Wildcat Suspension Surprise

Had our brand new Wildcat to a tire dealer to install steel valve stems for the TPMS sensors. An alert mechanic noticed that one of our shackle bolts was not seated in the frame bracket and that there were just a few threads of the bolt into the lock nut. It would have been quite a surprise to have the suspension come apart out on the highway! Anyway, it's at the RV Dealer now for suspension repair.

Its very good this was caught before serious damage occurred. One thing I always do is a pre-trip inspection. I specifically look at everything that could fail or cause problems on the road. I also do a good inspection when I stop to try to locate things that could have changed since last inspection.
Hopefully your repairs will be easy and you will be on your way quickly.
