|One way is to look at the trim on the rear of the trailer. The trim should be in its proper location if its not you’ll see a line of were it once was. If you look real close at the picture you can see a dark line just above the trim. That was the original location of the trim and has since dropped. |
|The other way is to lightly jump up and down on the bumper. The body and the bumper should NOT move independently of the body |
After I identified that we had rear end sag it was time to start taking apart the airstream to determining the extent of the damage. Although I knew that corrosion was definitely going to be an issue, I had no idea how bad it really was. Years of neglected leaks had taken its toll. It was more then just the rear end separation that need to be fixed. The floor, frame, cross members, bolts, aluminum, rivets, insulation, septic tank, septic tank tray, pluming and belly pan all had damage and needed to be either repaired or replaced.
