Replacement Bearing Kit and Tools to Install on 2014 Forest River R-Pod Travel Trailer


Hi, Im looking for some help finding a bearing kit for my 2014 Forrest River RPod 179. It has a Lippert diamond torsion axle. Im interested in all components Id need to replace the bearings and seals as well as the tools I need to remove and reseat the seal. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.


Expert Reply:

The Bearing Kit # BK2-100 should contain all the correct bearing, seals and races for 1 wheel. I always recommend pulling one hub apart and confirming the correct spindle. These fit the most commonly used axles under your 2014 Forest River R-Pod 179 but that is not a guarantee as manufacturers sometimes change components or the part were changed by a previous owner (See Picture and Article).

A Seal Puller # PTW1219 will help you remove the old seal off the hub. The 7-Piece Installation Set # PTW83020 will include the different sized discs required for you to install the new races and seals into your hub. And for the new bearings some Trailer Wheel Bearing Grease # L11390.

If you don't already have EZ lube axles you can add the Bearing Buddy # BB1980A-SS. If you do have EZ lube axles I recommend getting a new set of caps # DC200L-DCRP as they are often damaged during removal.
