If the kid at the counter can't find it in his book.... wave the old man over and he will walk right back and grab a set including the seal.

If ya popped one wheel off that wasn’t destroyed, you could have had numbers for both bearings and seals and if ya don’t live in the boonies, Amazon would have had them on your doorstep a couple days ago.

I predict we will not hear from the OP on this again.

I have had good luck with NAPA. If you remove your old bearings and seal, there are numbers stamped into them. Take a set with you and NAPA can cross reference them. They should not be hard to get.

Gary,
I don't know where you are in Michigan, but we have bearing stores all over the place. What you do need to do is get all 5 numbers. I don't know about your unit, but it may well have different numbers for the inner and outer bear sets and each of those is two part numbers. The seal is a third.
I hope the spindle isn't damaged. That often happens when a bearing goes bad.
When you get all 5 numbers, use a marker to write them inside a cabinet door so you will have them next time.

I carry all bearings and a seal to do 1 wheel. Plus in the garage I have enough seals to do all my trailers, and shoes springs and magnet for 1 wheel per trailer. If I decide it is a nice day to service a trailer I don't want to hunt parts.

Larry was wrong : )

So I ended up doing the obvious and taking off another wheel and retrieving a good inner and outer bearing, and took them, along with the hub, to my local RV dealer where I was able to get a new correct inner and outer bearing and races at a very reasonable price, along with plenty of good advice. Thank you all for your tips and special thanks to Chum Lee, who I believe was the first to point out the obvious solution, especially since it was really about time to repack all the wheels anyway, which I've now completed.

That is a great idea. I'll be going back to my dealer tomorrow and buying bearings for 1 or 2 wheels to have in the trailer at all times for just such a case. We were very lucky this time that we had just arrived home when we discovered the problem. Also, so lucky that we had a double axle trailer.
