2001 Jayco wanting to lower axles to lift trailer
« on: May 13, 2014, 01:03:20 PM »
I have a 2001 Jayco 243 RKS fifth wheel.  I would like to raise the trailer 2-3" to achieve a more level ride while towing.  The trailer came with adjustable brackets for the springs and if I move them to the bottom holes, it appears it will give me the lift I need.  It also has shocks attached to the axles also.  The question I have is it possible to adjust the leaf springs into the lower bolt holes with these shocks, or will I have to adjust the shocks also?  Secondly, what is the easy way to do this?  Can I do it by lifting the trailer, removing the wheels, and sliding the springs down?  Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
