New 39MB on order....... question about wet-bolts ?

Moving up to a 2016 39MB Redwood (on order) from an 07 Cardinal. Ordered it with upgraded Goodyear G114's & 171/2 wheels, the same set-up that I did to my Cardinal after having a blow out as I don't want to go thru that again. I also had installed heavier Shackels & wet bolts on the Cardinal but forgot to inquire if Redwood installs them already at the factory? I'm hoping that is the case with an expensive coach like this one. Can anyone advise ? Thanks

Rosey, I personally believe the suspension is the weakest part of the Redwood....don't get me wrong...I'm not bashing Redwood but I am bashing their suspension. If you're going to be pulling the Redwood a lot I would look into an upgrade of some sort on the shackles (and bearings) and order disk brakes on it. On the other hand, many folks don't pull their trailers very much, in which case the original factory set up will work fine.

I crawled under my trailer earlier this week, and the spring bundle was twisted on both ends of one axle. Either the shackles weren't torqued or they stretched. I had all of them replaced after Crossroads approved the repair. If they hadn't approved I was prepared to pay myself for our. safety

They have wet bolts, but not necessarily the heavy shackles like some of the kits that come from Lippert or Dexter.
