RE: Anti roll bars for fifth wheel with air ride.

Separate lines and gauges would centrally work. Check valves would only let you put air in and not out if you needed to. The system works great to keep the trailer and things inside from bouncing around. I would do it again in a heart beat on any trailer. Thanks for all the feedback.

Anti roll bars for fifth wheel with air ride.

After installing Lippert center point air ride I noticed the trailer rolling a lot more in the corners and particularly with a cross wind. The way the system is set up, the air bags are interconnected, which allows them to bleed air from one side to the other. This tends to let the trailer roll even more in a long turn or strong cross wind. I was wondering if anyone has installed or even seen anti roll bars for trainer axles. They are common place on tow vehicles, both front and back.

RE: Sliding Hitch

Thanks Bionic Man for the link. I visited the PullRite web site and looked at the owners manual to see what kind of mechanical things are going on to get this to work. Well... there are a lot. As promising as this looks, the maintenance schedule is grueling. Every day of use you must lube the plastic wear plates after cleaning them. It is "normal" for the plastic wear plates to wear the zinc from the slide bars. Then they will rust and scoring will occur, they say this is "normal". But before next use you should sand the rust off, clean and lube them once again. They recommend disassembling the hitch once a month to lube the pivot bolt with axle grease. You know they say, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. I think this is one of those. I suppose you could not do any of this and just take it in once a year and have all the parts replaced. IMHO this is just to much work, just so I don't have to pay attention when backing up.

RE: Sliding Hitch

I have a 2005 Ford short bed with the pin over the axle. The 5er is a 2008 Sundance with the long pin box that is designed for short beds and also has the corners of the nose cap radius in. I don't even get close to my back window, but yes you do have to pay attention. I can't get around to 90 degrees with the trailer, but i can get about 80 degrees. I have never seen an automatic slider. So some are suggesting that when you start backing in, it "automatically" slides back? Or is it just actuated from inside the cab. Because if you have to get out of the truck, that is not very automatic.

RE: Leveling chocks

I tried the Camco plastic, broke two the first time on them. Went back to my 2" X 8". Now just use the Camco's under the levelers.
