preserve the label

I got under the 2016 Shasta Oasis 25rs and noticed he labels on the front and rear axles which show data indicating manufacturer, serial number and such. Is it possible (or necessary)to keep this label intact and preserved? I drove this trailer from dealer to our home ( 5 miles) and that as far as its gone. Once on the road I believe the label will be destroyed by road wear. So do I need to preserve it and if so how?

It never hurts to keep any record (s)'labels,placards,etc. for almost any vehicle.

You could get some flexible pieces of rubber and overlay the placard,label,etc. and fastened with some zip ties. Easily removeable if necessary.

I have put together a three ring binder for all the manuals, financial, and insurance information for my camper. The binder stays in the camper. I have separate tabs for major systems, one of those being "frame/axles/hitch" I pealed the label off of both of my axles, taped them to a piece of paper, and placed this in the binder.
Whenever I need information on some portion of my camper, this binder is where I go. If it's not in there, then I research that system, make a copy, and in the binder it goes. Has been a lifesaver, especially on the road.
Now, certain documents in the binder are only copies such as insurance information. The originals stay in the home safe.
Everyone has some sort of system, but this is mine. It takes time to initially set up, but it's low maintenance.

Take a pic and tape it on the inside of a cabinet.

I do the same - even include travel documents. I'm a sticker for keeping records.

In this case,I'm not sure axel labels would be removeable considering their location.

The axle labels on mine just pealed right off...backs of them were still sticky. I placed them on a regular sheet of paper, and used scotch tape to secure them in place. Marked which label was front, and which was rear axle.
If the label refuses to peel off, don't tear it. Just take a picture and print it out. All you want is for that axle item# and serial# to show clearly.
If that doesn't work, then write all ID numbers down and keep that.

During the PDI i asked dealer to check bearings to see if properly lubricated. He found out they were over lubricated and had to correct. He needed serial numbers off axles to file warranty claim with Forest River. So i got under there with Iphone took pictures a e mailed to him. That's when my question of preserving labels occurred to me.
