Torflex axles.

My Dexter torflex axles gave up the ghost.. they lost their ability to hold up the RV. I weigh it every trip and am under weight so that was not the problem. I contacted Dexter and they are sending me 2 new axles under good will provisions.. I have to pay for install and pay to ship the old ones back. IF they find that the axles have a manufacturing defect they will reimburse me the labor and shipping... THANK YOU DEXTER..

Seann45,

You may want to update your original thread on the same subject for folks that may have subscribed to it. Good to hear that Dexter is stepping-up.
