Terry, Sometimes the temperature variation from one side to the other is because the warmer side is facing the sun while your driving down the highway. This happens to me all the time. Just a thought. Walt

Yeah. I had that same thought as well. With regards to the bearings, a mobile RV repairman gave me the name of a guy that can come out and install bearings onsite instead of having to take everything to their shop and press bearings in and out. I'll be checking with him, probably after the first of the year.

That along with camber of the road and wind.

Time to update things here.


We've had a local mobile RV tech come out to look at our axles/hubs and give us an idea of what we could do. Apparently, the Dexter bearings would work, but when he checked with Lippert (our axle manufacturer, at least by the tag on the axles), they told him that if we bought one axle at regular price (around $1900), we could buy the second axle for $100. With the two axles and labor (which can be done right here in our RV site), the price for the two axles would be around $2500 or maybe a bit less.


We told the tech to go ahead and order them. While we could have bought the Dexter bearings a lot cheaper, the tech said he would have to "engineer" something with which to put against the bearings to push them out and in.


Going this way, we will be getting the EZ-Lube bearings, an idea which I like instead of still having sealed bearings that are hard to inspect/replace.


Oh, and we had asked for estimates elsewhere on replacing the axles and got back estimates between $5700 and $6500 for replacing the two of them.

Sounds like you have found a reasonable solution at a livable price. Good luck

Bill
