Do you need a temperature gun? Here’s the one we recommend.

Wheel bearing pack service

A wheel bearing pack service is recommended every 12 months or every 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Whether you are a DIY guy or gal or you utilize an RV repair shop, be sure to get this service done if your RV is due (based on mileage and/or time) or question the functionality of your brakes.


A thorough service will include:

  • Inspection of brakes and bearings for wear or damage
  • Cleaning and repacking of wheel bearings and replacing the seals
  • Cleaning and adjusting the brake shoes as well as testing the operation
  • Adjusting tire pressure and torquing wheels to specifications
  • Inspecting shackle links, springs, hangers, all welds and wiring at axles

We hope you join in on the conversation—we’d love to chat with you! Join us live this coming Wednesday @ 4 p.m. PST (7 p.m. EST) for Talkin’ RV Tech. You can join us on any of the YouTube or Facebook destinations linked below. We hope to see you there!
