Center caps on wheels


Recommended Posts

One of my (wheel) center caps keeps falling off when the temperature drops. I ordered a set from Amazon that had been suggested here in the forums but they do not fit. Does anyone know what I can do to remedy the situation? My E2 is still under warranty. Thanks, Mark

Contact Service and I'm guessing that they will ship you some new caps.

Then, when you install these simply put something like E6000 or any similar product on the backs of the caps and that will keep them from "falling off".

More than a few of us, myself included, have found that our trailers look just fine with the eight  FOUR center hub caps and their supporting "Cones ???" removed.  This is especially true of owners that routinely shoot their hubs with an IR temperature sensor.  With the cones and caps installed, it is difficult to get a good bearing/hub temperature readings.  This is the topic of several members here on the forum.

Hey, GJ:  Concur 100%, but we've only found 4 hub caps on the Casablanca....🤪
