maybe the reason he (dealer) insists on doing work themselves is because they screwed up and they know it. somebody else would be able to point out what DIDNT go correctly with their repair and he doesnt want that happening.

just an opinion, but sometimes im skeptical.

Considering the equivelent of the cotterpin was missing....I think you may be right. Its a shame to as they seem to have a good reputation in the Heavy truck/trailer world and I litterly could walk to the shop from my house. In the last year they started catering to the RV folks even offering storage, Ice, propane and even a dump station for the storage customers. He did already go a long way getting a heavy haul flatbed to move the trailer 30 miles to his shop. We will see how it plays out.

Anyone use a synthetic axle grease such as Mobil 1.

I have the Ezlube hubs on my 266, I plan on putting in a couple of pumps in each before the next trip out.

Not sure would help much. Grease begins to fail when the soap liberates the oil whithin. Don't think better oil would help that situ.
