Andy: I have a 1995 36' Cutter LE and am currently stranded in Port Lavaca, Tx. Our rear axle seal on the curbside rear axle failed resulting in a broken axle. We had the MH towed to a truck repair company and they are trying to locate a refurbished axle to replace the Dana rear end with a 5.35 rear end. We have been searching for over a week to no avail. There seem to be many available with a 4.10 rear end. I am reluctant to move in this direction---Any advice???
Thanks

Brod...
Sorry to hear you're having trouble on the road, always stressful.

While I can't assist, I do recommend you start a "New Thread" in the Motor Home section and title it HELP.

I think you will get a better response and visibility.

Best of luck,

Michael

We cannot help you with the drive axle, or any of it's parts.

We can help you with the tag axle.

Broken Axle Seal with a broken axle and rear end

Andy: We have a 95 Airstream MH Cutter Le Gas 36'. Axle made by Dana and gear ratio is 5:35. Chassis is by Ford. Truck repair shop is Fort Lavaca, Tx has been searching for over 1 week for refurbished rear end with no luck getting the right gear ratio. 4:10 ratio is available.

Any thoughts???

We do not carry "drive axles," or any parts for them.
