  • Trailer Axle

    So its been 3 years now that I got my new trailer. I ordered from Loadmaster with a Torsion axle. This is my first torsion axle and I dont know when it is due to be replaced. As you can see in the pics it has some significant rust on it. I rinse after evey trip but I also fish every week so its seen some use. Is it time for a new axle?Click image for larger version

    I am by no means a trailer expert, but it sure looks close to needing it to me. I would be nervous everytime I hit a bump.

        Z-man there's a huge difference between rinsing with the hose and dunking in the lake. I dunk mine every trip and mine are spotless too. My dad doesn't and he's putting a set of axles under his now, though it's needed them for years. Raul they'll probably be ok for a while longer but they will need to be replaced before too long. Dunk that thing in fresh water after every salt dip if you can.

          I'm not an expert either and this may be a dumb question but is that cast Iron? I'm rebuilding my trailer now. Its a 2006 and I think mine is cast aluminum.
