Sway Control Bracket Problem
I have a Reese Cam sway control on my trailer. The cam brackets mount to the bottom of the trailer frame and are secured by 2 self tapping bolts in the outside and a single bolt on the inside to help stabilize it, Here's my problem . . . the outside bolt on one side have stripped out and do not support the bracket flush to the frame the way they should. I cannot replace them with a larger self tapping bolt and I think my only option is to drill through the frame and run a long bolt all the way through and secure it to the other side of the frame.
My question is, will this excessively weaken the frame or is there another option I am overlooking. I thought about have a shop weld the bracket but that would make is too permanent.
Any advice would be appreciated.
