Dual Cam Sway Control on Clasic Limited 27FB

I would like to add the Reese Dual Cam Sway Control to my Classic Limited 27FB but there seems to be a couple of issues:

1. The propane line needs to be moved.
2. The wiring harness is inside the tongue frame and I need to drill the frame for the 'self-taping' bolts.

Any suggestions about how to move the propane line and how to drill into the frame without damaging the wires, including how to protect the wires from the bolt once it has been installed, would be greatly appreciated.

When drilling the frame put a limiter on the drill bit that will only allow the bit to just clear the inside of the hole. You are going to have to use at least 3 different bits 1/8 in. 1/4 in and then a final for the selftapping bolts.

If you do not have a limiter you can make them by cutting some small tubing that will clear the outside of the bit and chucking the bit so only 3/16 or so is exposed. Now when you drill the tubing will limit the depth the bit can enter the frame.

Odds are the wires a laying on the bottom flange of the frame and you could not hit them but this will insure that.

The gas line have to be moved just move them and rehang as necessary.

I replaced my brackets yesterday. I examined the holes. There was no sign of the wires. When you move the propane line make sure you plug the old hole for the clamp. Why did I replace my brackets? one of the cam arms broke last year. I had the whole new setup and finally have installed the brackets.
Be careful not to over drive or tighten the bolts. Once the holes are striped they will have to welded closed and re-drilled.
