So the parts person locally asked if I had 3500lb axles or 4400. No clue. He states the most popular we're the 3500 in which he sold me originally. After showing him what I had, he states call Dexter or your trailer manufacture to be sure. Roger from Primetime emailed me back quite quickly and said call Dexter immediately about my issue. I did so and after email exchanges for a few days Dexter said they will pay for the repair bill of the mobile tech AND will send me a new assembly for free via Fedex.

As much appreciative as I am for Dexter helping out (which they helped way more than I thought), is there underlying problems Dexter is aware of?

Your axle size will be on a tag towards the center of the axle.

X2 on the tag on the center of the axle.
Seeing how that unit weight is around #7700 dry, I would hope you have the #4400 axles.

We have a 2011 Lacrosse and have now had 2 wheel bearings burn up and even have flames coming out of the brake drum. We are broke down right now in Little Rock. Lippert axles. Wheel bearings must be disassembled, cleaned and repacked at least once per year, according to Lippert. And the grease fitting on the end of the axle, ignore it. According to Lippert that does not count for anything as for luring the bearings. That's straight from Lippert today. And it normally takes 3 weeks to get an axle from Lippert and installed. Half a day to install, the rest is getting it from Lippert. If I have any more problems with axles or bearings, I am throwing out the Lippert axles and installing Dexter axles. Hope this helps.
