Hi Guys,

Thought I would just start a new thread since the old one is getting long. The 5er received a new axle assembly yesterday and we are out of Myrtle Beach ahead of the storm. We are now in Belhaven NC until Wed. and then on to Virginia Beach VA for a month. I ordered a new set of Never lube bearings for the other axle but they did not have the equipment to pull them. They did pull the hubs and inspected the bearings and everything checked out fine so we are on the road again. I'll fine a place that can change them up the road.

The last couple of nev r lubes I had changed the shop cut them out with a torch, let the drums cool. Put the bearings in the freezer overnight, slightly warmed the drums in the morning and the cold bearings popped in easily with a press. Previously a fifty ton press struggled to get them out.

WOW!

I am not too far from you.. Be careful of the rain, supposed to rain all week stemming from the storm off shore.. What campsite are you located in, so I can start ask questions about the HDT RV parking and space??

We are in the Riverside Campground. What I've seen so far looks pretty nice. It's raining and I've stayed inside so far. Lots of sites. We are in a pull in site with no room to get the truck out if we needed. However, we got the Smart out and that is all we need. Chose this site to be sure to have our satellite.

Brad, Glad you are on the road again and safe. We are sitting @ the Campark in Williamsburg. 757-565-2101. It is a Passport America and easy to get into and out of. We have a 43 Open Range and have been here for over 2 weeks. Nothing but a pool here at the park but EW&S. A lot to do around Wburg. We did the tourist thing while we were here. And did a lot of nothing. We come up here a lot. We leave tomorrow to go back to Chesapeake. 55 miles!! Where do you plan on staying while in Va Beach? We will be @ the KOA at the beach 4&5 June. We like Holiday Travel Park but its pricy if you can get a super site but they do have other sites avb.. If you need anything I can probaly help. I have a shop at the house so anything you need we can probably take care of. It started raining yesterday and it just quit. I hope for the rest of the day. It just started raining again! Oh well. I'll try to PM U. Pat
