2008 JayFeather 19H - What axle do I have?

Hello,

I have a 2008 19H and am really interested in doing some kind of axle lift to help with the very very low sewer pipes.

I'll do some searching on the forum here, but hoped maybe someone can steer me in the right direction. Once I find out what axle setup I currently have, could I potentially go to that vendor and find lifting options? I called Jayco today and they flat out said they don't have any options for me. Then I called my dealer and they told me I should contact a welding shop....


Thanks!

I'm a bit surprised to hear this. The JayFeathers have had a 2" lift option available for years (http://www.jayco.com/products/travel...ndards-options). Unless one is not available for your model. I've seen a few posts over the years on RV.net where people made their own lift kits for the JayFeathers. The axle is made by Dexter (http://www.dexteraxle.com/).

I found a Dexter Torflex lift kit that can be ordered directly from Dexter. I'll go check which mounting brackets my 19H has and if they're the right ones, I'm just going to go ahead and try it out.

My axles do not look like they will work with the lift kit found here:

Mine are mounted differently to the frame. Still digging......

My axles are mounted to the frame in the same way as those found in the first post of this thread:

Response from Dexter:

Steve

The picture of the bracket you have is for a Norco frame that is on you unit. We do not have a lift kit for this style of bracket.

So, looks like if I want to move forward, I will need to do something custom. The idea of that sounds daunting....

Photos to show the setup my 2008 Jayco 19H has. With this axle (Torflex) and this frame (Norco), the Dexter lift kit won't work.

Wickedsharp-- I lifted our 19H ABOUT 2" and it wasn't worth the effort. I just raise the front stableizers and lower the nose to drain into my "blue budd"y which is in a hole that I dig. When you unhitch only use a thin pce of wood under your jack that way you get the lower the nose to the ground and raise the rear 3-4 " Just an idea. Larry
