W24 Cracked Rotors, Cracked Brake Pads New Wheel Bearings Pulling of Axles, All Here

I know this Video is a little long but I learned a lot doing this project and I think you will to.
Things you will learn are... How to replace Brake Pads, How to replace Rotors, How to Burnish the new Pads and Rotors
How to Pull Rear Axles from a Dana S130 Differential, How to Replace and adjust Front and Rear Wheel Bearings
How to Properly install Stemco Seals on Oil Filled Hubs. And a lot more....
Note I think the cracked rotors came from 3 trips out west with a lot of mountain driving and poor braking habits on my part...

PS: I did all this from the the comfort of my driveway.
PS:#2 If I can be any help to someone feel free to send me a text anytime day or night 606-875-0125 Kevin Caudill I love talking RV's

Great video! Thank you for taking the time to make the videos. It would be great if there was a weekly TV show with episodes showing how to repair your own RV. Maybe in the future?? Thx again....

Kevin,

Great video.

That was a lot of work, not only on the coach but making this video. I have a much better understanding of what is involved, but not sure I could tackle the job due to the need for a press, etc. that I don't have access to. Couple of questions.

If you just changed the pads, is there room to get a tool in there to press the pistons back into the caliper?

How did you get the torque value on the calipers since you couldn't get a socket on them? Did you use a crows foot?
