RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

Yea frozen calipers and discolored (not sure what else) rotors from heat. They replaced rotors, calipers, pads, hoses, brake fluid, differential fluid, seals, and battery. I use a small town mechanic for all my work, hes a straight shooter. I usually just trust him.

RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

The issue has been resolved. $1700 and change later. We had a mechanic replace all the rear brake components on both sides. This also included new seals, new brake fluid, etc. He checked the fronts and they were fine so we didnt do anything there. He also checked the tires, put in a new battery, and adjusted the airbags. I drove it 2 hours on Thursday. No smell, no heat, more power, excellent braking.

RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

Can that be done without jacking up the RV?

RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

Even the tires are warm. I will check the tire pressure first.

RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

I will check the tire pressure. The parking brake is released, but no idea if its dragging or not? Ok didnt know that about the bearings!

RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

Would getting the bearings repacked and seals replaced be a good idea?

Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

Hi, Sometimes after even a 20-30 mile trip I will get a whiff of a weird smell coming out from under the coach. It smells like burning plastic or something. It seems to come from the rear wheel wells. The wheels and tires are warm or hot to the touch. It goes away quickly and I havent noticed any issues with breaking, or any noises. Before I take it in for service, any thoughts on what it could be? We did have ants infesting the insulation and would find little white piles of "dust" under the RV but we have taken care of that with some ant traps. I thought maybe it was plastic burning off from those droppings but it could be brakes or axle I guess? This is on a 2008 Winnebago Outlook 31C with only 10k miles.
