Well, 2 nites at the Flying J in Barstow, CA and have an appointment today at Range RV in Hesperia to look at our leaking axle. Not sure if it is the vent again or worse.

This is the 4th leaking episode.

Has anyone else had leaking problems, or am I the only one?

Seems to happen on long uphill pulls, we were on the way home from Disneyland.

Have them check the breather tube on the rear axle,if it's plugged the seal's will blow every time.

Is it the axle (exterior leak on wheel) or wheel seal (leak on inside dual)?

I was speaking to a guy in Perry, GA who told me that he went through 3 sets of axle seals 2 of which failed bi-laterally within a couple of months. He had a W24.

Going to a different service center, ABC Bus in Orlando, they told him that he had the wrong seals installed and once repaired for the 3rd time I am told that he has had no further issues with his axle seals.

Thanks all for the input.

Turned out it is the pinion seal this time.

July in Yellowstone it was the left rear axle seal.

I have had previous problems with the fluid coming out the vent, but in Nov 05 WCC put in a new style vent from Dana, & I haven't had any issue with the vent since then. (Hi Keith, this is the coach you saw in May 2005, concerning the vent.)

I will ask them to check the vent also.

25 years & 268,000 miles my '77 Toyota truck rearend never leaked. This is getting old.

On a level surface, remove the fill plug and allow the contents to flow out until it stops. Restore the plug and the vent shouldn't leak anymore.

Well, the pinion seal has been replaced & we are back home.

tvp,

There is no recall as far as I know. The Workhorse Part Number I was given for the vent is W8002811.

But it would be specific to your axle.

Our coach has been sitting here at home for a few days now, so I will level & remove fill plug to check fluid before we leave on trip later this week. Also will inspect the vent.

Have a Merry Christmas all.
