    Mine is every 3 years...but I know some insurance companies say 5, and others 7.

    Sowseng - 2012 C/F camber tube doing just fine.

    Geez - just realized this thread is from 2010!

    Tried to get rid of some now-needless pics but can't edit them out.

    It was in a SmartDrive thread. There was no explanation that I remember of what had happened. Someone had seen I think Mark of Max Mobility using a chair with a broken CF tube *while* demonstrating the SD.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Someone else had camber plugs come loose in CF a tube. Tilite replied on the thread and (I think) improved their manufacturing technique to the satisfaction of the user . . . at least that's what I remember.

    A few years back we did have an issue where a few plugs were coming out of the camber tube. It was an adhesive/training problem that was corrected once it was identified.
