I've seen numerous posts around this and other forums about the poor strength of Lippert Spring Hangers, usually it's the rear that goes out first. Unfortunately we had this happen this summer, and thankfully we are all safe and found good help to install brand new ones. However, I have concerns that the like-for-like replacement will just break again in a couple years. So Im interested in reinforcing all 6 spring hangers in our Open Range, potentially with Lippert's V-Braces.
The question is this: Has anyone experienced, seen anywhere on the web or via conversation in any campground, where there was a failure of the spring hanger AFTER getting the V-Braces installed?

This is not answering your question, but my Open Range 5th wheel came with boot hangers and I've noticed that most of their models have the (traditional?) square type hangers, and many of those do fail, especially if equipped with Correct Track.
My boot hangers do have the V-clip and so far, after over 40,000 miles, have been OK-
