5th Wheel connection
Can anyone tell me the torque specification of all the bolts at the King Pin area. This past Friday coming home from Pigeon Forge, Tn somewhere between Ashville NC and Greensboro NC on a newly looking bridge in the fast lane running around 65mph traffic bumper to bumper I notices a rise in the bridge platform. Tall enough that I said holy Sh*t. I could not react but hold on for dear life. the back wheels came off the ground. I know something had to have broken. Then I had to fight for another 10 miles just to get off the road to inspect. I had drawers in floor, golf cart move out of position and that's with it strapped down and secured, I had a mess. I didn't know who to call or report it to. I'm going to notify insurance tomorrow to have something on record. But anyway I was inspecting the area of the King Pin and I noticed the overall bracket moved about a 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch. So I feel like I need to retorque the bolts. Does anyone know how much. OR, should I be doing something else as far as structural damage. I don't see anything noticeable to the naked eye. But I'm listening if someone has something to say.
