A little bit of oil leakage on the front is normal is the spindle cavity is too full, there should never be and leakage on the rear seal. If you see inside seal leakage it is covered under warranty. This is all explained in the manual in detail.
Your photos and all your correspondence was forwarded to Dexter Marine Axle. All parties were Ccd in the correspondence. They are responsible for fulfilling all warranty claims as they provide us with the fully assembled components and have agreed to handle all warranty issues directly. If for any reason your warranty needs are not met simply contact us again and we will intervene with them on your behalf.
All dolly tires wear out very fast. Dollies do not have suspensions. We have customers that routinely get 5k to 20k miles on tires. The tires we use are actually very robust and expensive tires. Very high rubber content, 10 ply Bias ply tires. The only way to achieve the necessary load rating.
We have noticed that the tires age better when pressurized to 75 pounds instead of the factory recommended 90 PSI.
Good Day, Happy and Safe Motoring....
I went directly to the manufacturer and they sent me the parts very quickly and answered all my questions (I had quite a few). My original tires have about 8,500 miles on them now and the tread is about half gone. I also thought a small amount of weeping on the inner seal was considered normal to lubricate seal riding on the shaft (thought that was in the manual).
