The Cheapest Fix and Happy Holidays

When I reported a mild thunking noise in my rig that could only be heard from the driver's seat, many people provided helpful ideas.

That's why, if there is a Santa Claus, his sleigh will be loaded with tow bars, brake controllers, roaming satellite equipment, TPMSs, etc and he'll dart from one member's house to another before delivery his first conventional toy, this Christmas Eve!

One of those offered was that the jack springs could be rattling against the leg when retracted. Well, after some thought, I looped an old-fashioned bungee over the leg and under the spring. It provides a ridiculously cheap and effective fix.

secure that bungee so it can not fall off....we don't need to be avoiding it on the roads or having it's hook stuck in 1 of our tires.

Make a good repair....remove the spring, slip a piece of thin wall tubing over the spring....that stops all noises and won't fall off or create a road hazard
