wet bolts

i finished up getting everything into the new monty today closed the slide outs and looked at the shackles, they had grease fittings on them, does that mean that it has the wet bolt kit installed on it, 2014 3625re. plus my axle book dexter says 600-8000 lbs capacity, does that mean i have 8000 lbs axles, the sticker on the monty says GCVR Trailer weight max 16,000 lbs.

Yes you have wet bolts and no you don't have 8,000 lb axles. The sticker on the side should give you your axle rating

Most likely 7k axles. Remember the pin weight rides on the TV.

If your rig came with the 10 ply tires, it is very possible that like ours, they de-rate the 7,000 lb axles to 6,750 lbs, because the tires are only rated for 3420 lbs, not at least 3,500 lbs that the axle would need to see 7,000 lbs. We grease our wet bolt shackles at least every 6,000 miles, and so far, no issues with them.

and if you look at the back of your axles, you will find the stamp that tells you the serial number and weight rating of the axles, which should be 7000 lb or slightly less in your case. John
