Thanks for the info.
Since I am in Houston, TX this week I brought the Never Fail Bushings off the shelf at Holiday World RV
here in Houston.
I did not check the bushings before I brought the new bushings. I made the decision to replace them because of reading about so many other people having problems. I drive lots of miles every year and I don't want them causing a problem on the road. I was really surprised to find that my bushings were in such bad shape after only about 3 months of owning a brand new RV and only 5000 miles.
I have not towed the FW yet. I'm still in Houston. I don't expect any difference in towing but after the bushing are worn out then the shackle bolts start wearing into the metal and then comes the real problem. I plan to leave Houston in a couple days headed to North Carolina and then back down to Brownsville, TX. Lots of miles coming up.
I may buy the wet bolts off eBay
because it's the best price I have found so far and they comes with HD shackles that are 1/2 inch thick instead of the 1/4 inch shackles that are on there now.
You can do a Google for Steve Brown Ministries and see where I'm headed. I don't think the forum rules allow me to post the link.
