New Axis owners in DFW

We took delivery of our 2017 Axis 24.1 today. 😎 We were thinking we'd need to put together a tool kit for it, but received this one, a bottle of wine and a startup kit for the RV. After the hour drive home on highways & Interstate I think our first order of business is a front end alignment at minimum. The steering felt "loose" and I felt a lot of drifting as I drove. I've read that the Safe-T-Plus is a popular mod to the Axis so I'll be reading more about that. This forum has been a wealth of information during our years long decision making process & I hope to contribute as we learn more about our new Axis. Thanks for all the great info!

I just had the Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer installed, along with Koni shocks, and I was very impressed at the improvement.

That is a nice toolkit as a starter. Kind of funny, though, as that is an admission from the dealer that you'll need it! LOL

Congratulations, looks great.

LOL! Now that's funny... and probably pretty accurate!

Glad to hear of the improvement. Will add Koni shocks to my list to research. Thanks!

Congratulations on your new coach!!! You must have bought at MSHRV, I got a toolkit identical to yours when we purchased our coach there, nothing great, but handy to have on the road! Hope you never need to use it!

Look for Ed's manual here on the forum. I've read thru Ed's manual even though we don't have an Axis, VERY well done, LOTS of very useful information, I would suggest you download it for future reference!

Enjoy yourselves!

Thank you. Yes, we did buy from MHSRV. Hard to beat their prices, especially being so close to them. I downloaded Ed's manual awhile back and it's a fantastic resource! I'll be getting very familiar with it I'm sure!
