Been eyeballing one of these for a long time. Finally decided to just do it and buy one....
I dragged the trailer into work today so I could use the forklift to install the new pin. here we go!
I put the trailair box together yesterday on a pallet. Took about 15 minutes to get it all put together.
Off with the old-n-busted
Old-n-busted VS new-hottness
Hooked up and ready to go home
The stock pin weighs about 30 pounds and the trail air weighs about 175 pounds!! I am amazed at how wimpy the stock pin is!
The fork lift was a life saver!! I dont know how we could have man handled the trailair up there without it! Also the 5 foot pipe cheater bar saved my butt too!
I drove up and down the road just to make sure it was all on ok before I leave to head home this evening. So far in the 10 miles I put on it, I am shocked at how much better the ride is! I hit some railroad tracks and the truck bounced over them like it usually does and then I look in the mirror and watch the trailer hit the tracks and see the pin move and did not feel hardly anythying in the truck!
Ill post up when I get home and let you all know how the ride home went.
On my test drive it felt a bit stiff so I let some air out of the pin thinking it would soften the ride. I think that was a bad thing. I felt a bunch of jerking all the way home. I called trail air and told them what happened and they said to add more air and try again. I hope to take it for a ride this weekend and see what happens with more air.
