They don't have any contacts thru their website. No followup survey about customer satisfaction. And you wonder if they use JIT?
I'm just joshing you.
From what I'm experiencing w/ this purchase is that it would be advantageous for them to implement some QC programs. Then maybe all these chicken%^&* little issues wouldn't be so prevalent.
Looking @ the hub end, is this a supplied item or do the OEM axle makers make their own?
My Jayco popup had a Dexter axle w/ a hub that had a rubber plug on the dust cap like the Ultrulube, but the internal plate where the grease fitting was installed looked more like a Bearing Buddy.
