Author Topic: Air Beam Leak Repair  (Read 11753 times)

« Reply #15 on: April 16, 2006, 11:33:57 AM »

You'll get a better appreciation of the task if you go to Gumpydog's site and look at the pictures.  The airbeams are rectangular tubes about 6x6 or 6x8 and 36-40" long  buried in the frame structure  below the floor and inside the wheels.

It can be done - anything can if you're determined enough!  but it's alot of work.   My "California" MCI-9 had a huge amount of fine silt all over this area that served as a "sponge"  making sure the corrosion continued long after the rain was gone.  Haven't "tested" for leaks yet,  but I'll let you know if any show and what I do to address the problem.

Like the old expression goes

Given enough time and enough money you can fix anything

Not to say it is always worth it


If it won't go FORCE it ---- if it breaks it needed to be replaced anyway
