You mean all the way across the whole tube, from one tire to the other is all filled with rubber?

That would be a lot of rubber then to replace! I guess that would be expensive!

I could stand to be corrected but the rubber inside the axle tube does NOT go all the way across from arm to arm. I have never seen them in person but I have seen pictures and they appear to be 24 to 36 inches long each,I think there are 4 on each end.
Because of liability no one rebuilds torsion axles anymore to my knowledge.
Andy from Inland RV at one time had a link to a group of pictures from Henshen Axle which did show the axle rubber in thier frozen state before they were inserted inside the tube. Maybe 2Air or Andy will chime in here and help you find them.
GOOD LUCK
Roger

Replacing the rubber in the tube is not an option, unless you have a manufacturing plant.

Replacement of the entire axle assembly is the fix.

The maintenance for it ....... go camping! Take the trailer out for a drive once or twice a year. It keeps the rubber inside the tube flexible.
