Lippert Sealed Bearings

I have the Lippert Sealed Bearing setup on my 5th wheel, the last trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway the brakes on the trailer wernt working as good as i liked (if you have ever drove the last 1/4 of there) you know what I mean, I stopped in a outlook and adjusted the brakes one wheel at a time, I like to spin the wheel so I know that the brakes are right when I got to the 3rd tire I adjusted the brakes then gave the wheel a tug and it was loose on the spindle as in Bearings wearing or the nut backed off, I took the cap off and sure enough the nut was 1/2 turn off the paint mark I tightened it up and staked it with a chisle so It wouldnt turn again. I was going to get some spare bearings to carry but they are discontinued, Long story short After some research I see there have been alot of people loosing hubs I contacted Lippert and without hesitation they are sending me Axles, hubs and the hardware it will be here tomarrow, I am very happy They are doing this, but from what I seen the problem was not the design but the Nut coming off, I caught mine by accident others have not been so fortunate
