We had a Starcraft dual axle trailer that we put an EZ-Flex equalizer on and it improved the towing feel on rougher roads and over railroad tracks. Also kept things where we put them for the entire trip. Wondering if anybody has the experience of an EZ-Flex and a Road Armor equalizer that can give a comparison even if they were on different trailers. A set of rubber equalizers with wet bolts all around is on my spring list along with a set of Endurance tires as I don't want to trust the Trailer Kings after they are a year old. Thanks in advance for any help.

I think the dexter ez flex prevented damage to my trailer after a wet bolt disappeared on back tailing spring yesterday

Wonderful side benefit! Was it a bolt failure or a nut that backed off or not enough pieces to be able to make a determination?

I think a bolt failure. I lost both true track spacers and bolt the bolts are double half nut at the end. It was easy fix with the the blocks I carry, used a jack on each side of the tires. I lifter the camper on the frame and used ratchet strap pulling from the axel back the new bushing and bolt slide in easy .

Sorry for the mistake but my brain does not remember as my paperwork does! It was Equa-Flex equalizers that I had put on the Starcraft. They were on for seven trouble free years before we sold the unit.

That thing your talking might have rolled my spring out of the saddle . The solid rubber block dexter EZ Equalizer. I believe saved me a lot of damage to my RV.

Any idea on what would cause the bolt to fail? If going to wet bolts is adding risk of failure then that might not be a direction I want to go in. Thanks for any insight.
