Review of Lippert Components Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Equalizers - LC1565401

Today we're going to take a look at the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension upgrade for triple axle suspensions. Now more than 85% of all the semi tractors that are out on the road today, they do have some kind of air- ride suspension like this. So you should think that maybe your towable RV should have that same kind of suspension or ride, and the answer is yes because you can now do it affordably using this system here.This is a center point air-ride suspension system. This will add the air-ride suspension to any RV or horse trailer. It will dramatically improve the ride and towing experience with the four airbag units that'll absorb road shock and reduce four and a half trailer movement known as chucking. These dual airbags' absorption replaces your standard trailer suspension. more

Shane: Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today I'm going to walk through how I installed the Dexter E-Z Flex triple axle equalizers on our 2006 Jayco fifth wheel trailer. Adding new equalizers like this to your kit or upgrading them from your factory ones is going to make your ride a lot more comfortable. You'll notice in the center it's going to have a rubber boot. That's going to take up a lot of the absorption that your factory ones don't have.The difference between our factory ones and our new ones, is you'll notice there are two different pieces. Our factory one is one solid piece of steel. more

Review of Lippert Components Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Cushioned Equalizers - LC145546

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and today we're going to be taking a look at the Equa-Flex cushioned equalizers. These are going to help to improve the overall ride from your trailer. Equalizers, as you may know, are going to help to distribute the weight so that it's not all falling on one axle or the other. It's going to help to provide a pivot point for those leaf springs and our axles so that everything can move around properly.As you're going down the road, if you hit any bumps, one axle might raise up and that can cause the load to shift onto that single axle that's still on the ground so this is going to help to level that out and make sure that everything rides smoothly.These are going to help in addition by having this rubber bumper in place, which is going to provide even smoother ride and also provide some shock absorption and it's going to minimize the chucking or the back and forth movement that you typically get in your trailer. That's also going to help to protect your cargo on your trailer or inside your enclosed trailer to make sure that it's not rattling around and getting tousled as you're going down the road.These are going to have greasable pivot points for easy lubrication. more

Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers Installation - 2017 Grand Design Solitude Fifth Wheel

Hi there fifth-wheel owners. Today on your 2017 Grand Design Solitude we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install Roadmaster's Comfort Ride Shock Absorber Kit for tandem axles.This is what our shock absorbers are going to look like when they're installed. Typically trailers don't have any shock absorbers, just leaf springs. These springs are a old school traditional suspension type system that does allow the axles to move separately from one another so that way you'll have good contact on the road when you're hitting uneven surfaces and when turning, but they don't really offer a whole lot as far as dampening. So a lot of that road shock is going to transfer from the road through your leaf springs up into your trailer, which can result in a lot of negative vibration that could potentially damage components and wear out the life of your trailer.It's a universal bolt on system, so it's going to be great for your larger trailers such as your fifth wheels, your toy haulers, and in your car haulers. The shock in the middle will absorb a lot of road vibrations and any sudden impacts you might have from potholes, minimizing the transfer of that energy up through the trailer inside. more

The independent action of this suspension reduces roll when your trailer's cornering, and allows you to maximize ground clearance, and minimize deck height. Your trailer can have the same side to side clearance as your tow vehicle. And of course, the low deck height makes it easy to load cargo from either the rear or the side.Now, because you're riding on rubber, your trailer will ride smoothly, and comfortably, whether you're navigating a rocky terrain or a highway asphalt. This suspension system provides a nice safe, smooth, quiet ride for your trailer. Has two separate units here that will replace your existing axle. more

Jake: Hey, guys! It's Jake here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to show you how to install the Dexter Easy Flex system. This is going to allow you to put a new equalizer in to be able to give you a nice, smooth ride compared to that stock equalizer that'll have come on your trailer.This Dexter equalizer is going to upgrade your equalizer for a smoother ride while the rubber core is going to minimize the back-and-forth movement of your trailer and helps to absorb some of that road shock. Now, what I like about this system is that it's going to differ in two different ways from your factory system. It's going to have that rubber bumper to absorb the shock from the road, so it doesn't transfer through the trailer and into the cab of your vehicle.You're also going to have wet bolts connecting all your moving parts with nice, handy grease zerks on the outside so that you can keep all your moving parts well-lubricated.

Today we'll be taking a look at the triple-axle trailer equalizer kit for two-inch slipper springs. Our equalizers are going to take out some of that brunt of force whenever we're going down the road and you hit a bump. Typically, one of your axles would be in the air and then the rest of the weight would be coming down fully on the remaining axles. This helps to distribute that weight, so we don't have any one axle getting overloaded. That helps to maintain better longevity with our axles, make sure that we don't overload any components of our system, and it also helps to make our ride more comfortable in our vehicle while we're towing down the road.Our kit comes with the four equalizers. These are a swan-shaped equalizer that measures 10-1/8 inch, and that's going from the center of the shackle bolt hole here at the end to this little fin that comes up on the top. more

Once our trailer's down on the ground, these are going to make contacts right there at the bottom of the frames. So whether our trailer's completely unloaded or fully loaded, we're going to get a lot of great benefits. These are designed to be compressed. As you can see, they're kind of flexible there, made of a microcellular urethane. When the trailer comes down, it's just going to have a little bit of help on the lighter loads, but the more and more that we compress this, so as our load gets heavier, we're going to get a firmer and firmer feel from our spring. more

Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System Test Course

Speaker 1: Now, let's take a look at our conventional Lee Spring suspension versus our Timbren suspension. As you can see, there's a lot less movement.

Now, let's take a look at our Axle-Less suspension system as we go out through our test course. You can see as we're hitting the different bumps, you're not seeing as much movement as what we're used to with the conventional suspension system. more

Roadmaster Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension  - RM-2460 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for tandem axle trailers. This is designed to work with axles from 5200 pounds to 7000 pounds. Now, a typical problem that you'll have with your trailer is that the suspension just doesn't provide a lot of cushion, those steel leaf springs just don't have a lot of give as they're going down the road. It'll prevent you from bottoming out, but it doesn't do anything to prevent side to side movement, front to back, and that jarring porpoising feeling that you can have, especially with heavy loads in your trailer. The Comfort Ride system from Roadmaster is designed to alleviate that problem. It's going to improve your overall towing experience, as it's going to have the shock absorbers to take out all the brunt of that movement in your trailer.Now, the shock absorbers are going to be a heavy duty gas shock, and it's going to provide that more comfortable towing experience. more
