    Please give us a report on Haspin Acres(pics!!!). We discussed trying the place out maybe later this year. We're in SW Illinois & ride at Redbird in west central IN and Turkey Bay at LBL Kentucky. Have a July 6 day trip planned to Interlake in SW Indiana. It will be our first trip to that park as well. Sorry for going off topic.

    Well we made it 2 hours into Columbus and the tow pig blew the pinion seal for the rearend. Pumped 1 gallon of rearend lube in it and came back home . We called Cincinatti relatives and they came to Akron and rode Honda Hills with us for a few hours on Sunday ( its just a local wooded area that my nephew has access too). Wolverine ran great for those few hours. I call it fixed with the new injector. Now I have figure out how to repair the rear seal on camper and hope the bearings aren't fried.

    Wow, sorry to hear that. Yours is the first rear end issue I have heard on these occur on the Wolverine. Did anyone do anything to the rear diff prior to this?

    I think he's saying the wolverine was fine (great to hear), it was his trailer that had an issue(shitty buzz) and that's why he never even made it to Haspin Acres.

    Oh, It got me wonder and I went out to check my rear diff and then got a light to see the PTO.

    Hmm, I am attributing this to the diff being low on gear oil and all the ratch it was making for the good 200km I drove it after servicing before saying to myself. Something is wrong, then discovered it took a fair bit gear oil then quieted down again.
