Thought I would pull the wheels and drums to ck brakes before our 4k + mi trip coming up soon. Found 2 of the four grease seals had leaked, had not made it to the brake shoes yet. Replaced all four grease seals, cleaned off all the old grease from the spindle and drum cavity. De greased and checked bearings, repacked bearings the old way and reassembled. Worked good on my old chevys and fords, should work ok on the RV and calling it good for a couple of years. Found seals at Autozone, "Timken # 8835S" Had the wheels and tires balanced at discount tire. One wheel was way off, took 5oz to balance. The other three that were on the ground took 2 - 3 ounces each and the spare took little over 3 ounces. Hope these tires get us through the trip. Shouldn't need to worry about these things on a new unit but thats the way it is. Guess I'm a bit of a nit picker. BTW a pleasant surprise, our 8289 has self adjusting brakes.
