Canoe stream,

I think you're looking for the serial number tag correct?

Typically, these tags are located on the main tube body of the axle. I know Dexter and Axis locate these tags on the center of the axle beam facing the front of the coach. They usually contain the following information:
1. Axle Manufacturer
2. Axle Manufacturer address
3. Axle serial number
4. Axle capacity
5. CSA approval (if built to CSA spec)

Older axles used a serial number band, embossed and wrapped around the axle tube. Some manufacturers also stamped numbers into the axle tube itself.

I hope this helps,

PS: This info is required for any warranty work required on the axle. The industry standard torsion axle warranty is 5 years from date of purchase. Additionally it is of great help when seeking replacement parts.

From what I understand Henschen has been certified for the past 20+ years, not very recently as mentioned in post 39 above.

Bob, my '73 has Henschens on it (still to be replaced). The I.D. Tag is located on the front of the axels, curbside, about a foot inboard from the wheel. FYI.

I was just in touch with a tech at Airstream about a week ago, and he said that Airstream has changed to Dexter Axles a few yrs. ago,although he didn't indicate when the change occured.
