles for my car. JamieGeek is correct that all vehicles act differently, and some may indicate miles while others may not. I...

jensen radio

The model I replaced the 212T with is a Jensen JRV215NR. You will also need the Siruis tuner for $35.00, if you want Sirius reception. The head unit was $600.00, but you really do need the 3 camera...
