Hymnal page 275 shows ¾” risers that look to be woodish. We don’t have them. We checked the inventory and don’t see them anywhere. They also did not come with the trailer itself. I hope we aren’t supposed to manufacture them! I saw another post that showed they were missing. Is this normal? We can call clc Monday. We are a day or 2 away from actually needing them.
I also saw another post that mentioned using hockey pucks. That intrigues us. Is that a good/better solution as they would be water proof and perhaps a bit more vibration control?August 13, 2017 at 12:40 pm #1189BoardwalkParticipant
At the June class – we used a composite riser. However, I think the hockey pucks are a really good alternative. That’s what I would have used if not for the class.August 13, 2017 at 3:37 pm #1190patrick.hvacParticipant
The trailex trailer does not require trailer bunks from what I understand but according to the manual they should have been shipped with the kit in case you’re using a different trailer.August 14, 2017 at 9:57 am #1195Bob D.Participant
Mine shipped a month after the kit. White plastic resin pucks. I never did get the rubber vibration dampers so I used hockey pucks.August 14, 2017 at 11:34 am #1198frizParticipant
Hockey Pucks FTWAugust 14, 2017 at 3:08 pm #1199
I just find it weird they are listed in the hymnal and aren’t included in the kit. I thought about a call to CLC today but honestly we are ready to drill holes and mount to the trailer just to get the space back in the garage and I really like the idea of the vulcanized rubber providing a lot of vibration absorption so I ordered some hockey pucks. I figure I can always call later if we have issues. Thanks all!August 14, 2017 at 3:34 pm #1200
“The trailex trailer does not require trailer bunks from what I understand but according to the manual they should have been shipped with the kit in case you’re using a different trailer.”
Unfortunately this is not the same thing. The bunks are the long CNCed strips of 18mm plywood used to elevate the teardrop over a non-Trailex trailer that has a smaller wheel base. (Hymnal page 266) We have those.
The risers are small round pucks of wood that sit on top of the L-brackets on the Trailex. (Hymnal page 275). We’ve decided to give hockey pucks a try instead.August 15, 2017 at 5:13 pm #1207faithie999Participant
You’ll be happy with the hockey pucks.August 15, 2017 at 6:54 pm #1209frizParticipant
I like that they say CANADA on the side. Gives my camper an international flair.
