Equal-i-zer parts

Does anyone know if there are any vendors of Equal-i-zer parts in or near Ludington, Michigan? I pretty much straightened one of my L-pins (the part which holds the spring arm to the L bracket) for my Equalizer 4-way yesterday.

Thanks, Larry. I will probably end up using those links to pick up an extra or two. However, I'm camping now and was hoping to find a seller with the item in stock around Ludington so I don't need to use the damaged item on the way home.

DKRITTER - just normal wear & tear, I guess. My L pins have been slowly deforming from the stresses for three seasons and finally got too ugly to recognize the "L" after arriving and backing in here at Ludington State Park yesterday. I might be wrong, but I assume the pins are made of softer metal so they bend or break before the more permanent components of the hitch. Must be that much of that popping & cracking noise you here from the Equalizer in campgrounds are the groans of the L pins doing their job. New set from Fun N Sun RV for $17 and I'm all set to keep on towing.

When I had my Equal-I-Zer on my previous TT, I always unhooked the bars before backing up. I know it says you don't HAVE to, but I found the camper was easier to back up, and those God-awful noises weren't there with the bars out. Good luck!
