I had my bearings repacked, brakes inspected etc. last year by a local tire/wheel/auto repair place I've always used for tires and tire repair. $120 for pulling, packing the bearings and inspecting/adjusting brakes (my last trailer did not have self adjusting brakes).
July 10, Saturday.
Google maps says 6 hr 41 minutes driving which means about 8 hr with fuel and a drive thru lunch. I think one of them is a woman that is the warehouse boss. I hope they stop and get some sleep.
They'll be working on the double wide concrete driveway. I'll put the awnings out on the south side but it'll still be hot working on the concrete.
That's a dang good price for that bearing work. Consider yourself lucky.
Something I've been thinking about...wonder if we will be able to see the grease seal? I've never had a trailer with disc brakes. I would be tempted to give that grease fitting on the spindle a few shots occasionally.

Giving the spindle a few shots of grease might be OK on a rig with disc brakes as it won't/shouldn't contaminate the brakes, but I would recommend NEVER do that with any rv with drum brakes UNLESS you're 110% sure of the quality/condition of the grease seal.

^ 10-4. I wouldn't do it unless I could see the entire seal.

That you tube video on painting the graphics looks very labor intensive. You would have to catch it very early too. I could not do it for mine because the decals are very badly peeled and curled. I doubt that the paint job would last very long...maybe long enough to sell it? I got mine cleaned off very nicely with this method:
1) Heat and peel decal off.
2) 3M spray adhesive remover and plastic scraper to get majority of the glue off.
3) Grease and wax remover and blue non-abrasive scouring pads.
4) A little elbow grease.
The scouring pads took off even the really blackened, dried up glue residue. I have contacted a local vehicle wrap company about getting a large decal (2’x3’?) to break up the expanse of whiteness and hide the ghosting a bit, but haven’t gotten a response yet. If it doesn’t pan out I can live with it the way it is.

RV graphics are ridiculous. Waste of time and money, I'd pay more to get an rv without them!

Well I sent the graphics shop pictures on May 17, and she said she would forward them to her boss and get me a rough price. I sent a follow up e-mail on the 25th, and have gotten NO reply....so I guess they don’t want the work. Oh well, I think it looks a lot better now, and I can live with the ghosting.

They also sell on Ebay. I purchased new graphics from them over 4 years ago. All have held up well except the one on the front cap. It has faded a lot, probably because that part faces south in our storage lot. They still sell those graphics, and it would cost about $100 to purchase new ones.

Use the "book" method to install. Make sure to burnish new graphics prior to installing.
