With a broken pin box on a previous trailer caused by an improper tow using Jake brakes and GN adapter by the tow truck. Repaired and reinforced it myself. And also reinforced the tube frame to prevent it from twisting at the axles. Kept aligned to prevent tire wear.
I know some pin frame have broken on different units and that is exactly why I always use proper setup for TV. And been watching my frame closely.
My friend has a medium SOB that had frame flex from day one. And its not a Lippert frame. He had frame repaired and entire wall replaced and the factory realy did a mess plus damaged during transport back.
