Spindle Replacement on 2006 Fleetwood Prowler Camper


How do you remove and replace the spindle on a 2006 Fleetwood Prowler 25 camper?


Expert Reply:

Replacing the spindle on your axle will require cutting the old spindle off and welding a new spindle (see link) in its place. You would need to find a certified welder so that he has the proper tools and welding equipment to make the repair. To figure out which spindle is correct for your trailer you can use the bearing part numbers, both inner and outer, axle weight capacity and the shape and length of the spindle stub on your trailer. The bearing numbers will let you cross reference the correct spindle measurements for your hub. The axle stub shape and length will allow you to use the same mounting position as the original spindle.

Many times a new axle is the way to go if you have reason to replace one of the spindles. You may find that since you have the axle out of the trailer, or have to have someone remove it and repair it, that the cost will be about the same or just slightly more to replace the axle with a new one. You should also keep in mind that the spindle you referenced, # TRU37FR, is rated for 2,600 lbs, so if your trailer axle is rated for over 5,200 lbs you will be derating the axle and limited to 5,200 lbs per axle.

At this time we do not carry trailer axles so a local RV dealer or trailer manufacturer may be your best option.
