Took the Tracer 3150 in for SPIN balancing

I took my Tracer 3150BHD into NTB and had them spin balance all four tires. Who knows if it will make a difference, its a least a check box in the peace of mind category.

When I took it in, it was a Monday and mid morning so there was little to customer traffic and they got me in right away. The Manager came out and was initially stumped, but they had me back into the garage entrance so they could use the power tools, they brought out a large jack and knocked it all out in less than 40 min. It was pretty cool!

I find the location they choose to jack up the 3150 interesting. Good to know.

Me too. RV Guy, is that a good place? Just in case we have to change one on the road.

I too thought that was interesting, but when you look for space to put that plate, it would crush lines or be to far away. I watched me jack it up and it looked solid. They (NTB) did a great job!

We think putting the jack on the bottom of the I-Beam would be better but recognize that some situations might require for it to be jacked up as shown in the picture.

Not preferred, but acceptable.
