Sealed Wheel Bearing Replacement

My DRV Mobile Suites has sealed wheel bearings from Lippert. How often should they be replaced, amount of miles or years? Also is there a good RV Repair shop you recommend, Camping World. I have had trouble trying to get them replaced, Les Schwab and Camping World have both declined to replace them. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you!

Not sure where you are located, but a competent spring/axle shop should be able to handle it. They are guaranteed for 5 years, and there is really no good way to check for wear--the only way is movement of the tire/wheel assy when off the ground. I had a set on my '05 replaced in 2012 because we were headed to Alaska--all 4 looked ok per the mechanic.
The bearing is pressed into the hub and will have to be pressed out and the replacement pressed in using an arbor press.
Check the Yellow Pages for a large truck-style spring/axle shop and give them a call.
The bearings are about $55/each direct from etrailer.com, if I remember correctly.
