I'm feeling lucky. Sitting in the RV now watching a little TV and no more problems popped up. Changed out the Dometic 300 toilet today with the 300 with the new modification. Took 15 minutes. Hooked up everything and no leaks (ya). Re-winterize it again tomorrow. Took advantage of the one day heat wave today. Snow again Monday.

I had wheel bearing issue and discovered the rear wheel grease cap was slightly larger than the front! Two trips to the parts store!

An email to the manufacturer might have resolved this at no cost to you.
Al-Ko was quick to mail out some free center rubber plugs when mine started cracking and slinging grease.

I have never had the grease-able zerks on a camper before. How easy is it to take the rubber cover off and put back on with out damaging them? Sorry for the hi-jack of thread. Any suggestion on the greasing process would be helpful. My last camper I took the bearings out and hand packed them and was comfortable with that.

thank-you

I now grease minimum three times, that twice during the regular season and one to start the season. Several times I have found grease caps rolling inside the center spinner.
