Travers St. Louis RV / Camper / Camper Axle Bearings
The limitation of every RV / Camper / Camper axle are the bearings inside. The bearings are made of a strong composite metal and are well-lubricated; however, the intense friction and heat constantly impacting the bearings will cause them to eventually start to wear out. Other factors like hauling heavier loads can increase the friction and heat applied to the axle bearings and can cause the bearings to start going bad. It is possible that a bad bearing can leave you stranded but it is likely that you will start experiencing warning signs that you need RV / Camper / Camper Axle Repack Service before you have a total bearing failure.

The value of fresh axle bearing grease:
Every RV / Camper / Camper Axle Repack Service will inspect your bearings and seal to ensure peak performance and reliability. Even if the wheel bearings are good, they must be cleaned and lubricated with new grease. Since the new grease is needed as a lubricant when the axle bearings are in operation, the consequence of not providing fresh grease is that they can overheat and ultimately fail. Fresh grease is the best way to protect your new bearings so that they stay lubricated and cool.
