I don't believe all states will give you an allowance for a generator. In any case, I don't have a generator on that truck. I can burn 10 gallons of fuel and be under the legal limit. Chances are that they would not bother me being so little over, but you cannot tell these days. States are starving for money and we are a nice target.

My "new" axle stub has been on for a little over a month, and no problems at all. I greased packed all the wheel bearings on the trailer last year when I got it, so that I wouldn't have any oil problems.

The axle doctor said that failures on greased packed ones were rare, BUT did happen, he blamed it on the bearings, he said they just aren't good quality anymore.

I found out from a friend of mine that he had replaced the stub on his drive axle 2 years ago, they can even do that now, he said no problems at all with it, pretty slick repair if you ask me, saves time and money, the local trailer parts place here has a new trailer axle complete for $1500, over the counter, doesn't include brake shoes,drums or brake cans, has the "S" cams though.

I think we got off cheap with the fix

It didn't seem like it was a good deal at the time, but when you consider the cost of replacing the entire axle and labor it was a good deal.

after 1 day looking over my equip, while being unloaded 15 miles from home, I noticed the sight glass from hubcap was broke.I put more oil in hub & drove home. ever since then I keep a spare, with gasket & silicone & check every wheel every time I stop. well almost every time. the farther away from home I go the more often I check.

It is a good idea to keep a close check. I still can only speculate as to how it happened. I still think that he somehow damaged the hub cover when the wheels were buried. The people who did the spindle repair said that the axle should not have any more problems and that it was stronger than before. I don't know about that, but so far it seems to be doing fine. I have another trailer that I need to check. It keeps getting water in the axle. I had it welded several years ago, so it may have a crack in the weld. It only gets water in the wheel when it rains heavy. So far, I can't find a way that water could be getting into the axle when it is just sitting.

Default Spindle repair

The Axle Surgeon California is the best place for spindle repair. For the costs, you do not need to spill tons of your money. They people can take care of your job easier.
