I've not been up to this point; maybe I should start.

The way they are attached to the end of the ram allows for a good bit of swivel/tilt, however.

Boowho??


P.S. I just notice your home location. I just sold my place in Hardscrabble Canyon on hwy 96 between Westcliffe and Wetmore.

Went to Lowes and they had pre cut plywood circles about 16" across (1/2 plywood) glued and screwed two together and attached a rope handle on them. Even use them when parked on a pad, if anything else will keep the water off them when it rains and runs under the HM. Might even paint them one of these days when not busy.

Had that discussion earlier today and they are going to replace all four pads with the new reinforced one. Jaymie said that they tested the new ones to over 12K lbs before punching through.

With that much beef up hopefully I've seen it for the last time.

MANY thanks to Equalizer Systems!!!

Does anyone know the correct part number for the replacement pad? Equalizer systems web site is not very clear on which one to order. As you can see from my signature, I have a 2008 390bh.
Plootsa- I pm'd you on this as well.
Thanks.
Tom

Tom, when I called EQ Sys on this all he needed from me was the year and model of the coach. I understand that only make one model of jacks for ALL the FR coaches.

Boowho??

boo,
When I called Equalizer, the girl I spoke to said that I needed to go out and measure the pistons on the coach (length and diameter) and then go to a chart they have and see what the part numbers for the pads were before she could order them for me. I had to have her order them because the part numbers on their chart didn't match any on their web page. I hope that I got the measurements correct and that I get the correct part. That is why I was asking about the part numbers for the pads.
Tom

Boowho - When you receive the replacement pads, please post the part number from the box so we know the right one to order. Thanks

AArrrrrGG! They were replaced about a month ago and the packaging was pitched. Funny the girl is making you jump thru all these hoops. As soon as I mentioned it was a FR coach, the GUY knew exactly which ones I needed.

Tell the GIRL it's the ones that keep failing and had to be beefed up. Hopefully, she won't say "all of them keep failing".

I'll see if I can find his name.

Boowho??

Boo,
Did you deal with a Jason Woonts (sp?) at Equalizer? Also, was the part number of the pad that you received no.3151? The pads on my jacks look like no.7821. They are round with splines coming out of the center. Also, my current pads are of a very heavy metal. If you could let me know what part number pad you received I would appreciate it.
Thanks,
Tom
ps- I am going to pm you about this incase you don't look at this thread for a while.

For all who might need this info.... I THINK the contact guy that helped me was named Mike Lehman. I'm old, but I THINK that was his name. Maybe spelled Layman.

Second, the picture on their web site for PN 7818 LOOKS LIKE what they sent to me. Hopefully, when they beefed them up, they kept the same PN.

Can't tell from the pic whether it's a single or double layer of steel plate. But what I had and what I got, look like 7818; but the new ones are twice as thick.

Boowho??
