Greetings from North Carolina. I think the state is still there, but I have not been out of the house to check for some weeks now.
I have read every entry in every thread regarding moving the spare from the bumper mount to below the trailer. As A result, I have installed "Safety Struts" to provide addition support and resistance to torquing on the 4" box bumper, as I would like to free up space and capacity by moving the spare to below the trailer. Pretty common task I understand.
I have a 2011 Bullet Premiere 28RLPR with the underbelly insulated and sealed with coroplast. The spare is currently mounted on the bumper.
I have the following questions:
- Are there concerns with weakening the frames by drilling them?
- Will I have to remove any of the underbelly treatment?
I have been looking at the BAL Retract-A-Spare and the BAL Hide-A-Spare. I would welcome comments on the suitability of these or other similar products, and comments on where to mount them.
Thank you in advance.
