Default Re: CTS trailer problem

Had the same type problem on a Featherlite 15 years ago it cracked were the tounge was welded to main rails right along the weld the cracked across the floor trailer dam near cracked in half. I was at the IRL RACE in Phoenix. They had their service team there but didnít have a big enough welder so they called one in and patched it up enough to get it back to their factory in Iowa were they completely rebuilt the front section. I had bought a new one and was setting at home in my shop. When I got home we jacked it up and it was welded the same way. Featherlite sent someone to get it took it back to factory in Iowa and completely redone the tounge to frame welding and reinforcement and returned it back to my shop. The problem was when they welded it the first time it caused a stress riser right along the frame were the weld was.
