RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

To close this story off. I got the new brackets and installed them today. The new brackets where definitely at 90. The photos kind of show how the old ones where well over 90.

RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

Yes I did not get why they said that either. Anyway this is actually my second dual cam setup. My first one was a round bar and now have the titan 17K. Hopefully the new cam kit will square.

RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

Reese is now sending me a new dual cam kit. Was not easy. Had to send proof of purchase and photos of the issue first. And they believe it would not case any issues they way it currently is!

RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

Thanks for all your feedback. I’ll call Reese today. The brackets are the issue. Finally took some photos. Since the cam arms are at different angles I think they are loading one bar more than the other. And yes I have the bars marked L and R!

RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

Yes I’ll call then again. I do have the same one as yours on the right hand side with the welded inside 90. The outside bend is the issue it’s not at 90. The radius is good and is not interfering with the corner of the frame. I also have the nutcerts holding the cam brackets on. My measured tongue weight is1,680 lbs and I have the 1,700 lbs bars.

RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

Get some sheet metal approx the thickness of the rivet heads, make a couple of shims that fit around rivets, and bolt up!! Been using method on 2 different trailers for the past 9 yrs. No problems, PERIOD!!!!! That’s not the issue. The issue is the cam frame bracket is not at 90 and is not sitting flat on the bottom of the frame causing the cam arm to be at an upward angle. I would have to make a tapered shim to correct this.

RE: Reese Dual Cam HP frame brackets

Well to update this I’m having an issue with my cam arms. They are not square to the frame and only have a ware pattern on the inside edge of the cam and the spring bar. After about 2000 miles the spring bar still has paint on the outside 1/2 edge of the V. So it appears my initial concern was valid. I forgot to get some pictures. This the 17K Reese Titan straight line and my actual tongue tongue weight is1680 lbs.

RE: Yamaha EF3000iSE neutral bonding issue - Solved

Its fixed! Turns out that my bonding plug sold copper wire had skinned over and was not passing the voltage as it should. I simply cleaned the wire and got a good torque on the screws inside the plug. Crazy thing is it did pass a continuity test with my meter before I took it apart and the only reason i took it apart was to use it in the socket to measure voltage and polarity when the generator was running.
