Bearing Question

Hello All, sorry if this question has been ask. I want to replace the existing inner and outer wheel bears/seals on my 2015 Aerolite 288RLSS. I was told I had to remove existing inner/outer bearings on each wheel to get the proper numbers.
Is there an easier way. Thanks Norm

3500# axle for your model. Dutchmen switched from Dexter to Lippert axles after serial number FP910516. The serial number is the last 8 numbers of your VIN. You can order bearings and grease seals from the internet as long as you know the size and make of your axle. Click image for larger version

Here is the service manual. Unless there is some sort of damage to the bearings, you can just remove them, inspect them, repack them with grease, and reinstall them. You will just needs bearing seals. Look at YouTube and search bearing repack or bearing service. light-duty-hubs-drums-and-bearingsd07a839d2ba463c18d7aff64007a4014.pdf

This is the 2nd post you've been kinda short on. It seems you're only reading the first post, and nothing afterwards.

The question was asked, and answered.... and the project completed successfully. There's nothing left to Google.
