Being a Ford F53 chassis, there are quite a few mods that can be done to improve the driving and handling of the chassis.

Henderson/SuperSteer know more than almost everyone else. The rear Trac Bar may be very useful on the F53 to prevent the rear end wiggle. RV & Motorhome Replacement Parts - SuperSteer

My dad has a new-to-him 2016 Tiffin Allegro/F53 and he was stunned at how loose the suspension felt compared to his old Trek/Workhorse. He had a set of Sumo springs installed and says that fixed it right up!

Something to consider on an F53 without a bagged suspension.

With the several caveats in that thread, Just telling someone it can be done seems to be asking for trouble. You know how people are.

I know a lot of people who will hear "you can do this," and stop listening.

I feel the thread provides sufficient warnings, I can't protect against stupid; I said perhaps.

Why didn't anyone tell me ....

That the truck's engine has to be running to retract the motorhome's slide-out but cannot be running to retract the awning.

Actually, I am sure that someone told me, but it still took me a few minutes to figure out why the awning wouldn't retract yesterday.
