I believe that is correct. An axle can't catch on fire. It's made of steel. A wheel hub can catch fire it has or is supposed to have grease in it. Not enough grease and it will overheat and possibly burn. That is not the axles fault...Wheels falling off??? Really! That's one I never heard before....I doubt that Lippert axles are really any different than any of the others. There are literally hundreds of thousands of them in use. I doubt that you will have any axle related problems if you properly maintain it. Changing the brand of axle won't improve your chances. Lippert probably also made your frame, windows, exterior door, leveling system, and many other components in your trailer. They own a lot of companies.
