I just installed a Safe-T-Plus on our 40 foot DP.  Seems to work well but haven't used it enough in windy conditions to see if it helps with driver fatigue.  That's why I bought it.

Question.  When driving the motorhome the Safe-T-Plus works fine with plenty of clearance.  Driving with air in the tanks, it sits below the fuel tank with enough clearance.  When parked and leveled (air out of bags), the back of the cylinder rubs ever so slightly on the front of the fuel tank. .  I don't think this will be a problem as it is slight but can't find any adjustment in the installation to give more clearance.  I did buy the right kit to fit our freightliner so please don't suggest another kit.   

Suggestions?

I would check with the mfg to see if they have run into this before.  It may be the correct one for the chassis but not for your model of coach.

Good idea.

 

By the way, this sounds like and easy install by the directions. 


I am not a small guy, 6 ft  225.  I had all I could do to get this
installed.  The 2 bolts that I had to take off that held the shock on were torqued so tight that I twisted two of my socket extensions in half trying to get them loose.  I borrowed a 3/4 inch socket set from a friend and still needed a cheater bar on that to get the job done.  With the right tools (meaning heavy duty air tools) it would have been easy.

Called Safety Plus and they took care of the problem.  They said I had the wrong bracket by mistake (I ordered the correct one as stated on their website for my coach).  They shipped it to a local dealer and they installed the correct bracket at no charge to me.  Customer service rated A+ by me.  Now we have nice clearance.  Thanks Safety Plus!
