Lippert Replaceing Axles & Hubs

We left East Tennessee in Jan for FL and warmer temps and meet up with friends, even got to meet up with Lou and Laura for a few days. While here I noticed something not right about one of my hub covers on the left side of RV, 2010 CC 36RE, I jacked it up and pulled the wheel off and found that the bearning was shot to heck. The unit has the SBS type axles and hubs with the duel sealed bearing. Not able to find a bearing to fit I called Lippert and was informed that my axles and hubs had been recalled and that replacement axles and hubs would be sent out. After given them all our information and finding a Camping World site in Cocoa who could and would change them out the new axles and hubs are on there way. They are coming to the campground and install one axles and then take RV to shop and replace other one and insure everthing is up and going before releaseing us to travel. The really bad thing about all this is we are going to miss the snow and cold and have to stay in nice sunny FL a few more days maybe weeks, lol.
P.S. I ask why I had not received any notice about the recall and was informed that because it was a trailer or towalbe RV they where not requaired to send out notices that it was up to the owner to keep up with them and check for recalls. After talking to some federal and state people via phone I have found that this is true.

Did Lippert tell you how to check for recalls?

I had mine changed out last summer. Lippert sent me new axles and hubs. No recall notice was even mentioned! I had a shop swap over the axles and brakes since Lippert would not agree to send them 'loaded'. It was an involved procedure for the shop even tho they work on heavy trucks all the time. They must have put in 8 hours over a two day period on the exchange. You're fortunate you did this now at your convenience instead of somewhere at a time less desirable. Good luck.

Do you have anything in writing? Looking for year and serial number groups that are recalled.

Just talked to a Lippert Service rep. she told me that Lippert does not now nor never has had any axle recalls and that people can write anything they want in forums. Another email from Lippert said I could buy one axle and receive one free.

She must be misinformed. I had both axles replaced by Lippert at NO CHARGE with one phone call, May 2012, to 'Don' @ Lippert. (574) 537-8900. You can mention my reference #335617. Mike Kindel
