Lippert Axle Seals?

Guys, I have a 2013 Puma 30DBSS. Does the Lippert seal issue apply to it? I have had pulsing since new. Took it to dealer last summer and he supposedly replaced one seal that he thought may have been over greased. Still pulsed but didn't want to take it back and not have it for camping in the middle of the summer. Took it back in April and they worked on it again and it still pulses. It's over the one year warranty, but I would think this would be covered since it has been there since new. Thanks for any info.

By the way, I tried to reply to two different threads and it wouldn't let me because one was 137 days old and the other was 266 days old? What gives with that?

Mine pulsed from new. Had all 4 drums turned. 3 were .040" and 1 was .030" out of round. That was cheaper and quicker than taking it back to the dealer.

I had to replace a seal on my TT this last trip. The price of the original seal on the net was 2.97. The National Seal that I bought at Oreillys, 27.95.
The pulsing brake issue, could be a grease seal. Have you looked at the backside of your tires to see if there is any grease slung on the tire? If you have the extended warranty, they should fix it.

I used my fiber optic attachment for my little maglite and checked the seals tonight. 3 of them are leaking. One is very bad on the drivers side and the back one on that side is not quite as bad, then the front one on the passengers side is just barely leaking. The back one is dry. I've already sent a message to Lippert on their Facebook page and they have passed it along to their customer support team.

Lippert called me the next day and gave me a case number and told me to take it to the dealer and have them take the drums off and send them "lot's" of pictures and send them. I told her what the numbers were on the axle and she said it was their axles. We'll see how this turns out.
