From Tammy at ETI:

Every parts store has a different number for the brakes and bearings. The information required really is Dexter #10 Torflex Axle. The parts store will then look up their parts number.

Inner L 68149
Outer L 44649

This axle is one of the most common axle sizes.

It could be something to do with how file is being saved? I regularly save files as PDFs, scan documents as PDFs, and email. Something is weird, hope you get it figured out.

Frequency of Wheel Bearing servicing?

We're fishing for some advice about servicing wheel bearings on relatively new Escape Trailer (1-yr old).

Our one-year old 15A Escape and has logged just 1023 miles, mostly on 5 road trips around western Washington on paved roads. I've read differing opinions about "must service annually" to "every few years" (a little vague, and not recognizing potential hard use if in dirty/dusty roads).

Any thoughts about whether to take trailer into RV servicing place to this spring to get the wheel bearings serviced before starting out on more trips, or is it reasonable (with 1,000 miles on trailer) to wait till next year?

As always, thanks to this nice forum for any input/suggestions.

If it was me, and with that low of mileage annually, I would go at least 3 years before servicing. Others would do it differently though. If the time and money are of no concern, there is definitely no harm in doing them now.
