14 months after we purchased our Surveyor, we had a spring hanger weld fail.
The dealer told us to go away...not under warranty. FR said it was a "Road hazard". Success (that's a loose term) was when I threatened to sue Lippert (LCI) for a faulty manufactured frame. It took 2 months with a welding shop and LCI to finally resolve the issue and get back on the road.
Bottom line, trade it in but the trailer frames are all POS's coming off the same factory line.
Below is the link to my fiasco. If you have any questions feel free to PM me. It's SO FRUSTRATING!!!
Beware: Leaf spring hanger & chassis separation
