Tag vs storage

I don't miss the extra door that much with my tag axle and I think the ride, stability, increased CCW and extra tow capacity was worth it.

Mine is paid for.
I could not have put it any better, you owe it to yourself to drive BOTH before buying, the ride is unbelieavable.

Be sure and check your tag axle for fluid.

I have a 1997 36' Dolphin M.H. and it has a tag axle and there is not much more that I could say about it then what the other thread have already said.
But there are a couple of things I would like to add to this discussion.
No. 1, The tag has a break system all of it's own it even has a master cylinder which I forgot about and it cost me around $2,300.00 to have it repaired, so when you have them check your break master cylinder for fluid be sure and tell them to check the tag axle master cylinder also. Not all repair shops are aware that some M.H. have two.
No. 2, In California when you go over a tole bridge with a car in toe the fee for that will be $25.00 (as of now) they count the tag as an extra axle.
Just a thought

I have a '98 nrv dolphin w/a tag axle. our brakes locked in Delaware.towed to shop in Willmington. Stokes..great team. they fixed the auto park brake & the burned up front brake system..yes, all of it...Now they moved to the rear brakes..problems there too, but can be fixed..Our problem now is the tag axle brakes..our team cannot quite work out the workings of these brakes..Is it necessary to have these tag brakes...From the looks of the drum it doesn't look like they were ever operational
