This way, the axles could possibly contact the frame. Just a thought.

Yep. The axle is above the spring. I talked with the "axle guy" at Lippert this week. He was very helpfull. He sold me a equilizer that will give me an extra two" I asked him why Forest River would build a trailer with the axles so close to the frame. He grunted something and then told me the parts I needed. The parts were only $8.00 + shipping. Thanks for of the thoughts on this matter and sorry it takes me so long to ansure I drive a truck and I'm gone all week. Tim

Hey don't apologize! we appreciate the fact that you're supplying this info to all those out there who may be experiencing the same thing.

So does Lippert build the frame/chassis? I knew they did slideout and levelling systems, but didn't realize they do the chassis.

yep lippert builds almost all of forest river frames. but only to forest rivers specifications.


i had an occasion last year to speak directly with a lippert person.
WOW what fantastic customer service, they were ready to put a guy on a plane and come help me out with my modifications

cant say enough about how helpful they were.
36rlst really should be sporting a pari of 7k axles vice 6ks

I had a similar experience with them, getting service manuals for slide systems. REally good service.

OK. Lippert sent me 2 new equalizer's. 4" lift witch is apx two more than what was on it. I have know idea why they would let it leave the factory the way it was but they did. Brian Gigi is the guy to talk to at Lippert if you have any issues like this. $3.99 each wasn't bad but I got mine for free because they didnt ship them the first time I ordered them. Took me about two houres to put them on but it's one of them jobs where you don't know the easy wayto do it untill your all done. So far I gota give Lippert a gold star for there help. Tim
