What Bearings....?

Anyone knows what berings are being used in the Salem trailers? 2012 26rks here.

It's unlikely anyone will know what bearings are in your trailer.

Why do you need to know?

Perhaps I'm putting too much faith in FR material tracking here,but perhaps FR might have a record of what bearing manufacturer supplied the wheel bearing for that model on that date. Or perhaps the axle manufacturer might.

It's a stretch I know.

Auto parts store told me the numbers are stamped on the edging of the bearings. Its the only way to be sure of what's there.

The axles are probably made by Lippert not Forest River.
If you really need to know you will have to remove one and get the numbers on the outer shell.

Right - that's why I said "Or perhaps the axle manufacture."

My reference to FR was to suggest they might have records of what Lippert was using as their bearing supplier for that model and date.

Cross check your axle manual (manufacture/size, Lippert/ 3000lb) then lookup the bearings and races, get the numbers and ID/OD sizes at the manufactures web site then go to NAPA or Car Quest and give them that info and they will be able to give you a set of bearings and races.
