Trailair Tri Glide Lower Jaw Movement

I just noticed that my tri glide lower jaw has a front to back movement of about 2 - 3". It was easy to move the lower jaw back and forth while unhitched which makes me wonder if this doesn't actually contribute to chucking or banging.

Has anyone else with the lower jaw noticed or had experience and should I be concerned that it moves so easily?

Thanks,
Gene

I believe that one has a sliding plate at the bottom of the box with the king pin connected. This will allow the trailer to glided back and forth similar to the MORRYDE pin box. Which will helps in taking out some of the chucking.
You should also have several grease fittings that need to be greased on each side; correct?

Lippert just told me via EMAIL that "obviously" I didn't grease the three rear fittings (they are a little "condescending"?). My Carriage is only 3 months old, so did the pin box not come greased? (rhetorical

Yes there are 3 zerk fittings on each side as well as the 3 in the back. Guess I'll be doing some greasing.

You need to keep it greased for sure! Mine works well if greased properly.

I really don't need mine since I don't have a chucking problem. I do need to lower my front of RV. I would trade straight across with someone that has the TrailAire standard air bag hitch. Very simple swap the lower jaw is all that needs to be removed. My last MS came without the TriGlide so I added it that's how I found out I did NOT need the TriGlide. I went ahead and ordered the TriGlide with the new 16 since they did not charge more for it but then realized with my setup I needed to lower the front a bit.

So bottom line anyone with a newer TrailAire that wants a TriGlide I will swap straight across.
