wheel bearings

Hi everyone, bringing my 2020 25rds home to do a little maintenance on it. It's stored 20 miles away in a covered space where I'm not allowed to work on it, so I have to do any work on in front of my house. Unfortunately my HOA only allows me to have it there for 24 hours. I'm trying to assemble all the parts I will need ahead of time to avoid scrambling for stuff while it sits out front. Apparently I have Dexter hubs. My question is does anyone know the size and /or part number for the seals. I have nothing on it in all my manuals I recieved when we baught it.

Since you have Dexter axles you can find the necessary part numbers for bearings and other related components in the Dexter Light Duty Catalog by looking at the Hub groups section for the identified axle. There you will see exploded diagrams for all the components along with part numbers.

5200# axles take seals with a 2.25 ID and an 3.371 OD

These are what I used on my 25 RDS

Assuming you also have Dexter axles there should be a serial number printed on a sticker somewhere on the axle. You can contact DExter with the number and they should be able to tell you exactly parts are needed.

I would also have at least one inner/outer bearing and raceway on hand. You never know what you will find once you pull the hub.

I assume you already know your way around working on hubs and bearings.

Some HOA are flexible with stays when they are notified that the camper will be on site longer for needed repairs, end of season work, or ...

I'm in the Timken Camp as well. As much as I hate feeding the beast, I got my Timken bearings and seals from Amazon. The price for USA made timkens is actually pretty reasonable for the piece of mind it gives me. The Timken seals are made in Mexico..........mine were anyways.
