Don't you just Hate it when that happens!

Three photos are worth a thousand (cuss) words

The roads around here destroy anything with wheels. It wasn't corrosion, the damn terrain just disintegrated the spring hanger. I was able to reverse and the frame climbed back up over the tire so it fell into its approximate correct location where I could secure it with a line. We'll deal with all that after a Siesta....

Fortunate that the other side held, it could of been a huge pain in the ass! I have a cracked frame bracket on one of my axles right now, it is going to be fun taking it off to have it welded... no matter how much you maintain trailers it seems there is always something not far off from breaking or rattling loose.

I take back what I said about corrosion. Although the trailer is aluminum and all the steel hardware is galvanized, the springs are carbon steel, probably the only way they can go. BUT....the keepers that hold the leaves together are very light guage carbon steel and they surely could have been galvanized. In spite of a rigerous washdown every time I haul, the keepers corroded and allowed the springs to disassemble resulting in typical trailer behavior (bad)
