Folks I have an issue with 1 of the spring packs on the camper in that it ends up inverted even just sitting there. I have had it apart twice and checked everything a handyman can check but now think it's time to call in an expert. So I was wondering if anyone cann recommend someone close to Bribie Island? TIA Jason

hey muffin, can you measure the spring from eye to eye at the centers and then measure the distance between the centers of the mounts on the chassis. the ones on the chassis need to be roughly 20-30mm further appart than the ones on the spring.

Lexcruise, This is a new problem to a 5 year old camper so I assume it's the correct spring inthe correctly placed hangers. Mr Mac, I'll look up John and ask what he thinks. Jason

After some more research it appears I killed the springs in the move up from Victoria with the trailor overloaded. Anyway problem will be all fixed when I get and replace the springs with some new, hevier duty ones. Jason
