I used to carry a bag of pins a punch and an extend able magnet in a bag under the bed of my 04 Tropi-Cal. Got so I could do a pin in about 10 minutes. Early this year I noticed a lot brass shavings in the gear box. Upon further exploration I found that the brass bushing on the front of the gear box had pretty well disintegrated. I removed the gear box and took it to a machine shop where they disassembled it and made all new bushings. They also told me to use the rolled pins I was using but then to get some smaller rolled pins to drive inside the larger ones. The guy said this was stronger than using the coiled pins you can buy from Power Gear. After the rebuild and using the two pin method I did not shear another pin in the 3 months before I traded for a new coach.
