Air Locker Solenoid

Early in our Moab wheeling adventures it became clear that the front ARB Air Locker was only working intermittently. Our pal Trent McGee showed us a nifty trick to get a sticky ARB solenoid to actuate. Just take a boxed-end wrench and tap (don’t hammer) the offending solenoid. This worked for a while, but eventually it gave up the ghost for the remainder of our trip. The true fix involved disassembling the solenoid once back at home long after the end of EJS and cleaning it with compressed air. We still wheeled the pee pee out of the TJ in Moab, made it up Escalator with only a rear locker, but still wonder if we could have made it out of Mickey’s Hot Tub with all four tires turning.
