Trailer Suspension Repair
Being a realist, I understand that most RV owners do not have the luxury of a shop and tools to repair a trailer suspension. My goal was to show the task and the steps required to repair a broken leaf spring hanger so you can be prepared in the event this happens to you.
This repair can be expensive
It’s not the parts in question, but the labor required to remove the old hanger and protect the undercarriage from the sparks generated from grinding and welding. The new hanger and bolt was $20 total, but I had 4 hours in removing wheels, grinding and welding. So be prepared for a large labor bill if you ever have to face any type of trailer suspension repair.
For Joan and I, the task is done and we’re ready to return to our RV travels. The video below condenses much of the time for the repair, but I show each steps from start to finish.
