RE: Help Needed: Rear axle is leaking lube - RV was sitting

If you pack the outside bearing the gear oil will not flow to the inside bearing. 1. If you put some grease on the outer, why would you NOT do the same to the inner? 2. The oil will eat away the grease very quickly. 3. :packing" may be the wrong term here. Usually just some grease, to be sure the bearing is lubed right away. Not packed, like one would do on a grease only bearing.

RE: Help Needed: Rear axle is leaking lube - RV was sitting

If your going to clean the bearings as well as Fireup did I'd hand pack them before I put it all back together. Is this correct for this axle? Shouldn't the bearing be lubed by the oil and not packed in grease? Bill A lot of mechanics will put grease on the bearings, even though they are normally oil lubed. Ensures lubrication IMMEDIATELY, before the oil might get there. Just insurance. The grease will melt into the oil pretty quick, and will disappear.

RE: Help Needed: Rear axle is leaking lube - RV was sitting

You should've headed south sooner, the cold got you. There is no need to replace the good looking brake shoes but the oil needs to be burned out of them with a torch. If I was doing it myself I would do the one side with the major leak and not worry about the other side as warmer temperatures may solve the problem. I disagree. It is possible that the warmer weather will stop the leak. But, the fact it leaked, shows it is bad. Replace it now. It will need replacing soon anyway, might as well do them both at the same time.
