Thanks all, this is super helpful. We just bought used 2016 ACE 29.4 and the previous owners installed the SuperSteer in the rear but did not do the CHF so I'll be looking into that. Silly question I have, what do you mean "weighted"? Do you go to the weight stations on the highways? I know in CA, we wanted to do that for our travel trailer but there were signs that it's not allowed. So trying understand that.

Also, do you get alignment done before CHF or after? Just wanted to be sure there wasn't a specific order I should follow. We also found a bushing falling apart on driver's side which I believe is power steering bushing? Right now, we seem to have some slop that we are always over-correcting the steering wheel when driving and it's also crooked. I'm not sure we have much issues with winds but seems just driving the coach, it requires lots of effort to keep it straight on the road.

Thanks much!

To get your coach weighed find a Cat Scale near you. They will happily weigh your coach.

Fix any mechanical issues first (failing bushing..) - alignment second... coach weight and tire pressure can be anywhere in there... then drive the coach and decide what you want to do.
The CHF won't change the alignment.

Steering stabilizer

Have 2015 thor ace. Drove first 13000 miles w/o a steering stabilizer. Long trips were tiring. Have installed a roadmaster stabilizer. 1000% better. Did all it said it would. For the steering this is the best improvement. As for rough roads. We drive I10 east, and midwest. I think about all you can do is airbags. Like they say this is just a truck frame
