Finally took it to my local Airstream dealer and had them check out my brake job. The tech said the installation looked very good and he re adjusted all four to spec. He also confirmed the electrical flow to all four hubs. Hub still hot! Checked the bearings and all looked good. Still hot! Replaced the new backing plate on that wheel.....fixed the problem! My conclusion.. this is a DIY job that can save you lots of money if you have the right parts and those parts are not defective!
