For my $0.02:

Since I service my Alpine and have changed the fluid in the differential twice and the last time was with synthetic I can tell you the rear axel is a third member type. You pull the third member and the ring & pinion come out as one piece no cover. See the picture on the link of an automotive third member which is much smaller as compared to the Meritor axel. It was probably a defective part since the coach was driven from Yakima WA to the east coast for delivery. If it were low on fluid it would not have made it that far. WRV purchases the axels complete no assembly required other than bolt it to the chassis.

Dave, Thanks for your .02 worth. I think it is good information and it certainly more or less absolves Alpine from any error on their part. Their part is know, in the way they respond and get matters taken care of. Thanks for the clarification on the rear design.

To reply to Edgray's question, WRV products are now authorized to be serviced under warranty, or after, through the Cummins Coach Care system. Coach Care Service Centers can repair most items, and what they don't handle, they can refer to the nearest repair facility handling warranty or repairs for that component. There are approximately 30 service centers throughout the US, available 24/7 for emergency service. Check them out at http://www.Funroads.com/service
Also check out the new WRV Customer Service Facility in Yakima, WA at http://www.wrv.com/html/contact_service_center.html
WRV can also handle most every issue there, as well as offering phone support and service center referrals.

Thanks, yours and the posts above it are all very helpful. From what I've read, the Coach Care locations are first class operations. Hopefully we will see more competent service centers opening around the country as RVs are sure getting more numerous (and more sophisticated) ED
