well my apologies to Lippert and this forum. after having read this thread and visiting the Lippert site, I've learned these are indeed stabilizers and not the levelers I had assumed. never mind what led me to believe otherwise. a good idea really, considering one will have to drive onto blocking or levelers of some sort, thereby reducing stress on the frame and even allowing the entry door and slides to function properly. i believe its best to level side to side at the tires on todays frames and really just use these as Lippert intended...

Nobody knows everything about everything, so don't feel bad. Even those that do know most, aren't believed.... if it's in black/white...gott'a be true. Ran into a post today where 2 factory manuals contradicted each other.

eatin a little crow, though hard on the constitution, is good for the soul. i did a service call once. fought the entry door to get it open. said to myself "wait a minute" and backed up. guy had the entire trailer suspended with a railroad tie at each end, axles a danglin'. full deck in the front obscured it. but, the 2" drop at the pittsburg line in the middle gave it away...extreme leveling...no gray area here...man left alone to his own devices...a dangerous thing

Is that possible?? It was by Alco , on whats the correct way to pack wheel bearings....spin wheels or not necessary. When it warms up here, I'm going to fab a jig to be able to simulate, with hub removed, where and how the inner bearing gets it lube....with/or with-out spinning wheel. I contend you don't.

I don't think it really matters one way or the other, but spinning will get the air out a little quicker and help insure the hub cavity is full.
