There are 3 axis that come into play in handling.
Now in simplistic terms:
But, the following will have a big influence on what you need to add and how much is added.
One last thing that RV owners look at is steering wheel correction. A steering stabilizer provides some relief from consistent steering wheel correction. You might consider:
Do you need UltraTrac?
If you answered yes to one or all of the above questions then your RV probably needs UltraTrac. But, before you add any suspension or steering upgrades be sure that you have checked your RV for:
How does UltarTrac work?
UltraTrac attaches the frame rails and either the front or rear axle together. This prevents the independent movement of each.
Which trac bar do I install?
UltraTrac Rear Trac Bar
Installing the rear trac bar first will fix 90+% of the "tail wagging the dog" problem and 18-wheeler push. It will also significantly improve the constant steering correction.
UltraTrac Front Trac Bar
The front trac bar does the same basic function the rear trac bar does. So, why would you need both? Depending on the length of the RV, the weight distribution between the front and rear you still might get some front-end movement and therefore need some additional steering correction.
I installed both and it made a difference on my 37' RV. I also installed a steering stabilizer called Steer Safe. Brazel's offers Safe-T-Plus so why don't I have that installed? I had Steer Safe installed before I became a Brazel's dealer. With both trac bars installed and the steering stabilizer installed I have no real steering issues. No more white-knuckle driving, no more constant steering wheel corrections and no more 18-wheeler push. Driving has almost become boring.
Can I install it?
Yes, but you will need a good set of SAE & METRIC hand tools such as wrenches, 3/8" & 1/2" drive sockets, ratchets, extensions and breaker bar. You will need a torque wrench capable of at least 250 Ft Lbs.
A second set of hands would be nice to have. I have a 1/2" high capacity (625 Ft Lbs) impact wrench that makes the job a whole lot easier and eliminates the need for a second pair of hands. I have done both front/rear trac bar installs with/without the aid of an impact wrench and the air tool route wins hands down.
There is a copy of the front and rear install instructions in the Downloads Section for your review.
Both UltraTrac trac bars have a Limited Life-Time Warranty
