    Single axle hybrid trailers reviews

    In addition to the sheet, you may want to consider TEF GEL (www.tefgel.com/contain.php?param=tefgel_infor) It's what the aircraft and boat industry often use on dissimilar metals. Downside is that it is expensive but so is a rotted frame. I wonder if a Sacrificial Anode (like that used on boats and boat motors) attached to the frame near the axle mounts would work?

    A New Trailer Suspension?

    Very smooth! Looks like another trailer frame on the deck. They've found the right way and now they can ramp production up.

    I can attest that you are not the first to have that happen.

    Quailipieces rollerskis and loctite-need help

    I received the same reception on my last purchase. I can't figure out what Kimpex is thinking. They buy Rouski, a seemingly well-run company and then decimate product availability and exude a poor attitude towards customer service. Kind of liking buying a successful restaurant and immediately changing the menu.

    MTO Annual safety inspections for trucks and trailers

    Your statements are correct but with regard to the yellow safety sticker requirement, they only speak about actual weight as you mentioned and if loaded, they have to include the loaded weights. The MTO uses more than your example calculation to determine if you require yellow safety stickers. If the manufacturer's GVWR of the truck + the manufacturer's GVWR rating of the trailer you mentioned total over 4,500 kg. then both require yellow stickers. Below is a simplified explanation for yellow safety requirements that was previously posted in another thread:

    I believe they look at both the total combined weight and the GVWR totals and if you are over on either one you get a ticket.

    Agreed on tandem trailers. Either the combined GVWR or CGW will be high enough to require stickers. I don't believe that is what gtserider was referring to. The question is, if you have a yellow sticker on your truck and you are pulling a light single axle sled or utility trailer, does said trailer also require a yellow safety sticker BECAUSE the truck has one???

    What gtserider has said is what I have always been told and thought to be correct. However earlier this year Volunteer 02 mentioned (in a thread about buying a new sled trailer) that an MTO officer had told him that the requirement for yellow safety sticker is calculated at the time the towing is taking place (in other words when they stop you). Could be that officers "interpretation" or it could be fact. More muddy than ever LOL

    Could an Administrator please edit my above post to get rid of the huge empty space at the top of the post. No idea how I did that and I'm now locked out of editing the post for some reason. Thanks in advance.

    Agreed on the info. regarding the changes to the yellow sticker. Sounds like it will be a while until we see any changes actually in effect. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation would like to inform you and your members of potential amendments to Ontario Regulation 413/05, Vehicle Weights and Dimensions (VWD) for Safe, Productive, and Infrastructure-Friendly (SPIF) Vehicles. Everything from the above sentence on has to do with highway tractors and trucks / tractor trailers equipped with steering lift axles. It basically states 3 things: 1. Very long wheelbase tractors will be allowed to be used without permit on some trailer combinations 2. Trucks / trailers equipped with steering lift axles that are controlled by the weight on the truck/trailer will now be allowed to have an emergency control in the cab to lift the axle. Since the introduction of SPIF, there was no control in the cab for the operator to lift the axle under normal driving conditions. They could only lift it from the cab by using a sequence of switches and only for backing into a spot or creeping around a site. The above is all about allowing very long wheelbase tractors to be used without special permits and allowing in cab switches to lift SPIF pusher/ lift axles.

    I'm going to throw another wrench in this discussion Nick. This is off the MTO website as well. http://find.gov.on.ca/?searchType=simple&owner=mto&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mto.gov.on.ca&collection=&offset=0&lang=en&type=ANY&q=160+km+exemption&search.x=0&search.y=0 Trucks Handbook - Ontario Ministry of Transportation If a driver is directed to operate within a 160-km radius of where they start the day and return to the same location at the end of the day, they may be exempt from carrying a daily log, but will still be subject to all of the requirements for hours of service. www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/trucks/handbook/section1-4-1.shtml

    If it takes as long to modify as it takes to get new legislative changes into law and enforceable you may have quite a wait. Who knows, maybe Dougie knows a shortcut. The issue that I see happening is lack of required maintenance on trailers with electric brakes. As Blackstar mentioned, they typically need maintenance at the very least every 2nd year as the wheel end hardware tends to seize up or wiring (ends) rot. The yellow stickers have helped to keep that maintenance issue in check. Responsible owners will still get the maintenance done, it's the fringe group that is worrisome.

    I would miss not having 2 trip odometer's. Use both when we are on multi day trips. One for daily km's and the other for total trip km's. It wouldn't kill me not to have them but it makes it easier to keep track.
