Thanks for the description Spurge. My strap arrived today. The sofa-side one died within the year, had no joy trying to get a replacement through my dealer (beginning to discover he was a really great guy until we drove off the lot with the trailer. Every problem we have had, and there weren't many, have been extremely well handled by FR direct). SabreSam helped out in getting a replacement to me. I think my 31RETS is back to front compared to yours in that the pin is on the outer side of the slider, and the other end is screwed into the chassis. Now I know what the probable cause is I'll go attack the refit tomorrow, Tx rain permitting.

Sabre Sam,

We have a Sabre 32RCTS on order and wanted to have slide toppers installed but they were not listed as a option.

We have a quote from the dealer to install them when delivered, but, based on some posts on this forum, I'm thinking that it might be better or even less exensive if I could have them installed by factory.

Is this possible and, if so, what would the cost be for the 32 RCTS?? Would it delay delivery?

Thanks

Super Lube Bearing System

What exactly is this? What benefit does it provide?

Please have the dealer that you purchased from contact me through the factory.

I have the 32bhok and was reading up on bearing / axle maintenance. Shows that we have the super lube bearings. Can you give more info on these?

The super lube bearing system means you can grease your bearings and spindles without taking hubs apart. If you take off the hub cap off your wheel you'll notice a grease zerk there to manually grease your bearings and hubs.
Also known as a bearing buddy more so used on boat trailer axles.

Thanks for the info. That is what I was looking for.

I have been reading up on the RV.net forums about the ez lube system used with dexter axles. People are having major issues with these and have gone back to manually packing the bearings.

Is this case with the super lube? anyone having any issues? recommendations on grease type? Any idea on what was put in from the factory so we can match the grease?
