Jayco slide out bearings

I was reading a thread on the Jayco forum about a part that was found on the floor. Ended up being a slide out bearing. I decided to check my 2 slides with the same slide out system. Sure enough I found one bearing completely out and the nut off of another. These bearings are difficult to get to and get back on. I was able to get one bearing back in and the nut back on the other one. These bearings have a 3/16 Allen screw head on the bearing side to hold the bolt while tightening the nut but you cannot get the Allen wrench on it. I was able to with various extensions and swivel sockets to use my ratcheting screw gun tighten them up. I would suggest everyone with the Lippert above floor system check theirs. Out of 16 bearings on my 2 slides, one was completely out, one the nut was off and 4 were loose. The second pic if you zoom in you can see the bearing laying against the rubber seal. First pic shows the nut laying on the floor. Last pic shows the bearing completely out and the nut laying on the floor.

I have had one pop off the front track (under the recliners) a couple months ago, and just found that I have another off the rear track (under the sink).

Would be a good idea to get them back on. It can be done but is a pain.
I cut some access holes under my dinette seats and recliners. I will be adding this to routine maintenance items. I can get a wrench on them but canít tighten them really tight because the bearing end has a 3/16 Allen socket that you canít get an Allen wrench on. Iím working on a way to do it.

I made this Allen wrench. I was able to get it in the end of the bearing and put a jamb nut on and another jamb nut to lock it on. It was a real pain but doable. An Allen socket on the stud end would have been great.

How did you line up your holes so well with the bearings?

I need to confirm but I think my unit has access panels in the basement storage bins. Does your year not have any access?

Lined up with lots of measuring. I made sure to move the slides in while drilling and not let the drill bit go through and hit the flooring.
I also have an access cover in the basement but you can only get to 1 bearing from it.

This info was applicable to my 2017 Greyhawk, probably the same in this instance. It's a Lippert product supplied to Jayco called a cam roller Jayco part # 0203495. Also called a .88 Cam follower.
