Trailing arms

Well we bit the bullet and are getting our trailing arms replaced a week after next. As much as I have worried about this since I read the first article about them. What really ticks me off is that the dealer, Colton Rv. near Buffalo NY never indicated any thing about there being a possable trouble with them. I can't believe that Holiday Rambler dealers didn't know anything about this problem, and just think that who cares the m/h is out of our dealership and hope we never see it again. For crying out loud not all people have or use these web sites and may never know that there is some kind of problem. Anyway, we have extra warranty and probably, will never be used, because if no break, or crack they will have nothing to do with the problem, so it will probably be out of pocket and we will get by, but again I think this whole thing just STINKS. Just venting now we will be ready to go to Florida with, ONE less thing to worry about.
Happy camping

R4R is the chassis that has had problems. 4 airbags are the ones that will tell you that it may have the problem with cracking , Monaco and Safari are some models with this style. The R8R is not a problem, it has 8 air bags, Different suspension at the rear axle.
