Wheel hub replacement


Recommended Posts

One of my wheel hubs has fallen off due to broken back clips.

Has anyone ordered replacements and can give order advice?

Thanks.

Those are hub center CAPS. I sure hope your axle hubs don’t come off. File a Service Request and Oliver can send you a new one, or a new set. There is no other source for them, I am sure.

Thanks for the reply and mechanical word correction. Woodworker and geologist here; so when we talk rocks and/ or wood sometime maybe I can do better for you.

You might consider removing the decorative hub caps altogether. This will allow you to check wheel hub temp using a non contact IR thermometer or by hand. You can also watch for a loose bearing cap. You can also adjust wheel bearing play without having to remove the tire and wheel assembly. 
 

I don’t use the x-chocks anymore either.

Interesting suggestion. Doesn't look bad without and would eliminate another ongoing maintenance  (however small it is) task.

Thanks.

I think they are more of a gimmick than actually a device to chock the trailer. Nothing chocks better than a big chunk of wood or rubber. I don’t think they do much to stabilize the trailer, they are just another step in setting up and taking down, and they are just something else in the way. The simpler you make the process the better.

Check with Oliver service.  These are unique to Oliver.  I lost one and Oliver service sent me a replacement.  Mike

For sure their logo is unique. If you want the covers, some are against them, and do not care re the logo, you can go with any number of caps. The domes are standard, and the cap size standard, with so many choices of logos or art patterns.

These solve the issue at $15 for set of 4. Hundreds of other choices too. The size (47mm OD of inner stays) listed in this ad is what you need: Amazon.com: Modengzhe 4 Pcs Plastic Snap-in Type Wheel Center Hub Cap 54mm Outer Diameter and 47mm Inner Diameter for Cars, Chrome ABS Base Lattice Top : Automotive

For what it is worth, I removed my "Hubs", then purchased  & replaced them with the following.

        https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AEBBBGC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They do make it easier to read hub temps with an IR gun and as mentioned above, the removable rubber cap allows access to the axle nut if it needs adjustment.

One other tool that I previously had, similar to this makes it easier to remove and re-insert your axel dust caps.

B~Out,

PS here are some pics, they show what the rubber caps look like.  Ours are a bit dusty, from last ND road trip.

If I recall, it was John Davies that first posted the idea.  A primary purpose was to facilitate the use of an IR temperature sensor at rest stops to periodically check the hub temperature directly.  This I do as well.

Question - has anyone determined if the TPMS temperature measurement will track (albeit delayed) bearing heating due to bearing wear and impending failure? I like the hub caps and use bearing buddies along with periodic bearing repacking to minimize the chance of bearing failure.  And yes, the bearings were replaced with genuine Timken's before our Alaska adventure.

Yes - 

Its all relative.  By this I mean if you check both the hubs (covered or uncovered) and the rims near the hubs on a regular basis with a TPMS or a hand held temperature sensor, you will soon "learn" what your "normal" readings are for your rig.  Deviations from these "normal" readings should send you on a mission to find the cause of the difference in temperature.  The answer may be simple - the sun is shining on that side of the camper or your tire pressure is too low or the road you're traveling is severely "crowned" in the center or you've been "riding" your brakes in traffic or going down a long hill.  Or, it could be the first signs of bearing failure or a "dragging/sticking" brake.

I've never had an unexplained "problem" with my Ollie (yet), but, on a couple of RV's previous to the Ollie both the TPMS and checking at each stop really saved my bacon.
