Flipped Shackle straps Morryde suspension 3000

Iím a newbie here in Ohio. I have a Jayco 30.5 ckts brand new. Towed it to storage lot after a camp trip and discovered two shackle straps were flipped in down position on opposite sides of the 5er on different axles. These wheels came off the ground with the LCI leveler but I did not hear any loud bang so I donít think that caused the flip. Anyone have any experience with this? Best way to flip them back?

I would think at some point during your travels the tire(s) some how came off the ground high enough for the link to flip. The equalizer (center part) moves either forward or backwards far enough causing the shackle to flip.

Try raising the wheels back off the ground on one side and use a lever or pry bar to flip the shackle back in position then lower it back down and do the other side.

Hook up to the truck and run one wheel up on a couple of boards. It should pop back in place.

Here's a video showing using a jack. I have helped a couple of people in campgrounds do it by running it up on boards. It will scare you when it goes back in place.

Smile Follow up response

Thanks to all that replied. I tried the advise of 2naEagle and put the wheel of the correct shackle up on a 4Ē beech lane leveler and it snapped the opposing shackle back in place. I then went to the other side of the 5er and did the same thing with the same correcting result. Didnít feel comfortable climbing under this rig and jacking up the axle. So I decided to try 2naEagles advise first and proceed from there. Worked like a charm. Learned a lesson. Level the coach first as best you can THEN use the LCI auto leveler. Otherwise the wheels come of the ground and flip the shackle strap on the axel with the wheel off the ground.

Thank you all again for the response.
