What size pin?

Good morning,

Once again I have been screwed by my wonderful friends at Camping World. They replaced the front landing gear on my 2011 Cardinal 3150rl and instead of installing a pin, they installed a bolt. That bolt has since sheared off. I am looking for a replacement pin, but cannot find the size. I called LCI the maker of the system and they were no help. Please, can any of you help? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

not sure of size , but i be calling the "smart ppl" at CW ask why a bolt instead of a Pin. Can't fix stupid, but if u put in an application to work at CW u get a job. I made mistake by buying a rv from CW.

Can you post a pic of that pin or where it should go? Are you talking about the pin for the foot piece adjustment holes?

Wouldn't a tape measure work? Or use the sheared bolt (or other extra bolts you have) as a guide?

I would use a caliper to measure the hole size and size the pin accordingly. If you do not have one, these are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased from Amazon or an auto parts store. Wood working stores also sell them which I have purchased from them for my needs.

Now the pin might be a shear pin to prevent damage to the motor if this is on the cross shaft to power both legs down and up. I had always carried a spare for my Cougar front legs as the pin had failed once in the past so, I would be prepared if this happened again.

What pin are you talking about?
A picture is worth... well... you know.

If you are talking about the shear pin in the cross shaft between the landing gear, you'll need to purchase a new roll pin the necessary size. Different landing gear are different.

Don't be too quick to chastise CW if they used a bolt. There are such things as shear bolts and if it broke, maybe your landing gear is binding or YOU are running it too far up. (or down)

If you are talking about the snap pins to raise/lower the feet, something drastic must have happened for it to shear off.

Give us something to go on and we'll try to help.

Are you asking about the landing gear pin, these come in a few different sizes most are 3/8 in.
see below and then search for the different sizes.
