Camper connumdrum

Hi everybody. I recently bought a 2007 Aerolite 160 camper and am having a difficult time finding the bearing size. I want to install bearing buddys but I'm not sure of the size. The is nothing about it in the manual that came with the camper and my searches online have come up empty If anyone can help me it will be greatly appreciated.

Do not use bearing buddies they are for boat trailers that go under water. you have to repack the bearings by hand.

Two suggestions for you.

1) This is likely a Lippert 3.5k axle or possibly a Dexter. You may be able to identify it from closely inspecting the axle tube. Might find a part number.

2) Easiest way to identify the bearing(s) is to pull the hub. Clean them off to see part number. The example would be 25580 (not manufacturer specific), this number is not for your axle.
If they are in good shape repack grease. I do suggest a new grease seal. While you got hub off you can inspect brakes as well.

I would agree with previous post not recommending use of bearing buddy.

This is picture of my spare (emergency) bearings. This is for a 7k Lippert Axle outer bearing. The grease seal is on top. If you look closely at the part number 14125A. You number will be different.
