I would figure in $10,000.00 to be safe.. My numbers are a bit old , but will get you in the ballpark. While your at it , ask MORryde for a cost on upgrading your bearings to the USA made Timkens... You may be able to get them to work out a good deal since you are doing everything...

The folks at MORryde are great to deal with , where else will you get a key for their facility doors so you can come and go when you please if staying in the trailer. . .
Thanks!Thats about what I was thinking. They told us about the key as we were wondering if we could stay there or nearby with our dogs. Can't wait to get this done!

They have frowned against pets staying there.. A few of the RW folks were told no when they were coming for their upgrades at the rally... Ask them to know for sure. there is a Marriott , possibly a Fairfield inn just up the road from them ,right across the street from Tiara RV that is Pet friendly.
IF you stay in the RV . .
They start work at 5:45AM , you NEED to be slides in 6am so they have full access to your undercarriage , depending on your habits , that may be hard...

I believe another benefit of getting the brakes from MORryde is that you can get sealed bearings. That option is not available with the Titan brakes. I am only 60% sure that my statement above is correct. 100% sure I could not get sealed bearings with Ron's.

I think you are right Scott. I talked to MoRyde 3 years ago and was told that they would install NevRLube bearings at an additional cost. I hade the NevRLube bearings on my previous fifth wheel and loved them. Never had to worry about lubing all those bearings.

When I talked to MORryde about the Never-R-Lube Bearing, they didn't recommend them for a heavy trailer. We did have them put on our Montana, but it weighed approx 5K Lbs less than our MB. If you have a light weight trailers they're a good deal, but with our heavy units I would question it.
Best to do is ask when you make your appointment and see what they suggest. I'm pretty sure if you have problems with the Never-R-Lube they aren't as easy to replace.

I agree with MHS, I don't want never lube bearings on this beast, too heavy. On a much lighter trailer I think they would be great. Same with the Never Fail bushings, give me the bronze with wet bolts any day.

I can tell you that if you do have a problem with the nevRLube, you have to first of all find a replacement (keeping an extra one on hand could solve that), then you have to find someone that can press out the old bearing and press the new bearing into the hub. That could be a real issue, depending where you are at the time you need it. I had them on a NuWa Hitchhiker that had a GVWR of 14000 lbs. They were Dexter, not Lippert and I was able to get the replacement bearings for around $90.00 each and then the added cost of pressing in and out which I think was around $50-$75 at a local bearing shop. It was hard finding the right bearing and I ended up ordering through a local Dexter dealer.

DRV uses sealed bearings and most have a much higher weight than we do. Some owners are carrying a spare rotor/hub/bearing (which is what I would do) to avoid delays in case of a problem.
I looked at changing to these sealed bearing hub/rotors on Kodiak's site (KHR138XL9E), but in the end ran out of time and just replaced with Timkens & seals. Maybe next year. Added new Stainless Steel backed pads while I was in there.

I'm not sure I understand the correlation between a never lube axle/bearing and weight. I can provide examples to you all day long of machinery and vehicles, significantly heavier than an RV, where sealed bearings are customary.

That is what I was thinking.
