SUSPENSION: FRONT: SPRINGS: LEAF SPRING ASSEMBLY: HANGER,BRACKET

7/18/2006 - SURPRISE, AZ
MY HUSBAND AND I PURCHASED A 2005 5TH WHEEL FLEETWOOD GEARBOX. WE FILLED OUR WATER TANK AND IT CAUSED THE HOLDING BRACKETS AND THE FLOOR TO BEND. WE TOOK IT BACK TO EARNHARTS SERVICE DEPT AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD NOT WARRANTY THE BRACKETS OR FLOOR. MY CONCERN IS IF THEY ARE GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO FILL YOU TANK TO 120 GALLONS AND THE BRACKETS BEND THEN THAT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. I THANK GOD THE BRACKETS DIDN'T BRAKE AND THE WATER TANK DIDN'T FALL OUT WHILE DRIVING AND KILL SOMEONE. I BELIEVE THIS IS A MANUFACTURE DEFECT THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED. MAKE STRONGER BRACKETS FOR THE HOLDING TANK BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED OR INJURED. IF THEY MAKE THE TANK TO HOLD THAT MUCH WATER THE BRACKETS SHOULD NOT BEND THEY TO SHOULD HOLD THAT MUCH WEIGHT.
