Work Done on:
5th Wheel Trailer
We over-retracted our 5th wheel landing gear leg and seized the assembly in the "up" position, shearing a pin in the process. The leg manufacturer (RBW now AL-KO Kober) no longer manufactures parts so buying a replacement leg was out of the question. Phil spent 2.5 hours extracting the jammed assembly, freeing the seized Acme nut with a torch and reassembling everything with a new shear pin. This required getting our trailer off our truck without using the landing gear legs, grinding open factory-welded sub-assemblies, welding a temporary nut onto the screw shaft to aid in breaking the Acme nut loose, and then reassembling and re-welding everything back together.
Evaluation of Service Performed:
From what I saw, I think the job we got ended up being beyond the capabilities of any mobile RV service or most RV repair places. We got the recommendation for this place from a local campground and are very pleased with the outcome-- our landing gear leg works good as new. The work was done quickly and without damage to our, precious, irreplaceable, leg parts or rig.
