Bolts missing on the caliper is serious stuff! Did the axle installer forget them or just leave them loose?

They need to use grade 8 bolts and I don't think this is always happening. When I had IS installed all bolts broke on LR and had to ge back to Elkhart because axle bracket was bent. Mor/ryde replaced both axles and went to 8K.

I think the young fellow who was helping with the install didn't tighten them up, the owner of the installation place said he will pay for all expensed occurred.

As for the wiring problem I took everything I can think to check apart. It only happens when the slide is going out/in and the only place where wire could move is where the wires come up through the floor under the bed and I have checked every wire and can't duplicated the problem without the slide moving. Its sure got me?????

Well I have taken everything apart I still for the life of me can't find out where the short is!!!! I can put a new fuse in and could be ok for a day or two or it could be just a few minutes. I do know that wiring in these rigs are a mess. I guess if I can get hold out until i get home then the next step will be to tear out the walls. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Did you replace each bearing race as well? I received two of the Timken bearings today that I ordered and neither one of them came with the outer race. Looks like that has to be ordered separate?

Ya,
I don't think you want to install a new bearing on the old race.

I don't want to. Whenever I bought bearings in the past for whatever project they came with the race. I didn't see where NW Snowbirds listed the the race p/n above so I was just curious if maybe someone forgot to pack them with the new bearings.

As long as the race is in good shape without nicks, you should be all right.

Agreed. Its not necessarily best practice but I've done in many times in the past if the race is in great shape. It can be a pain to remove a race if you don't have access to the right tools for the job.
