Landing Gear Issue-Opinions Please
We are currently in the midst of our Yellowstone trip and, wouldn't you know it, the other landing gear shear pin has failed. This time, it's definitely on the curb/battery box side. We replaced the one on the other side a few months ago.
What I've been doing as a "work around" is getting the camper close to level with the street side landing gear, then coming up about 1.5 more holes. I then lower the "bad" gear down, then lower the good gear so that the weight is shared between the two landing gear and the fifth wheel. I have not unhitched since discovering this problem.
Ok, so here's the dilemma. If I try to get it fixed here in Montana, it could eat up several precious vacation days. If I leave it hitched, I have to rent a vehicle for sightseeing or be consigned to the campground.
The question is whether or not it is safe to un-hitch in this condition? The landing gear does not appear to collapse any, and it would be pushing against the gears. I just don't want to turn the camper over, but also don't want to have needless complications merely from being overly cautious.
