2014 Timber ridge CRE 3000 + wetbolt install

Hey everyone,
in the next couple weeks I will be installing a CRE 3000 kit, wet bolt kit and new shocks on our 2014 Timber Ridge 28DBHS.

I will post pictures and will try to keep track of the time it takes.

I have read through a few of the threads, any recommendations on special tools or things to add while in there (I will also be replacing break assemblies as they are ready for replacement)?

Thanks in advance.

This job is a piece of cake. Just nuts and bolts. If I recall correctly you index the wet bolts so the holes are at 9:00 and 3:00.

I did this on a 2016 Keystone product in 2018. I left the trailer connected to the truck, used two jacks on each side, an air gun to remove the parts, greased the begeezus out of the bolts, and drank 1 beer each side. Actually was a pretty simple job.
The entire rest of the trailer fell apart shortly after, but the wet bolts were going strong. My bride thought I looked sexy down there with that air gun!!

Finally getting around to install the CRE/3000 and replaced the shocks with KYBs. Easy job. The stock shocks are completely dead after 5,000 km - there is zero rebound in them.

Nice! Yes, the KYBs are a better product. Should help it ride better.
