I added a Roadmaster stabilizer to my steering unit on my 2910T. Made all the difference in the world. It really helped to control the steering.  JAS

Has any had a steering stabilizer added to there Ford chassis? PC offered one when I bought my 2400 this spring but I didn't buy one. I have a lot of steering wonder on my E350. I'm thinking about adding one.

Ford should absolutely fix it under warranty. But since you already retrieved the trouble code just poke around the internet for a good knowledge base in case Ford gives you the runaround.

I would recommend buying a Scangauge II. Besides monitoring things like coolant and transmission temperature, mpg, rpm, etc., it will also display trouble codes.

Hopefully you don't have a mouse chewing up your wiring or vacuum hoses.

We recently sold our 2014 Tiffin 36LA (gas - Ford V10) and the check engine light appeared during the new owner's delivery drive (oops!).  Anyway, the problem ended up being
a loose connection on air intake sensor.  We re-seated the sensor connection and it hasn't appeared since then.

Or you could load some lead ingots under the side bed. :lol. Back to reality.  I installed  the Koni shocks myself but I understand that PC will install them during  production. I prefer Koni shocks over Bilstein because Koni's dampen both ways, in and out (or retract and extend; or up and down) and yes, I thought they made for a smoother ride. (This will reopen the Bilstein/Koni debate) To really add to the confusion , I traded my 2351 in for a 2552 with the 6 inch extension with the longer beds. This has to be the best riding RV I owned. It isn't air ride but better than the 2351 and the Born Free 27 side bed I had before. Hope this helps.

Well I found  an original Travasak for our 2350 and it is great !! If you have a 2350 or 2351 and struggle with putting sheets on the corner bed this thing is fantastic! I was concerned the queen size set might be too wide for the 50" bed but it's super comfortable and DW is happy too  because  it's perfect for sharing !! If RVSuperbags remained faithful  to the original Travasak design then  2o2 for that  too.

I change our oil once a year, wether it needs it or not.  ;)

Just adding one more thought comparing model 2350 and 2351.  The 1 foot extra length of a 2351 is 100% added by increasing the wheel base via stretching the frame, therefore model 2351 should handle a bit better.  Also the weight distribution should be a little better too, placing more weight on the front suspension.  The question is... Are the two minor differences going to make the rig handle noticeably better?  JJCruiser, one day you will be the person with the answer.

A comforting thought...
If you go with the E450 and it rides as rough as an empty box truck, you could always change the front springs to a lesser rated pair, and remove a leaf spring or two in back to soften the ride.  So there is a reasonable solution if your decision wasn't the right one.  Because of that, I favor the E450 too.

Thanks everyone for your input.  I did not even think about gas mileage.  I will ask Barry about the rear axle ratio when we are at the factory on Friday.

Ron, your comments about differences in weight distribution on the 2350 and 2351 make sense to me.  You may recall that I made all the suspension improvements to my 2007 2350 as you did with yours.  I really like the ride and handling of the RV after those upgrades, I am just hoping not to take any steps back in ride/handling by upgrading to a 2351.  I guess I can always make the same improvements (trac bar, sway bars, etc) to the 2351 if needed, but I don't know how I would fix a harsh ride if that turns out to be true for an E450 version.  I am encouraged by Keelhauler's reply that he did not notice a difference between the E350 and E450.

Ron-n-toni,  Thank you for the recommendation to the E-450, I think I am leaning that way.  Did you have the factory install the Koni FSB shocks or did you do it afterwards?  I am curious if you have a before and after comparison with the shock upgrade?

Thanks again,

Also try a couple of tanks of Hi-test gas. It will hurt $ wise in Canada. Fords are known for O2 sensor problems. It is a spark plug looking thing in the Exhaust pipe just below the exhaust manifold. You will have two, one on each side before the pipes join in front of the Catalytic converter. Premium gas (Hi-test in my day) will sometime cure the problem.
