I'm sorry, did someone provide a link to the anti-sway kit already? Is that the same as our P-30s?

Finished the MaxxFan install today. Had to remove the remains of an old TV antenna and patch the hole first. Other than too much time spent scrapping old Vulcum the install was pretty easy. I like the low profile and the ability to have it open while it's raining.

Cheers, Dan

On these sway bar brakets...I would like to know how they stand up to use after a few trips.
I did this to a Suburban many years ago, to help handling.
Larger bar, poly bushings etc.
The brakets could not handle the force, and tore off near the bolts.
Made some much thicker ones that are working good.... but I was not impressed with the ones that came in kit.

these are heavier than the Original. and they sell allot of these kits. So I sure hope they hold UP.
there is also a good warranty.

Mine have about 10K miles and look fine. I agree the brackets and bolts seem too flimsy for the thickness of bar, but no damage yet.

And this past week I got the new batteries installed. Some of the space between the back of the couch and the road side access doors is now occupied by two MK SL4D batteries, left over from a solar powered radio site. Now there is a battery switch in the regular battery compartment for the two 6V golf-cart batteries in series (stock) or the two 4Ds in parallel, or all at once. With 350 watts of solar panel on the roof and a MPPT controller, this will allow some serious boondocking (computer, radios, CPAP machine at night).
