Well, i drove the TH 6 hrs to Eclipse a few weeks ago for the axle issue. I have to say, they were very eager to find out why the axles were bending. Cant say the same about Lipert. They told Eclipse they were on there own. So, Eclipse is replacing the axle's with 7k axle's. So, they are replacing 3 axle's, 6 tires and rims, and reinforcing a few things with the suspension. Hopefully i will be a "happy camper" when all is said and done and i can take a trip without KNOWING i have to take it back into the shop when we get home.
Thanks for all the info. The tires say to run a max 80psi cold. I run 75psi cold. The TH is a 2013 Attitude 39TSG 3-axle. We made it down to Johnson Valley but, we were 15 miles from home when the rt rr tire blew. Come to find out when they replaced the rear axle and Trail America tires. They installed 235/85 r16, E-load. The other 4 tires are 235/80 R16 E-load. The tires they installed only had 860 miles on them before it blew. Trail America is made by a Co. called Treadit. They were very helpful. They are sending 3 new tires out. Once i get the tires installed the TH is heading down to Eclipse in Riverside. Not to happy with Eclipse. And maybe its just MY TH but, we've had it for a year. Used it 8 times and every time we use it it ends up in the shop. Not once have we been able to come home from a trip and just put it away issue free!! I hope by taking it to Eclipse i wont have any more issues!! LOL. We've towed it approx 5400 miles, 1444 mi of that was to take it in for repairs!! Sorry for the rambling. Had to vent.
It's not always people. Last year we started to pull out from fueling up and the trailer brakes locked up. I got out and checked everything. The last thing i checked/expected was for the pin to be removed. I noticed the cable that is connected to the pin was wedged between the king pin and hitch. I now make sure the cable is secured away from the king pin and hitch contact surface. Good thing we were'nt on the Hwy!!!!!
We bought a new 3-axle TH 5er March, 2012. It's my first 3-axle. I dont make sharp turns or run over curbs to throw the axle's outta wack. But, the outside and inside of the front and rear axle tires are showing good signs of wear and will have to be replaced in the near future. I know that 3-axle's are known for dragging those axle tires. It's a long shot but, just wanted to find out if anyone knows how to get more life outta 3-axle tires OR am i looking to replace tires every 1 1/2- 2 years???
