Questions on broken tag axle

Tag axel has a rubber bushing that has seperated from the front axel causing the motor home to lean to the side about 8 inches. Can the two axel be welded as a alternative to replacement?

If this is the item you are talking about . . .


then No.

Replacement rubber blocks can be purchased form the manufacturer. Mor-Ryde.

I have the same setup on my R.V. but I have not had trouble with them (just yet).
Only with the breaks to the toon of $2,200.00.
Where are you located at?
What state are you in?

Just a thought.

WOW! Those pictures are ugly.
I believe those rubber blocks are a variation of the example picture I posted before.
I'm still thinking that Mor-Ryde is probably the maker.
Look for an ID band on the tag axle. Then contact Mor-Ryde and see if they can help.
Good luck!
