MyYoung,

Please make sure you have accurate information before you post, this is a critical issue.
It is my understanding that Kaiser is a dealer for the Source Trailing arms, and I believe they only use and install the Source arms. This only affects RR4R Chassis, all RR4R Chassis that are affected are 4 bag systems. Not all, but most, 4 bag systems were/are affected there were a few that were made with a different suspension. On those not affected, I believe that the arms go above the axle.

Actually Kaiser Brake is not an dealer for Source trailing arms. The only Oregon dealers are Cummins in Coburg & Hendersons in Grants Pass. They have installed Source kits, but they are not a direct authorized dealer. And the issue affects R4R & RR4R chassis. Sorry about the 8 bag commit, it a typo mistake.

Myoung,

Sorry for my haste and down right meanness, I did not intend to offend, this is a serious issue and no one wants to get owners confused and I just did what I intimated you did, again my apologies.

Kaiser Brake was listed as an authorized installer by Source, the original list did not distinguish between installer and dealer.

Also the Roadmaster you speak of is not the Roadmaster Chassis Company owned by Monaco/Navistar. Evidently the Roadmaster you refer to is the Roadmaster tow bar company, no connection. As others and Nanno pointed out to me, they do the actual manufacturing of the Source Arms under contract to Source. Source is an engineering company. Yes, it is both R4R and RR4R.

If there is another source for the Source Designed/Roadmaster Manufactured (tow-bar Roadmaster not Monaco/Roadmaster) trailing arms, please share those sources with the forum.

Jim, I agree that this is a serious matter & did not take your commit with any offense, as well as I hope you did not mine. I tried to mention that there is another resource for these trailing arm, but for one reason or another is was eddited by iRV2.

If you are a MH owner that had them install it then why do you work at a repair facility in the same town and have installed the kits yourself?

Mike,

He must be old too. When you get to be my age, you have to tell the truth, you forget which story you told and you get caught lying.
