Started the bearing repack boogie yesterday.


Has anybody used the spray Brake Parts Cleaner to clean the old grease out of the bearing before repacking?


I have used gas to soak them in the past.

If you blow dry them, don't spin with air. Gas works for me.

I started at the back of the jack leg and measured 30" toward the rear along the frame....mounted the space mount there and the stabilizer has no problem retracting ....I had the same issue with the holes in the front jacks
being opposite of the illustration in the instructions.

Put all 6 screws back into one of my table leg supports. Not sure how all vibrated loose, but they were fine last week when we vacuumed. Drove 250 miles and they're all out now!
