Apparently! But I didn't have any Eternabond so I tried what I had handy.

It's a true I beam unlike the cheesy crap under yours.
Don't have any walking beams under mine I have a more sophisticated suspension with shocks and I've towed it more in one yr than you did in 5.

What does the Columbus have suspension wise, if it has springs, it has a walking beam of some sort.

Got the RV out, took her to the house and gave her a bath. Washing the nose the letter "D" came off the word ROCKWOOD, now I have a "ROCKWOO". The remainder of the letters seem pretty tight. I'm Three months out of the 2 year warranty, not sure if FR would do anything or not and frankly I don't care. What I want to do is remove the rest of the decals from the front cap, I'm looking for suggestions on the best way to remove them. The RV not being very old and shaded most of the time in storage may not have much of a ghost yet. When washing it I use car wash soap in a bucket of warm water and a soft brush on a pole, rinsing with the garden hose. The decals have been treated a few time with 303, pressure washing has never happened on this unit. Any suggestion on how to remove the remaining decals? Thanks in advance.
