If your Rig as a tag axle, you may want to get the flashlight out and take a closer look.
I know, one more thing to worry about...
Thanks for the warning for other tag axle motorhome owners.
There is but "one" new tag axle available, for the Chevy chassis, which we have.
No one wants to build them anymore.
The tag axle, should receive the same amount of service, that the trailer torsion axle receives.
Regular bearing service and grease seal replacments are a must, every 10,000 miles. If not, the owner may be looking for a tag axle replacement.
