Frame & Axle Brands
I got under my SV 263 yesterday to check what kind of axle that I have in preparation for wheel bearing lubrication. It seems like a lot of the Forest River products come with the Al-Ko torsion axles, and thought I would have the same.......not. My torsion axle is manufactured by Lippert Components Inc......and I thought they just made frames and slides. Besides that, my frame was manufactured by Dexter.....which is known for axles. Geez.
So, it seems that I have Lippert axles on a Dexter frame. Everything seems to work great, but this discovery was a surprise to me. Just wondering what setup other Surveyor and Forest River owners have on their rigs.
