RE: Hitch on rear of 5th wheel

I made a hitch for my 5er, I got some large C channel that I bolted to the existing channel at the rear with 5 grade 8 bolts. I ran that through the fiberglass of the trailer and use a truck hitch that I extended. I cut square holes in the channel and ran the extended hitch through the C channel and welded it up. I have a basket on it that I carry a 3000 watt Yamaha and for one trip adde a bike rack to hold 3 bikes.Traveled many miles and all is good. http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_IMG_20130730_132458_512.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/5th%20wheel%20Sea%20Breeze/th_IMG_20130418_112233_397.jpg

RE: Superglide Install

Installed mine myself. I drilled a small hole first to see if it was on center, then drilled the big hole to compensate. Was fairly straight frward. I did run into a glitch though with my airbag mounts trying to clamp over the hitch plates. They use the same section of frame. We got the Superglide in on my boys 2013 Ford F150 then the next day we went and trimmed the bracket for the air bag mounts and weld them to the superglide bracket at the same location that they should be and was a simpler job then we expected. they are the 2500lb bags not the 5000lb and they do the trick.

RE: Superglide Install

how difficult is it to get the head aligned lets say at the extreme condition of 90 degrees? I have one occasion that I can run into this problem where the camping sites are parallel.

RE: Black Tank Explosion

http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_2013-09-24161724.jpg]weld is working not pretty but wanted it strongIf the trailer is new enough to replace the tank that is the way to go. IF NOT THEN it can be plastic welded. I could not find a close replacement for my 2000 Sea Breeze so I took an old big soldier iron that my dad gave me and welded on a stainless plate and soldier up the 115 gallon tank that was split at the seam. http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_2013-09-25093722.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_2013-09-24161724.jpg

RE: Superglide Install

I have done two mine was the first and it went smooth and took about 3.5 hrs and that included the air bags. the second was for my boys 2012 ford F150 that one took about the same time for the hitch and that thing is a monster 12k with a longer throw because of the very short bed. was harder then for my Dodge with the 6.5 ft. bed 16k. we put air bags in his the following day. they don't fit, the brackets are in the way. we had to trim the airbag bracket down and then we welded them to the SG bracket and they then worked perfect not a real do it yourselfer for most.
