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.
