Trailair Tri Glide Lower Jaw

I just noticed that my tri glide lower jaw has a front to back movement of about 2 - 3". It was easy to move the lower jaw back and forth while unhitched which makes me wonder if this doesn't actually contribute to chucking or banging.

Has anyone else with the lower jaw noticed or had experience and should I be concerned that it moves so easily?


I have limited clearance between the front of the 5th wheel cab and the air fill for the pin box cushions and it is difficult to get an air nozzle in there. Anyone have the same issue and suggestions?

Thanks,
Gene

When was the last time you greased the rollers ? There are a total of 9 grease fittings and I know with mine, it will start to move easily and bang when it needs to be greased.

There are several folks that relocated the air chuck to a more practical location.

How would you move the air chuck? Is it just a screw in that is "easily" replaced?

yes, it's just screwed into the air bag, and can be replaced with air hose that can be bought online at any air bag manufacturer such as Air-Lift. I originally moved mine with a hose that just threaded onto the air chuck (Schraeder valve), but eventually just installed a dedicated compressor.

My 5th airborne was moved as well.

Here is my air fill valve - It makes it 100% easier to fill the bag if needed while hooked up , , I am not as sophisticated as Atom Ant,, :-)

Forward and back movement is ok, but a loose plate in a tilting motion is not ok.

Your picture didn't come through, or at least I can't see it.

Sorry, for some reason the work computer blocked it, but it is viewable on my cell.

Thanks,
