Lippert is trying to get it to columbus by monday due to our health concerns. We are fortunate to be only 140 miles from home so we will likely go back to wait. In the meantime hubby asked the dealer to please check the other wheels. I agree it would be a good idea for the manufacturers to go to a better axle.

I'm quite sure that your Crusader has Dexter axles. You should be using the grease spec'd in the Dexter Axle manual (our Library or the Dexter website).

First thing anyone should do is repack/grease your bearings and check air pressure before leaving the dealer after purchase.
I did this after my last purchase and found three of the four Lippert axle/bearings dry and one of the four tires under inflated by 30#.
Do not trust your dealer or the factory to do this for you. Take a grease gun and good quality air guage with you when you pick up your unit. Most units now come with bearing buddys and are easy to grease. Do not spare the grease. If not insist the dealer pull the wheels and pack them pryior to delivery.
I have had numerous trailers through the years and have learned this from experiance. (bad experiance)

x2

I checked my bearings after hearing about all the failures that the Lippert frames were having. All four hubs either dry or nearly dry of grease. Used a tube and a half on four hubs! Set up for failure, one didnt even have a grease zirc on it. Wounder how it was ever greased.

Sorry for your trouble and I hope that they get you repaired quickly!
