Watch your wheel bearings


New Member
For those with a tow hitch or 5 wheel
A word from experience- check / change wheel bearings often, we recently had a bearing failure that almost left us stranded, bearing failed and destroyed the axle, so we limped on 3 wheels 600 klms , turns out the bearings are the same as a 3500 lb axle, times 2, 28’ fifth wheel is almost 9000 lbs before it is loaded,
So to me the bearings are doomed for failure, underrated, I replaced all 4 often.
