I Have a source to remanufacture the Kip Valves that are on top and bottom of the accumulator/reservoir of the Howard Power Center steer system. They will cost approx $70 to $75 ea. Anyone interested in a spare? The minimum order is 25 pcs. These valves release pressure from the bladder. when they fail they will leak air pressure causing the compressor to run constantly which will in turn burn up the compressor. I already have a source for the compressor.

Thanks Eddie G

RV.NET is a good place to learn of things for the first time in my case.

Dee Howard made a positive impression it seems on many.

Sounds like the system went into testing about 20 years ago.

It's the best system to date but parts are hard to find if you can find them at all.

hello everyone! I have a Howard steer center used unit minis controller if anyone needs one. some leaks around unit.one valve bad on unit causing unit not to hold pressure. other than that its a good parts unit for someone that needs some parts to maintain or get there howard back up in operation. Boss said to scrap it so i thought i would try and save it for someone that needs it!!

My used coach has a complete system....personally
I have never used it.....probably never will....my coach is a little stiff to steer and requires constant minor corrections......I believe its because of the ram being attached to my tierod which the steering box has to overcome.
I know it cost $3000.00 cause I have all the receipts .
