In my reese dual cam instructions it said to bolt the snap up bracket to the frame if you were installing it on a Jayco frame. That is what my dealer did. I was suprised to see it list Jayco specifically.

Eric,

Could you look at the bottom of your Installation Instructions and confirm what "Date" & "Revision" level the Instructions are, and the page number that Jayco is referenced on?

This the first time that I have heard the Installation Instructions for the Reese HP Dual Cam referencing bolting the snap-up bracket, and singling out "Jayco". Is it possible that you may be referring to the Installation Instructions for the Reese Weight Distribution Kit?

The latest reference I have is dated 7/30/10, REV. "H"., for the #26002 Reese HP Dual Cam. http://www.reeseprod.com/content/dow...ion/N26002.pdf

Thanks in advance,

Bob

Hi Bob,

It may be the WD instructions I saw it on since it was for the snap up brackets. I will check and let you know.

Thanks also... I will soon be installing this WDH so I'd like to know.

p.s. Checking Cequent Towing Products web site, it has the 07/03/2010 installation instructions as the latest.

I just looked at my instructions. It is for the Reese Dual Cam HP High Performance Sway Control part # 26002. The instructions are labeled 26002IN, 9/21/11, Rev. K.
On page 8 of 27 it says:
"Installation of an additional bolt into the snap up bracket when using a Jayco RV with a coupler mounted to the bottom of the frame"
"If a hole does not already exist, mark the location of the hole to be drilled into the snap up bracket. Center the hole from left to right and place it 2.25" above the arc in the bracket. Before the bracket is placed on the frame drill a 9/16" hole in the bracket."

It goes on from there to describe how to finish off the install and has 3 pictures showing how to do it. When I talked to my dealer about the install I asked them if they were going to do this. They said they had talked to Reese at one of there distributor meetings about the bending snap up brackets. The guy they talked to was the actual engineer of the bracket. He said they were working on a fix and for now they added the additional step of bolting the snap up to the frame. I need be I can scan the page in and post if for you to look at. I won't be until this weekend some time that I will have time to do it though. Hope this helps.
Eric

Eric,

Appreciate your prompt follow-up, yes it helps greatly, and the confirmation of the information is very interesting to say the least. Your document "Date" & "Rev" is more recent than what I have, and what I have reflects what Reese has on their web site. http://www.reeseprod.com/content/dow...ion/N26002.pdf

Your referenced up-dated Installation Instructions has me thinking ():

* Why reference only Jayco when other RV manufactures use a tube style A-frame (in lieu of "C" channel) with the ball coupler welded to the bottom (ie; Rockwood)? Would it have something to do with the tube height (Jayco is 6" and Rockwood is 5")?

* What makes the bottom mount ball coupler an issue over a top mount ball coupler?.... could it be the height relationship between the WDH ball mount and the raised mounting location of the snap-up bracket over the top of the A-frame tube ?

* The fact the statement doesn't make any distinction to heavier tongue weights only (where Reese tech support did in the past).

* Does this apply to both Round and Trunnion Spring Bar applications?

* Do the revisions have anything to do with the changes that were made with the recent 2nd version of the HP Dual Cam (1st "HP" version was gold in color, 2nd "HP" version is silver)?

I'm going to dig deeper into the Reese web site and see if I can find the latest date/rev document like you have, I'm curious to see what other language may have changed that could impact installation and/or adjustment recommendations. May require a follow-up call on my part to Reese Tech Support.

Thanks again for the follow-up,

Bob

Installed the Reese HP Dual Cam "backer plate" yesterday. Actually went better than expected...., I used the Reese frame plate set (lag) bolt to hold my new backer plate in place, then started drilling. I removed one of the original thread forming screws at-a-time, drilled through, thus didn't have to remove the Reese frame plate. The pics don't show the jam nut on the set (lag) bolt.

Mike,

I sent Reese an e-mail about the out-dated Installation Instructions on their web site, and asked if there was another place to download a copy of latest REV "K". Haven't heard anything back yet.

Bob
