Blue Ox Trucenter install concern

I just installed the Blue Ox TruCenter stabilizer on our 2016 Bounder 35k. Only one question, after installation the Trucenter bar and solinoid box it sits approx 5.5 inches from the ground. Should this be of concern. They use the TC35160 Stabilizer with the TC5000 bracket. The install appears right except I wish they would have raise the bracket some more, but not sure if possible. Any feed back would be appreciated.

Sounds vulnerable to me. Hopefully someone with it will respond.

You might call and review with Henderson Lineup, they may have tips on other install options.

Best of luck to you. And please post back what you find out, if someone comes up with a clever solution for you!

I'm no expert but I thought minimum legal ground clearance was 9 inches.

Noticed the same thing when I installed mine (2015 Winn Brave). Never hit or scraped it.

It's really not that *much* lower than the other suspension/steering components, but it is slightly lower. Speedbumps and stuff, no worry, as it's close enough to the tires to ride over. More worried about catching a retread or something in the road and popping it up and causing other damage....but again, it's a matter of less than an inch, so not enough extra risk to cause concern.

Ours has been under there for several years with no issues. We did get caught in a campground that flooded with a foot of water that required sending the unit back.

Also make sure your positive connection is direct to the battery or you will not have enough power to actuate the solenoid.
