T-valve adaptors on for tpms
Sent from my SM-N920T using Tapatalk

Those T-valves gonna affect the tire balance?

Mine goes back into shop next week; awning still a disaster, 3rd Digital Panel is dead; I'm insisting they replace the entire multiplex system, the auto leveling system still does not function correctly, all these items were supposed to have been repaired by Camping World; this will be their 3 shot at making repairs. A  couple other lingering issues I thought were resolved too

Will you be under 13' 6" with that lift?

I'm at 13' 4" hooked to the truck to the top of the front a/c unit.

T valves ..... I can always have a tire balanced :)

Height of trailer listed was 13'1 betting around that at pin level ..... I'm betting I'm around 13'4 before..... yes will be under 13'6 ....says the trailer shop .... they are a reputable shop....I shouldn't be really adding much to the front , high point of the trailer .... that is what it is off the truck .... 3 " lift....

I will take measurements when done to be sure.....

Might just be the structural engineer in me, but I would think about adding gussets to your square tube. Front, back and to the inside of the frame if there is something to weld to.

X10 ^^^^^^^ or if it were me I would make some struts to go from side to side and use the bolts (longer bolts if needed) to bolt them to the spring mounts. I swear sometimes backing in my driveway that I'm going to pop the wheels right off the hubs. I know the axles are putting a hell of a strain on them hangers. I could only imagine if they were longer like yours now.

If you look at other pictures you will see there is cross bracing across the width of trailer to the shackle hangers .... it is actually far better welded  and bracing strength then what the factory sends

Looks good!  Always did like the idea of the reels....Looks like you got room for at least 3 more switches/buttons in that command center!!!
