With New York State sales tax, $1080. I have mailed Chandler a copy of my bill with a request for reimbursement. Let's hope he does the honorable thing. I'll keep you posted.

Ouch! But if it solves the problems then sweet....I think Chandler needs to be smart and start taking care ofthese problems before a class action suit happens.

Even if the cost is never reimbursed, I think this was an excellent mod, and money well spent.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Brian, were the wheel wells relieved to allow adequate clearance with the 14" rims and tires originally supplied?

The wheel wells were relieved to the maximum that they could without risking damage to existing wiring or plumbing. The rims are original. I think that the stock ST205s would now probably fit with plenty of clearance. The replacement LT185s have a higher speed and weight rating and track well. I would not be inclined to consider a change until they age out.

I hope he does also. That wasn't cheap and I agree, it is how it should be been made in the first place. I suppose PL agrees, since someone posted in the forums that they are changing the mold.

The mod looks great! That should definitely fix the issue.

Even if there were to be some kind of suit, I doubt there is any money to be had. And if there was, I'm sure Chandler is smart enough to protect it. The only hope would be if PL is properly insured.

Brian, your solution looks great, and should certainly do the trick. Best of luck with your getting reimbursed.

For the sake of the industry, and keeping things competitive, I certainly hope PL can pull it together. They better do it fast though.

I posted this a here a few days ago... checked their facebook page today and the comment was deleted.

Mistake! Better to try not to hide problems but fix them!

Now would using a lift kit to raise the trailer up 2 or 3 inches from the axle wouldnt that solve the rubbing problem?

Yes, deleted quick. It's the second complaint delete I have ran across by chance. Lets hope the reason is complaint was solved.

Isn't the axle welded to the frame?

Yeah they did weld the axles to the frame. I have the first type of axle they used so I don't have the rub problem now but I'm sure down the road as I get sag it will happen. Sad that they don't seem to be satisfying the customers... not one person as of yet has said "Chandler took care of it quickly without me calling them 20 times and waiting."

The power of the INTERNET!
