Common Caravan And Trailer Suspension Issues

Breakages occur in two places:

  • Rupture near the eye and
  • where the centre bolt goes through the leaves.

Broken suspension at the eye is usually a sign of overloading. In this case, you’ll need to upgrade to heavier springs for your trailer or caravan.

If your mechanic does up your fish plate incorrectly, your spring will break at the centre bolt. Do not tighten u-bolt nuts up with a rattle gun.

When the fish plate has more tension on one side than the other, the spring is unevenly balanced. You’ve likely loaded more weight on one side of the spring than the other. As a result, you may find a break right down the middle.

Subsequently, to fix this issue, turn the fish plate upside down and tighten it by hand. Take care you don’t bend the fish plate. Retighten after 200 km.
