They buy them pre assembled most likely already on the frame and or install them.
Blame lci or dexter not forest river.
True, I thought about that after yesterdays post. Forest River is Golden regarding this issue. I do love my Stealth toyhauler. Forest River is Golden with me.
My axles are marked ALKO. A german based company. German manufacturers are typically known for outstanding performance, but not reliabiliity. ie: BMW amd Mercedes.
I pulled off and packed the second wheel today, (Right rear. Yesterday was right front), and there WAS a kotter pin installed.
Of course, I am the guy who finds the only piece of cherry pie with the pit in it. And I had to pull off the only wheel without a kotter pin in a production of prolly 2 thousand axles!
