Warranty is one thing, long term wear is another. I also asked Dexter for advice. Here's what I asked:
Should I put a 2500 pound trailer with a single Torflex axle on jack
stands to take the weight off the axle:
(a) when storing it for the winter
(B) when I don't plan to use it for a month
© any time it's parked in one spot for a week or more
(d) all of the above
(e) none of the above
Please include reasons. I've heard many different answers. Thanks!
And the reply, from engineer Christine Bachman:
Dexter Axle recommends that a trailer be jacked up and placed on appropriate jack stands if the trailer is to be stored or unused for an extended period of time (i.e. over the winter).
So the answer would be (a) but not because it is our Torflex axle. The reason for this recommendation is NOT to "preserve" the suspension but more because of the tires
. The suspension is not damaged by sitting still whether it be our Torflex or our leaf spring suspension.
