Coleman Cedar (Destiny) Springs
« on: December 12, 2011, 01:04:48 PM »
Because of prior experience, given some of the places we frequent, I would like to carry an extra spring for the Cedar.  I have the Coleman parts manual, but it is not very specific about the spring I need other than giving a part number.  Of course, I can take the pu to a spring shop, but before doing that ,I am wondering whether anyone has the specs on the spring I need (then I can just order one on-line.  It's in storage now, but IIRC, it's not a slipper spring.

Thanks Rick.  I am going to drive out to storage and crawl under the PU to check.  When I packed the wheel bearings last summer, I thought I saw a regular leaf spring, but I may be misremembering.

The parts book shows 2 leaf 750# for 2 Cedar models and 3 leaf 1000# for the XL.

Doesn't look like Dexter carries a 750#

Thanks Rick and Bupkis -- it does have a two leaf slipper spring.  I have the parts list (I thought), but it does not seem to identify the springs except as a group of several different numbers.  Bupkis, I know that you are correct on that 750# spring, but can you refer me to the parts list that you are using (for my future reference)?

BTW, etrailer has a 750# slipper, but it is three leaf.  The two leaf slipper is a 500# spring.

My apologies -- I see that the 750# spring on the parts list IS identified with the Cedar model.  Many thanks.  I am probably being excessive in wanting to carry an extra spring for the pu, but on other heavier RVs, it has proven to be a real salvation in the middle of nowhere.  Changed a broken spring on a 5th wheel just last summer, some 30 miles into the mountains on a Forest Service (rough) road.  Even being very careful and properly loaded, it's not hard to break a spring -- though I have no experience with the much lighter pop-ups.  In any case, my thinking is that a spring is very cheap insurance when you are involved in remote camping -- the big problem is not changing it but finding the right spring, usually on a weekend, too!
