Hi raspivey,

I finally got under my trailer to see what part number was stamped on the the Torflex axles. I was wrong about the capacity rating in my previous post. The capacity rating stamped on my each of my two axles is 2200 lbs. The part number on each axles is 09H SLR 13.0.

Raspivey, what is the part number and capacity rating stamped on the two Torflex axles on your 2104s trailer?

To anyone else reading this thread that has a 2109s or 2104s Rockwood Mini lite, I would like to know what are the part numbers and capacity ratings stamped on the two Torflex axles on your trailers?

Hi Platokidd,

Thanks for the info about the lift kit from Dexter Axle, that is exactly what I need. I will look into having that lift kit installed when I get back home in Colorado.

I am typing this at the waters edge on the Chesapeake bay in Maryland at my sister in law's house. Plan to head south through the Appalachian mountains to Tennessee and then start heading west and visit my brother who is still farming around Carrier Oklahoma.

Wished I had noticed the holes in the wheel wells before I started this trip.

Might have a lift kit fot you trailer. If they do it should be an easy fix. Check with Dexter. Serge

tire clearance

David. Please send a complaint to the NHTSA. This is trully unacceptable. I sent a complaint in this AM. This is a lack of engineering and quality control. Shame on FR.

Just found this thread. I put my trailer to bed for the winter last week, but didn't check the axles. In September we returned from a 10,000 mile trip on some very rough roads in the Pacific Northwest, NW Canada, and Alaska. So, if we had a clearance design problem, it should definitely have shown up after that trip. Thanks for posting this!

I had the same lack of clearance problem on my Windjammer trailer. Turns out FR installed the wrong axle/bracket combination on my trailer when it was manufactured. From this and other forums it seems that a number of trailers went out the door with poor quality control. FR replaced my axles with ones with taller brackets and fixed the damaged wheel wells under warranty.

I now have over 4 inches of clearance. Dexter recommends a minimum of 3 inches of clearance to allow for the axles to move during dynamic loading. If you do not have at least the 3 inches recommended by the axle manufacturer, I recommend you contact the trailer warranty service department to have the issue resolved.
