RE: Are these brake magnets warn?

Thanks Jerry. Thoroughly hand packed. Thanks Mike134. I should have stuck a toothpick in there to gauge the depth. This job is done! Thanks again everyone. Ben

RE: Are these brake magnets warn?

Well other than leaking seals, everything on these assemblies looks good. I hit them with degreaser and then break cleaner. I did amp and ohm resistance testing on each individual magnet. They all fell within the limits. The assemblies actually look to be a couple of years old with paint still on the springs and very little wear on the back plate. I believe this '08 rig does not have a lot of traveling miles on it even though APR 2007 was printed on the assemblies. The bearings all cleaned up very nice so after new seals everything went back together. I do have one question. The hub cavity has room for a good amount of grease. I packed the bearings and greased the races and ended up pumping about 15 squirts with the grease gun into the axle zerk while spinning the wheel. Do I need to pump grease in until in comes through the smaller outer bearing? Thanks everyone for your help. Ben

RE: Are these brake magnets warn?

Thanks for the replies. The magnets and drum are fairly smooth. I will do some voltage testing to check their functionality. If any are bad, I will replace the whole unit. Ben

RE: Are these brake magnets warn?

I read additional information and articles state if exposed winding is visible they would be worn. I did not see any, I guess. Articles also talk about testing the voltage and ohms. I can start there.

Are these brake magnets warn?

I have had this about 4 years. I am putting new wheel seals all around and I'm unsure of the condition of the brake set. I do not know how to tell if the magnets are warn. I checked the brake pads and there seems to be a lot of meat left on them and there are no cracks in any of them. So here are a couple of pics of the magnet and one of the pad. I found some sets on etrailer but wondering if I can get a few more years from these, and save some cash. width=640 width=640 width=640

RE: Advice on adjusting the slide out

I have had this FW about 4 years. Maybe it has always been like this.(?) I never used it last year but knew the floor tipped up and it actually separated from the wall. I do not walk on it when it is in, but this is right where we stored our cooler of beer and ice. (So that weight did not have a good impact on it.) I put 3" brass screws up through the floor into the wall. It is a level floor when slid out. I appreciate your replies and shared experiences. MN Ben

Advice on adjusting the slide out

I have a 2008 Keystone Lerado 29RL. While the slide is in, the inner floor of the slide lifts and is suspended. This is not good as It should sit level right on top of the mail floor. When I extend the slide out, the lower portion extends out first. I took a picture of it from the outside. Have any of you had experience with this? I understand it is a lippert above floor slide. width=640 width=640
