Depends on when you packed them last and how many miles, I do mine every other year, but check them annually

You could follow the CZNEDY maintenance schedule and just trade it in for a new one when it needs its bearings greased...

You need to check them, but really isn't needed to repack them every year, what if you only put 5000 miles on them? If they are full and no movement move on. It's a pass time on this forum to repack your bearings every year. Nothing wrong with doing it, but a inspection will tell you. I have over 25000 miles on mine, they are still like new and just pump in 2 squirts of grease in my al ko axles and wipe the old grease off. If it ant broke don't fix it, there is a person here that repack and replace every year himself, saying that he has had at least 1 axle replaced every year in Goshen the last 3 years, I would say he's doing something wrong.

I'm not sure just when or where we lost control, but I'm thinking it was probably around 2013. Sue & I hope it wasn't 2013 because that was our 1st rally.

We have had axles replaced twice. Once because a bent axle, second time tire rubbing on the inside of the wheel well on the frame, 2 years ago. Have now a set of small 5th wheel axles on my tow behind. 2011 Greywolf.
Thanks everyone. As Bob would say "LET'S GET READY TO RALLY"

2013 was the first year for several of us! There were a few "traditions" that were started that year.

The parking chief would not allow that, it's just that some of the PPST are buying Columbus 5th wheels. Could you imagine the Tiki Hut in the Phrog pond walking distance works out fine

Yes, it would be a lot better for us that stumble, it would be a lot easier for the GPD, to keep everyone in one area.

AUG 12-18 2018 - Goshen, Indiana - FROG International

Thatís one of the oldest Bull Frogs that we have. If you see him at the Tadpole or Goshen Rally wandering around, please contact Joyce to come pick him up. He gets confused and lost very easily.

Not sure anyone has ever called me defective - but outlier? Probably.
