Squeaky Fifth Wheel Suspension
« on: June 09, 2017, 12:41:52 PM »
My fifth wheel suspension squeaks.  This morning I rolled underneath it and sprayed the pivot points with garage door lube.

What do you use?

I use the wet bolts and apply grease thru the fittings.  I use Fluid Film to spray on the leaf springs, it penetrates the plys and prevents rust.

There have been a couple of recent strings about shackle bolts with completely worn nylon bushings - or worse!  A more thorough inspection may be advised.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.
