Hello!

Actually I'm not replying to this post but as a new comer into the forum, I just want to say hello to you old folks.


Thanks

All fine and dandy, but how much does your trailer weigh?

Let the transfer began.  7000# axles with the electric over hydraulic brakes and ez-flex suspension going over to the new mother ship. New mother ship 6K axles and standard electric brakes going over to the old mother ship.  They will be good enough to get the old trailer to a lake some where and set her down on some cinder blocks for a nice lake home.  Got it's own power.   ;D

On a bitter note! I was floored when I seen the wet shackle bolts that come out of the ez-flex suspension system that has only been in the trailer since 2013 Oct.  Completely worn out.  Bolts and bushings.  I greased that system before every trip to be sure it would last.  Every manufacture has them on back order until July.  Just happen to find a set on E-Bay, should be here next Tuesday. 

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Those wet bolts lasted less time than the bushings.  I was going to possibly upgrade but not now. Save my money and waste it on a more fun toy.

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
