frame separation

Andy,

Attached are photos of what I think is the frame separation that the RV place has told me that needs fixing. Cost estimate about 37 hundred. 2 heavy duty steel plates to be used in the midsection of the trailer.

Please comment. BTW will be driving trailer to your location as soon asap.

Not a chance.

The frame and axle mounting plates are pulling apart, because they were not properly welded together every 2 or 3 inches.

Heat the metal, clamp it back together, then add some beads of weld, and that problem is over for life.

That spreading apart is also related to lack of proper running gear balance and/or axles that have rubber rods in them that have given up, which causes the trailer to bottom out when hitting bumps.

Emil.

That dealership, must write comedy for television.

No way, what they said.

Read my post as to what caused the problem, and how it's fixed.

Hello 1965Safari Hope you enjoy your "new toy". If you ever need any professional help....... Woodland, the AS dealer in Grand Rapids is outstanding, in my opinion. Who knows, someday our paths might cross.......We live in Jenison, MI
