Basement air bearing question

I have a 2004 Itaska Suncruiser on a Workhorse Platform. Can anyone tell me what part number the blower shaft bearings is? Are there two pillar block bearings or just one? I hear an occasional chirp or squeak when I am outside and I am fairly sure that is where it is coming from.:confused.

There are two pillow block bearings, one for each blower…they are the same. Here is a source and picture.

The originals are bronze bushings that have an oil cup on top of the pillow block.
If you must pull your your unit for work access, there is a replacement with sealed bearings. I have lost the link to the source for them, I think Granger has them.
While you have it apart, I recommend replacing the fan capacitor inside the unit. The compressor caps are outside in the electrical box, no access issue there..

I don't know your model#, so here is the 6535 service manual, tell us your model# and I'll add the hot link if that is incorrect.

Petroman - some have changed the bearing you have to oil periodically with a sealed bearing…me being one of them. Here is a pic what I used, I got it from Grainers. Good luck.
