HR Endeavor Questions

I need some help!!!
My 2003 Hoilday Rambler Endeavor Diesel Pusher 36 1/2 foot
ISC 8.3 Electronic engine. Banks Power pack, Variable speed Cooling fan.
I Have a few Maintenance questions.

1. Front wheel bearings. Need instructions on how to adjust the tension on the wheel bearings? Have a primary nut with a special nub that locks into a retaining ring, then a flat washer and the final locking nut. The flat washer is bent over the locking nut. Should there be a preload placed on the bearings? How many foot lbs should be placed on the final lock nut?

2. Shocks. Bilstean or Koni Koni has an FSD shock is this the best for my couch? My Monroe shocks have 47,000 miles. Where can I find the Order number or model number for either Bilstean or Koni that fit a HR Endeavor 2003 Diesel Pusher 34,000 LBS?

Thanks William Fuller

William, You can find the part number you need at www.konirv.com. Just enter your make, model and year. Look for the shop on-line window toward the right of the screen. You can order direct if you care to do so or call our friends at Brazels RV or Redlands Truck Service.

What kind of front axle is on your coach? That will define the proper maintenance for the wheel bearings.

Monaco (Roadmaster chassis) can probably identify it for you if your documentation doesn't tell)

Front wheel bearing adjustment

My front axle is solid with spindales on each end.

I have two nuts plus washers holding the outer tappered bearing in place.
The inner nut has a nub which looks into a thick washer with wholes around the outside diameter and a tab which locks into the top spindale slot. Then comes a flat washer for locking the outside smaller nut.
The out side nut when torqued applies pressure to the inside nut and forces it tighter againest the bearing.

What I'm looking for is the proper tightnes to tighten the inside nut and then what torque should be applied to the outside nut.
