RV suspension Wet Bolts

To start. I did a forum search to see if I am just starting a redundant thread that has been done over and over. (similar to "best tires") Please let me know if I am beating a dead horse.

Our 2016 Attitude 5th TH came from the factory with leaf spring/EQ wet bolts. Thought it was better than the regular plastic bushing setup. NO!!! Lubrication on plastic bushings is no better than dry plastic bushings. They wear just as fast as dry plastic bushings. If you have wet bolts and do not know if you have plastic bushings or not, check them and do an upgrade! JMHO
