It is important to listen to AS people to learn what to do with your trailer before you have big problems.
To be clear, it was a long time Airstream (service not just sales) dealer that talked me out of replacement before ever seeing my trailer. I did have them repacked, as he was already taking everything apart to replace the whole backing plate, magnets, etc...
I was hoping to spur a discussion that would provide the thinking behind the statements that repacking is important.
