RE: Where to get Replacement Wheel Bearings -Old Camper

Gary, I don't know where you are in Michigan, but we have bearing stores all over the place. What you do need to do is get all 5 numbers. I don't know about your unit, but it may well have different numbers for the inner and outer bear sets and each of those is two part numbers. The seal is a third. I hope the spindle isn't damaged. That often happens when a bearing goes bad. When you get all 5 numbers, use a marker to write them inside a cabinet door so you will have them next time. Matt I carry all bearings and a seal to do 1 wheel. Plus in the garage I have enough seals to do all my trailers, and shoes springs and magnet for 1 wheel per trailer. If I decide it is a nice day to service a trailer I don't want to hunt parts. That is a great idea. I'll be going back to my dealer tomorrow and buying bearings for 1 or 2 wheels to have in the trailer at all times for just such a case. We were very lucky this time that we had just arrived home when we discovered the problem. Also, so lucky that we had a double axle trailer.

RE: Where to get Replacement Wheel Bearings -Old Camper

I predict we will not hear from the OP on this again. Larry was wrong : ) So I ended up doing the obvious and taking off another wheel and retrieving a good inner and outer bearing, and took them, along with the hub, to my local RV dealer where I was able to get a new correct inner and outer bearing and races at a very reasonable price, along with plenty of good advice. Thank you all for your tips and special thanks to Chum Lee, who I believe was the first to point out the obvious solution, especially since it was really about time to repack all the wheels anyway, which I've now completed.

Where to get Replacement Wheel Bearings -Old Camper

Hi All - I have a 1996 Coachmen Catalina small 5th wheel, 210RB. I'm not particularly mechanical, but for the last couple of years I've repacked my own wheel bearings. Today I had one seize up and come apart, so I need a replacement, and I thought I would replace them all. Trouble is, looking online, I can't figure out how to order them. The old one that I've gotten off is completely destroyed and without a part number. E-trailer only goes back to 2010. Anyone have any ideas who I could order them from that would know what I need?
