1986 Chevy P30 Rear Wheel Bearing Question

This is on our 1986 28ft. Winnebago Elandan, finally biting the bullet and changing rear brakes and bearings. I consider myself a pretty fair mechanic as I work on all my own vehicles, and I've worked on a lot of Chevy brakes in my time. But this one is kind of throwing me for a loop. I'm looking for some tips on how to get the bearings out of the drums, it seems that the inner bearing comes out like normal when you take the rear seal out but the outer bearing has me puzzled.
Looking forward to hearing all of your ideas or any leads to any publications or manuals. Thanks for all your help

Hopefully this information for an 84 chassis will assist you in removing the bearing.

The 14 bolt 10.5 GM axle is not an uncommon swap in full size 4x4s. Check out this how-to on Pirate4x4: http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/14b_bible/
