Last year I burnt a bearing on my 5th wheel (dual torsion axel).
After disconnecting the 5th wheel from the truck. Traveling through four towns for parts. Then hammering hammering hammering the inner and outer bearing races off, and of course praying for hours on the side of the interstate I got her back home at 2am. During this learning process I found the castle nut for the end of the spindle at a towing company. I asked him if they didn't have the nut could he tow it? Of course he had the nut and I got my baby back home. During the conversation with the towing company he informed me that they just remove the effected tire and pull her (at reduced speed) to the shop for repairs. So........ If you find yourself with a hot (smoking) bearing, just remove the tire and slowly pull her for repairs. Remember not to far because the remaining tire on that side will not last long (I wouldn't go for more than 20miles).
