That sloppy fit on the inner bearing is normal. Nothing to worry about. It's all held together when assembled and tightened to spec. Glad your on the way and comfortable with the job.

Thanks much. All set with properly greased bearings, new seals & brakes.

Muffler shop welded tailpipe section back on the Dodge 3500.

Should be good to go.

Home Sweet Home

2 weeks later and almost 5,000 miles later . . . all is well.

Airstream pulled a lot nicer after the wheel bearings were properly serviced with new seals. New brakes @ $50 a side, from Inland RV are a bargain - made in the USA was a nice surprise.

One wheel has studs and the other has lug nuts. One of the lug nut bolts is stripped.

Any suggestions on where to purchase studs & tapered nuts for that wheel? How do I put them in so they won't work there way loose?

Thanks for all your help and thanks Inland RV for having the parts I needed to get my trailer ready for the journey home!
