Trailer: 2020 Escape 19!!
Posts: 44
Hello all. I have a 2020 E19. I noticed my passenger side front tire is wearing on the inside. The tires are fairly new. I have to admit but I have never had the brakes inspected . I have only done local Florida trips. I want to take it to a shop because we are doing a 3 month trip out west starting in March. In reading the forum it sounds Iike the bearings need to be repacked. I had heard that they should not overpack them. Need some Escapee advice! Thank you!!!

Ask around

Ask around for a good shop to do your brake inspection and repacking. There are shops that specialize in service for trailers and that can be one venue. Folks have complaints about the big box RV service shops, but it ALL depends on the experience and good service of the person doing the work. Local independent garage mechanics can do excellent work.
Ask around.
And consider replacing that tire.
This type of service ain't rocket science. There should be plenty of shops able to do a good job.
Research it too. Dexter has online info and you can provide a shop with a copy of their service procedures and specifications.

And have a swell trip out West.
