For the axle
, find a local trailer shop. I would not
recommend going to an RV place. Unless you love spending money. Technically you aren't "flipping" the axle
, you're changing it from being sprung under, to sprung over. If it's like my Bigfoot
. I think some of these trailers have torsion axles which are a different deal. But if you have leaf springs and they are mounted under the axle, moving them to above the axle will raise it up a few inches.
As far as the rot, it's always a good idea on an older trailer, if it's never been done, to remove the windows
with the frames, clean it all up, then reinstall with fresh butyl tape.
My trailer has a little rot under the kitchen window, but I think it's actually because of water from the sink. I always have a puddle back there after washing my hands or the dishes. Sometimes I remember to clean it up, sometimes I don't...so the wall soaks it up
