Update for 5th wheel built for NuWa

As you know, I wrote about the troubles we had with our 34IK NuWa built by Peterson Industries in our past thread named 5th wheel built for NuWa. Had extensive cracking in the "I Beam" frame above the axles on both sides. Yes, I Beam frame, I think the frame may have been built by another maker! I never have seen an Excel frame built with I Beam construction.
Ralph and his team did an outstanding job repairing and strengthening the frame. I am so thankful for the skilled work that he had done on our Snowbird! Also very thankful for the insurance co. we have that covered this damage! We had issues with our bedroom slide out and once again the insurance covered the work. Everything works wonderfully! This has been the greatest Christmas present ever, Thanks again to Ralph and his team of welders and techs!

Glad you are happy with it! Word-of-mouth about Peterson service, is partly what helped us decide to pull the trigger on an Excel.
