Where did you get that clear door glass?

From a previous post:
There is a trailer parts called Arrow Trailer in So cal that has deep tinted window glass. I replaced both of mine. They match the dark tint of the rest. Take off all the screws on the inside frame. Get some of that grey putty stuff. Helps to have some help but if not some masking tape will hold things in place for assembly.

Neat idea. Where did you get a matching cupboard door? Thanks!

The window I got was the full frame replacement by AP Products with Slim Shade. Can't remember who I ordered it from or who was cheapest at the time

I do still have the install instructions link: http://approducts.net/PDFs/instructi...stallFINAL.pdf

I cleaned up the lower wiring junction as best I could using a couple other posts here as inspiration. The larger wires that are visible are for the inverter.

MorRyde CRE3000 w wet bolts

Got jealous at the East Coast Rally seeing all the ORVs with the MorRyde systems. Then I got worried reading about the junk plastic bushings in OEM axles. Our suspension on the Glacier Peak was making too much noise to my liking, so bought and installed the CRE 3000 with wet bolts. Sure enough, the plastic bushings were worn through, allowing the bolts to shift around. The install was fairly easy (YouTube helped). Took a 250 mile trip on secondary roads to test it. What a difference! Smoother towing, less jostling of stuff in cabinets & refrigerator. If you are thinking about this upgrade, I highly recommend it.

Not sure this counts as a "Mod"....

Got tired of what direction the plumbing valves should be....

For some reason the photo posted upside down, but you get the idea....

Cornbinder, where do you get your parts from just an axle dealer?

Cornbinder, thanks for alerting me (us) to this, but could you please provide more info, especially a pic or two. I have a GP with MorRyde hitch pin, but I am not figuring out what you are talking about. Is it the axle suspension system? Plastic sleeves??? I am not understanding.

Thanks
Glen

The MorRyde CRE 3000 suspension replaces the stock suspension. Look between your tires and see what kind of suspension system is currently installed. My 2018 ORV 280RKS mountain came with the wet bolt kit. If you see a blue equalizer with MorRyde CRE 3000 in installed then you are good, if not you can order the kit from Amazon and do it yourself, or find some one that is mechanically inclined. The fix is easy, you just need the right tools. Luckily my buddy has a shop with an air compressor making the suspension bolts removal easy and fast.

I did this to my Nash 23D and was surprised at how worn or almost non existing the stock bushings had become after 15k miles. Wet bolt kits are beyond far superior than stock equaflex nylon bushings.

Changed out my factory installed joy rider equilizer with the CRE 3000 as well as the old shackle bolts with new wet bolts with brass bushings and larger shackles.

The old bushings were shot. I put on between 5000 to 6000 miles a year on the trailer.

Since I have an existing rubber equilizer and the trailer is equipped with shocks itís difficult to say the trailer tows smoother with the new CRE 3000. I know having shocks on the trailer makes a significant difference in ride compared to my previous non shocked trailer.

The old bushings looked liked pieces of plastic material and were deteriorating.

I replaced my tires last year with Maxxis 8008.

Was this a good investment compared to installing shocks or buying new better grade tires...my first choice is and will alway be to replace tires with the best tires I can afford..because thatís where the rubber meets the road. Then install shocks.

Lac,

Nice write up on your new CRE 3000 suspension.

Where did you pick it up? Price? Is the wet bolt kit separate from the CRE 3000?

Thanks

Dave

Ordered from Amazon. Separate orders but arrived same day.
Great service. Shipping cost was included.
Found them cheaper in the USA even with currency exchange,however, they do not ship to Canada.
Never did check local RV stores

Labour took about 4 hours to remove old and install new ones. I think the shop rate was around $100.00 CDN per hour. That was pricy but worth it to me.

Add the tax to these amounts.


MORryde International Inc. CRE2-33 CRE/3000 SUnited Statespension System
Sold by: Amazon.com.ca, Inc.
CDN$ 238.15



MORryde International Inc. UO12-016 Heavy Duty Shackle Kit
Sold by: Amazon.com.ca, Inc.
CDN$ 144.10

Hope this helps

Coops
