I have a few destinations were the rear of the trailer bottoms out upon entering. I would like some advice if this can be done. I'm looking for 2-4 inches increase.
With the style axle you have there is not a "good" way to do this. The mount points are vertical plates right against the belly. If you extended the plate it will give the axle more leverage on the mounting point. It would be guestionable if they would be able to handle the extra stress. That would force you to add some sort of cross bracing to the mounting points.
That axle is prone to sag with age. It's quite possible the axle has settled as much as 2 inches. There were several post about this and I think most predate the forum crash. Andy from Inland RV had made comment on how to inspect he axles and figure out if they had indeed sagged.
