Front Range, if you're going to change the seal yourself, youll save money by getting it here.
Whisler Bearing Co.
4975 Colorado Boulevard, Denver, CO 80216
(303) 377-3444
I think they have every bearing and seal ever built and many contractors and repair shops get them here. About a 1/4 mile north of I-70

Front Range, it's not really a seal, it's a gasket that you can either replace or use Silicone as a sealer on it.
Raise that side of the motorhome so the oil doesn't keep dripping, remove the 10 bolts, pull the axle shaft, clean everything, lay a bead of silicone and you're home free.
The inside seal takes much more to change..

Frontrangrver,

Yes your seal is the easy one to replace.In a pinch a nice bead of silicone,works better.IMHO </div></BLOCKQUOTE>


I called first thing this morning and the local Workhorse Chassis Service Center said they don't have the gasket in stock, but offered to "put silicone on it as a gasket", and said they have done this in the past with no problems.

I'm bringing it down the mountain tomorrow and will drop it off at the shop....

Thanks for the reponses!

FrontRangerRVer,
You know I bet that's how the WCC service center in Va fixed ours. As I previously said, they fixed it while we eat lunch across the street. Looking back , I don't think they would have had time to even replace the outside seal. If it was a silicone job, it has worked pretty well. Almost three years and 30K+ miles.

gEECHEE,

Actually if you have the clear seal,it's much faster than letting the silicone tack up.

My left rear seal was repaired today here at the service center in Myrtle Beach. They replaced the seal just behind the axle flange. At close to 60,000 miles this is the first grease/fluid leak I have had to address. The part was in stock.

It fell coincidentally with the removal of the front and rear wheels to lube up the slide pins. While they were at it I had the cooling system serviced; new thermostat and radiator cap. The block was drained down, recovery bottle was cleaned and looks brand new and 2 gallons of Dexcool were added.

I also had the brake fluid bled out and replaced. I do feel a difference in the brake pedal. I recommend this maintenance procedure to anyone with time and high mileage on their unit.

Well, I dropped it off this morning on my way to work......they are going the silicone route as the gasket is not in stock....

They said the silicone will work just as good, or better, than the OEM gasket. Hope they are right....
