And dont forget to grease the bearings ,wrap in wax paper and seal in a margerine container or zip lock bag . Keep a small container of grease and appropriate tools to change if needed.

In my opinion, NEVER EVER use the Easy Lube system on ANY rv, or for that matter ANY trailer. The only sure safe way to pack bearings is hand packing, by doing so you can inspect the bearings, brakes, magnets & the rest of the suspension.

Danny, I absolutely agree. When we get back in from our winter trip, my intention is to pull the ezlube zerks and replace them with a plug so it can't be used again.

I was lucky my bearing failure didn't result in more damage to the spindle that it did. The shop that fixed it does big truck service and has a guy that welds new spindles in place. The suggestion from the mechanic and owner was that if that bearing starts having problems, replace the axles (both).

When I pulled it apart, "made in china" was engraved on the spindle. So much for Lippert's claim about made in the USA or North America.
