Additionally, attached is a photo of the axle I.D. plate for my AL-KO axle. I provided the TYPE# to Karen at AL-KO and she was able to source the parts I needed.

IRT the FW line. If you just brushed up against it and it sprung a leak then I would jump on over to the local LOWES. I their plumbing department they have a large assortment of those. Happing trails.... OBTW- It should be a very low pressure line so a good electrical tape should do for the short time....... Industrial Gorilla tape is a mandatory item for temporary camping repairs...

Glad it work out so well for you.

Btw. Has anyone done the same for the new Dexter Axles? Does Dexter have a nice lady also that can help someone? I would that process so much easier. Just call the mfg. with the axle number and get the right stuff. I would sure hate to take it all apart and not have the right stuff.

Vin.

Another resource for Dexter is....
Dexter Axle - Trailer Axles and Running Gear Components - Seals

As you can see most are sized per the drum/hum size

I'm trying to get the pop up ready for a June trip out to the 4 Corners area. Now I have the water supply line leak to deal with. I suppose it's always something. : )

Ever hear the saying, “A boat is a hole in the water into which you pour money?” Just change a few words....

A trailer is a hole in the dirt into which you throw your money.

You know f5moab I have to agree. On the other hand a lot of folks sometimes don't seem to realize that simple maintenance is an expense they should be prepared for regarding owning anything. The problems arise when we don't maintain stuff like we should. I've always been a Boy Scout when it comes to maintenance. IOW - Be Prepared! But you know what Murphy's Law say's ...

I totally agree; maintenance is very important and cuts down on expenses due to broken parts. That's one reason why I posted the thread on points needed to be lubricated on most trailers; at least yearly.

And I will say, parts for trailer repairs are not that expensive; at least in my opinion they aren't. Example, the last order I placed with eTrailer was under $300 but it included two springs, two auto adjust brake assemblies, two brake hub/drum assemblies, four shackles and a bunch of nuts, bolts, cotter pins, and extra set of seals.

also, some folks choose to upgrade certain components, whether it's to go with an axle lift or different braking. I called Forest River and was a little disappointed that they couldn't be more helpful. They did recommend I contact the manufacturer though which ultimately solved my problem. gljurczyk had a better phone number for me however. I'm missing Sam Buckles already ...

MMMMMM Boat stands for "Bust out another thousand"

HD stands for "hundred dollars"

MG stands for Morris Garage

Mazda GLC stands for "Great Little Car"

Subaru LWC stands for "Little White Car"
