How to Install the Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer on a 2019 Winnebago Adventurer Motorhome

Today on our 2019 Winnebago Adventurer motor home, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer with Mounting Brackets. Having a motor home can be a really fun thing and we can enjoy it a lot. We can go places we've never been before, spend time with our family, go camping, or anything like that, but at the same time, it can be really stressful and even scary at times because our motor home, it's a rather big vehicle, and there's a lot of area here for the wind to catch. So, when we're driving down the road, it may feel like we're getting pushed around, and the body starts to lean and roll, especially when a semi drives past us, or we hit a big crosswind.So, before we put any of our suspension components on, let's take it on our test course and see how it handles. As I bring my motor home through the slalom course, I can definitely feel a lot of body roll going on, like it almost wants to lean before it starts to turn. Coming in and out of the turns, it really feels like I need to slow down so I don't lose too much control, and it's just kind of an unnerving feeling.

As I'm going through the bump course, you can definitely feel every single one. The alternating bumps is really throwing me side to side, and the rebound on them is a little unnerving, and I'm really just having to fight the steering wheel the entire way.But now that everything's on, let's go ahead and take our motor home back on our test course and see how it handles now. As I'm driving through the slalom course here, I can immediately tell the difference. I can relax a lot more. I feel a lot more in control of the motor home, and really, it doesn't roll as much.

It just feels a lot more planted on the ground, and it's a lot easier to maneuver in and out of the turns.Over our bumps course, don't get me wrong, the bumps, you can definitely feel them, but the motor home is definitely reacting more quickly and are getting back to that neutral position rather than continuing to bounce a whole lot. Overall, our motor home just feels a lot more stable. It's a lot more comfortable to drive, and going over the bumps and in and out of the turns, it's not rolling as much, and it definitely just feels more solid.So, here's what our steering stabilizer looks like once we have it installed. When we're driving our motor home, we might feel a gust of wind push us around, and then we end up fighting that steering wheel. This is going to reduce that amount a lot because it's going to constantly want to bring the motor home back to center.

It's going to do that because one end is going to attach to the tie rod, and the other end is going to attach to the frame on the bottom of the axle here, and this spring is going to extend or retract depending on which way we go, and it's naturally want to go back to center.Installation is going to be straight-forward. It's going to come with all the hardware necessary to get it in place, and we're not going to have to modify our motor home in any way. There's no drilling or cutting involved at all, and one of the best things is we can do it with all four tires still on the ground. So, now that we've seen what it looks like, we've gone over some of the features, let's put it on together.To begin our installation, I want to mention that we do have the front lifted up using the leveling jacks, but you want to make sure you have wheel chocks and stands underneath to make sure nothing is going to move or fall down. Well, we'll start out by coming to the passenger side on the front axle, and on the back side, we'll find the U-bolts that are holding our leaf spring in place.So, we're going to grab a 1-1/8 inch socket, and we're going to remove these two nuts.

Now, you want to make sure you take the ones off the back of the axle when you loosen these up. Now, when you remove these, you want to hold onto the washer and the nut because we will be reinstalling all this hardware. So, grab the chassis bracket out of our kit. It'll have three holes in it. One oblong elongated hole, a large round one, and a small round one.We want that oblong hole to be towards the outside of the tire, and we want this single hole that's kind of protruding out, we want that to be towards the center, but pointing back. So, we'll line up all the other holes, and that should slide right around the U-bolt. Then take our flat washer and our nut. We can reinstall the hardware that we just took off. Grab our 1-1/8 inch socket again, and we're going to snug these up. Now, when you tighten these down, you do want to alternate so that it'll clamp down on that bracket evenly and it won't get in a bind.Now we're going to grab our tie rod bracket. We'll have four kind of oblong holes and a single round hole on it. For now, we're just going to take our tie rod bracket. We're going to sit it right on top of our tie rod with that single round hole pointing towards the back. Then we take our U-bolts from our kit, and we're going to come from the bottom. So, it'll go around the tie rod, and it'll come through the opening on the top of the bracket. We'll follow up each one of the studs with a washer and a nylon lock nut.We'll get our other U-bolt and put it on the other side of the bracket as well. You just want to leave everything really loose right now, just enough to where it'll hold on, and we can still move the bracket around and not have to worry about dropping it. Again, just make sure they're hand-tight. Then we'll rotate our bracket so that the single hole is pointing towards the front, and the U-bolts are going on top of our tie rod.Then we come back to the chassis bracket. We're going to grab one of our 1/2 inch bolts. We'll drop it down from the top going down. We'll grab a flat washer. We're going to slide that up over the bolt. We'll grab our steering stabilizer, and we want the end that's farthest away from the spring itself. You're going to pass that up. You want to grab a flat washer and a lock nut, and you want to make sure that the flat washers are on either side of the steering stabilizer around the bushings. We're just going to loosely secure it with that lock nut so we know it's not going to fall off.We'll take our steering stabilizer, and we're going to loosely just kind of sit it on top of the bracket. I'm going to pass my bolt through my tie rode bracket. You want to make sure you put a flat washer right on the bolt, and we'll lift up the steering stabilizer, pass the bolt through, put our flat washer on top, and secure it down with a nylon lock nut. So, we'll come back to the frame bracket, and using a 19 millimeter wrench and socket, I'm going to snug these bolts up.Then I'll grab a 19 millimeter wrench and socket. I'm going to snug up the 1/2 inch bolts that are holding each end of our stabilizer. Now, you kind of want to hold it up to where it will be nice and level, and then snug it up on each end. Now, on this end it probably is going to move because those U-bolts are still loose. That's okay, but again, whenever we tighten it, we want to try to get it as flat as we can. Then for our U-bolts, I'm going to use a 9/16 socket to tighten those up, and when you start tightening them up, you want to alternate going back and forth, so we get an even clamping force and it doesn't bind up.Again, you kind of want to hold it with your hand so that it's nice and flat as we're tightening it. I'm going to come back with a torque wrench. I'm going to torque all my hardware down in the specified amount in the instructions. And you want to repeat that for any remaining hardware that you have. With everything torqued down, we can lower our motor home back on the ground, and we'll be ready to hit the road. That'll finish up your look at the Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer with Mounting Brackets on our 2019 Winnebago Adventurer motor home.
