LIPPERT kingpin FRAME failure

On the last leg of our 5000k mile trip to Ontario as we set up at a camp site we noticed a problem with our front cap.

So as soon as we got home we took the trailer to a RV repair shop,
2 days later they had the cap off and here is what they found.

Looks like it cracked where the kingpin hanger beam was welded to
the front cross beam, possibly weakening the beam.

When it rains it pours, Sorry for your problems. Do you still like you Prowler? Can you have it fixed.
I do watch our pin box and frame around it. A little over loaded but I think the Trail Air pin box helps.
We have been very happy with our Prowler AX 6 for almost 3 years.
Post what happens.
