 Tl*the contact owns a 2007 charmac forehourse living quarter 5th wheel trailer (na). the propane fuel line is the lowest point underneath the trailer. therefore, everytime the contact drives various speeds over a speed bump, the fuel line strikes the road and drags. as a result, the fuel line has failed. the contact believes that the fuel line should be inside the frame and not exposed to road hazards. he took the trailer to the mechanic and called the manufacturer. several weeks later, the manufacturer replied and stated that the vehicle passed the standards of where the fuel line needed to be located, and were therefore unwilling to authorize a free repair. the current and failure mileages were less than 1,000. updated 06/25/08 *bf
 Tl*the contact owns a 2007 behnke bb dumptrailer (na). the contact stated that the sides of the vehicle and the floor were both buckling. the body of the vehicle was bending to the left. the dealer took pictures to send to the manufacturer and they stated that they could not see the failures from the photos. the contact stated that he would not have the vehicle repaired until it completely fell apart. this was a dump trailer; therefore, no vehicle information was available.
 I have a 2006 alfa travel trailer that has 4 carlise tires on it. this trailer has less than 1,000 miles on it, that is only 2 trips. a trucker pulled up next to us and told us that we had tire problems. i looked and the curb side tires were smoking. i pulled over to the side of the road and the tread of one of the tires had swelled and was contacting the other tire. the tread would have come off if the axles would have been farther apart. i always inflate my tires to the recommended pressure and i am a real stickler about checking them. look on the internet! these tires are dangerous and are going to cause many deaths if something is not done. if that tire would have blown on the road we were on i have no doubt it would have flipped!! this is so scary and it is time for the government to step up and do something about it. *tr
