The fridge in my trailer is not a Krefft. Whatever it is, it's gonna get tossed.

My fridge was not original, if you are restoring to original, I have a lot of painted doors, drawers, wall panels and parts for sale real cheap. Send me your email tlcbuilder@aol.com. IMine looked about like pictures above, but in yellow. What was wrong with axel except age. Seems like everyone is replacing perfectly good axels, what am I missing. Terry

Terry, you are not missing anything. the axles are plenty strong as is but inspect the spindles carefully as they can crack if abused in the past. New brake backing plates and parts are readily available to modernize your axle to current specs, original replacement parts are probably not available at all.

Axle super rusty on mine

tlcbuilder,
my axle was so rusty I thought for sure it was going to snap while driving, litteraly it had been sitting since 1992 on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean. The rust is so bad is has oxidized through some (not many) but some of the exterior end cap panels. The sea air has just ruined most of anything metal on this bad boy.
What would it take to replace the backing plates?
Will the original Hadco drum fit with a new backing plate?
A gentleman that helped me out on the road said that the Hadco drums HAD to go with this axle because of the spindle and backing plate. Not sure if this is correct, or if I could just get a new hub with new backing plate. My guess is the bearing races may not fit.
Anywho, i'll worry about that later. 430 miles later the trailer is home!

My fridge is so corroded that you probably wouldn't want it. Thanks for asking, but I'm afraid to open it up.... no really.
